    But this is rather going off the point. I am not suggesting that westerners should be doing much more, I am suggesting there is nothing wrong with being Thai and wealthy.

    Re: The Things I LUV About Thailand

    The wide variety of street food, some veggie-friendly - 20Bt spring rolls or freshly cooked pad thai sure beat a $2 'dirty dog' or stale pretzel in NYC

    The weather - late March and I'm still freezing my ass when I walk out the door - wish I was in LOS now...

    The Buddhist culture - beautiful temples open to all, unlike Nepal and India where farang cannot enter most Hindu temples, even if they are Hindus

    The wide variety of transportation options - can't think of any other country in the world with motorcycle taxis

    The fruit - just as good if not better than Hawaii because it's so cheap
    I'm tired of looking at the TV news,
    I'm tired of driving hard and being used,
    I tell you, baby, I've got nothing to lose,
    You know my plane is due....

    She admitted it was like 23 cents on the donated dollar actually made it to the people in need. Never donated since.

    You'd love Kathmandu then - KTM traffic actually makes BKK look civilized - when was the last time you had to maneuver around a cow in the middle of the road???

    Thai TV - I remember my first night in BKK, turned on the TV and saw some soap opera with a katoey as one of the leading characters and thought 'what a country!!!'

    yeah - they arrested me on a Thursday evening and my cop friend told me 50k I could walk - couldn't organise it quick enough on the Friday and on the Saturday I went to court which made it too late as negotiations had passed beyond me and the police and reached the judge
