    Brunch, Andrew Biggs, Published on 09/04/2017

    » On busy Rama IV Road, my driver explodes in a mighty chortle. "Well, would you look at that," he says, pointing to the pickup truck in front of us. In the back seat I look up from my position, documents in my lap, crunching numbers. It's been a stressful morning, especially since the numbers in question are the latest lottery results, and my ticket has come nowhere near the 6 million baht first prize.
