Re: The Chicken Bone Man

Out in the countryside I've seen people many times sitting by the side of a road, by a bridge, or under a tree picking small morsels off the ground and eating it. I think that, and the case and the chicken bone man, there are some mental issues in play. Similar to the local guy near me who walks dow...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

As an FYI, Hua Hin now has its own radar loop. See below link.

Looking at the center of the source, the device(s) must be in one of the Thai Navy buildings/sites directly adjacent to the beach. Pete :cheers:

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

Yes, I agree wholeheartedly. If the theory is correct we should start to see pollution of all types decreasing in China, Vietnam, India, and also here in Thailand. I hope!

Indonesia, Cambodia, Burma, Philippines and Laos have much further to go IMO. Pete :cheers:

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

More examples of what is going into the Pacific Ocean from that place. I think it's fair to say the greater the poverty, the greater the pollution. Those struggling everyday to get enough to eat aren't going to give a toss about waste. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eauaTzEDQWg https://www.youtube....

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand
