  1. The cold season started on the 22nd? Almost as precise as Father Ted and the Ice Age Ice Age ended...
  2. [quote] the expressway will have traffic flow of 60,000 vehicles per day, [/quote] Think about that number for a moment. That means that every minute of every day, there will be 42 vehicles passing a fixed monitoring point on that road. In reality, the traffic will be quieter at certain times of the day/night.

I wear a mask when entering shops and in close contact with others. It doesn't inhibit my lifestyle one iota. I guess in Thailand, you will be shunned if you refuse to wear a mask. No-one will be the slightest bit interested in your medical
  7. Sorry about your illness, but it is not a human right to get that exclusion letter. You have to live with your difficulties. Have you tried a bubble helmet, which includes fans/pump to ensure that the supply of air is not restricted in volume?
  8. Dead Civit cats are regularly for sale in my local market in Luang Prabang
