  • LoS '19

    Time again for my annual trip to the MooBan.
    First leg of the journey is direct to Bejing.

    Food is not bad at all:

    On arrival, I was reminded what has become of this place:

      Thai Smile girls, no complaints.
      I visited TC a few times as a guest but had to stop. It is a sickening place. - Aging One

        Uneventful final bit, apart from the motocy ride, during which I had to hold on with both hands.

                Nice thread.
                Time for ya to settle permanently, Strolls.
                Figure it out -


                Doesn't this long term on-again, off-again commuting become wearisome?
                Why bother.

                  If only there wasn't this little detail of a steady stream of income...

                  Don't wanna be one of those who'll have spent all their savings at 70+ and have to stroll back to their homeland with their tail between their legs - seen plenty of those during the last few years!

                    indeed, and life has become so much cheaper in Europe, and better food

                      Rent/property prices are the killer where I live.
                      Furthermore, the place is full of Yermans, which is hard to stomach.
                      Thank goodness for cultural diversity.
                      Could feed a family in the MooBan for the price of Somtam in a Thai restaurant, though.

                        Fair enough.
                        Understood.

                              What is it that spurs you to do an annual pilgrimage to the swamp? Can't be the plaa raa, can it?
