Work and get paid. Even if you believe your motives are altruistic, it is a miniscule percentage of the populations of developed countries as a whole.Originally Posted by WilliamBlake
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.
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....

Had a sister in law that worked for Unicef. She was making just over 100K/year.Originally Posted by WilliamBlake
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???Originally Posted by Bubba
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!!!'
an incorruptible police force and state-of-the-art prison facilities
