Re: Question on Thailand
Thailand is a grown mans Disneyland.* You can do almost anything you could want to do on a very cheap budget.*
But I agree, watch out for the street peddlers, they are out to screw you.* Also, if a guy hands you a monkey and takes your picture.* Pay for it or you'll get a nasty surprise!!!* Better yet, don't take the monkey.
If you own anything American like old Levis, military stuff etc... It is worth a LOT in trade.
I did actually win out on one trade there from a street peddler.* He was offering me every piece of garbage under the sun for my watch.* After he gave me what I thought was an offer I couldn't refuse, I gave him my watch.* He looked back at me really pissed off and pointed to the back of the watch where it said "Made in the Phillipines".* he he. :P
Try the Thai whiskey, it is pretty good stuff.* Don't drink the water.* Do eat the fruit it is excellent.* If you go in the farming country, some farmers will let you eat their fruit out of hospitality.* Give them something.* They are very kind people.* The pineapple is to die for.*
All in all Thailand was a absolute blast.* Highly recommended.
Lieutenant Dan got me invested in some kind of fruit company. So then I got a call from him, saying we don't have to worry about money no more. And I said, that's good! One less thing.* * * * ** Forrest Gump
