Re: Next to Soi 102...are they constructing a mosque ??

Yes soon to be infiltrating into a village near you. Thank goodness the military boys are not too welcoming to abhorrent behaviour in LOS. Just read an article on the net suggesting > 200,000 principally from the "war torn mid east" have applied for asylum in Deutschland. Hopefully they didn't menti...

Re: Good Thai Massage?

Can't beat the air conditioned room, foot wash + ginger tea + traditional Thai massage at Pinkaeow massage in Pranburi. Just past Tesco Lotus on left where road has a slow left bend.
Even worth the ride in the orange bus!

Re: Photo trip report: A month in Myanmar

Great pics and a nice travelogue. My last trip was 40 years ago and I loved Pagan and the people were great.

Yes they do Mr P according to my wife. They refer to them as being impolite and as for the current defacto PM - he is probably correct ha, ha. Haven't you heard the expression wouldn't go near them with a 40 foot pole (sorry to offended poles).

Re: Global Warming 2

The Chinese do produce huge numbers of PV cells albeit not the most efficient. Maybe that's why they are looking are expanding their territories recently as there is not enough space to put all the cells out and align them correctly.
