    Fifty fascinating years in Wonderland

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 14/04/2019

    » Having first arrived in Thailand a few days before Songkran, each year the festival approaches it sparks memories of those early days in the Kingdom. This year is slightly more significant because earlier this week marked my 50th year in Thailand, or to put it another way, roughly 18,250 days. That sounds decidedly scary.

    » I was slightly saddened, but hardly surprised, to read recently that after 244 years Encyclopaedia Britannica will no longer publish its printed edition, although it is still available online. I suppose it was inevitable. If you want to update something or make a correction you can do it immediately online, as is the case with Wikipedia. With the printed version, you would have to wait years.
