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.

    Just the way it is...

    News, Postbag, Published on 27/05/2019

"The interruption gave the impression that some politicians are still self-serving, rather than serving both their voters and their country. This is unfortunate."
