@KSM your offer sounds inviting. Unfortunately I have 10 more days of Thailand to suffer through.

Of the places I've been, Thailand is my favorite - by far.  The land of smiles. 

What parts are you visiting this trip?

I’m in Ko Phangan right now. Been to Bangkok, Pattaya, Rayong, Samet, Phuket, Patong, Samui, Uttaradit, Nong Khai, Udon Thani, Laos to reset my visa, Loei, Chiang Mai, Pai, Chiang Rai and probably a few other places I forgot. Headed back to Bangkok tomorrow, then a 3 day tour to Angkor Wat in Cambodia, back up north for a few days and then I head back out of Bangkok on the 17th. Magical holiday so far.

Dang, that's a nice trip - haha, yeah the 30 day visa run.  Angkor is fantastic - you'll need a car and guide to see and learn as much as possible in the 3 days (or perhaps just a bike and a book).

If you like ruins the ones I liked with some size to them were Sukhothai (and nearby Si Satchanalai, which has far fewer tourists), and Ayutthaya for a day trip (50 mi north of BKK)

Thanks.  Having a Thai friend that has acted as my personal guide as been great. Her nephew drives a cab in Bangkok so he was our personal driver for the first week. She is from Loei and we used her pickup truck to drive around up north. It is parked at Udon Thani so we have to get back there sometime.

I found a 3 day van tour that will take 4 of us.  Friend, her sister and a friend. To Angkor Wat so we will have our own driver. Almost all inclusive- even includes a hot air balloon ride. Keeping the Thai women interested in ancient ruins is slightly more than a challenge. They want to find something to eat. Constantly.

Don't I know it...

That looks like a really good trip - from what I understand that used to be a 14 hour slog standing up in the back of a truck with the other hapless tourists.  And just happy the road was passible that day

I'd like to go back to Cambodia sometime and see more of it

How did they get that paper to stick to the brick wall? That's odd. And BTW her sleeves are too long as if the jacket is oversized. A lot of disturbing things going on there.

Tonight I overheard a woman at the table next to us say to her lady friends that she didn't believe in shock collars for misbehaving dogs but quickly went on to say that she was in favor of shock collars for husbands. She didn't giggle after she said it and I think it scared me.. creepy. She's a mean, mean woman.

This is more a random stupid complaint/whine. My phone is messing up. Big time. It drops calls. When I use speakerphone I can hear the other person but she can't hear me. Ok Google ignores me. The screen freezes. Too many other weird things. What makes all of this worse is all of these problems are intermittent. I had to scrounge around and find an old phone. The only one I could find was my last unsmart phone

I have had this phone for maybe 4 months. I'm already constantly dealing with Evil Alexa on my Fire. Now this. Why am I cursed with electronic qi? Why can't I have nice things? That work?

What is the lesson here? WHY ME???????

Isn't qi positive energy? 

Have you tried acupuncture on it?

@TigerLily "Do not place your faith in such trinkets of deception" - Dracula (Bram Stoker's) The Gary Oldman version.

Technology is EVIL and synthetic. I'd send us all back to the 70's when shit was real. Although I guess I'd need a diaper change :-\

Don't ignore me on this one. These devices are nothing more than distraction driven by a malevolent agenda. Don't be a sucker, you're better than that.  Too much? I don't care.

@KSM  You had me at Bram Stoker's Dracula. I'm a sucker for vampires (get it? sucker?) and nobody played Dracula like Gary Oldman. I watch it at least every Halloween season

I believe you are right about technological toys. I'm just proud I resisted the Apple temptation (hmm. I'm on a roll tonight with the metaphors). I actually do resist new tech for awhile. I was the last of my friends to get a smartphone. I resisted until it became more of an inconvenience not having one. But I will continue my own little rebellion. Especially since Tech treats me so bad.

It is really sad to see everyone ignoring real people and life as they stare at their phones. Thanks for the pep talk
