  1. While Thai tourism numbers are down slightly this year they're still way up there in the overall scheme of things. When I came back here in 2004 (1st visit after being stationed here during the late Vietnam War) there were roughly 5 million visitors per year. Now it's almost at 40 million. That's nearly an 8X or 800% increase! That's a freakin' massive increase folks representing a huge amount of money. No wonder we long term expats are now considered an unwanted liability as ever growing hiso greed engulfs the former Land of Smiles. The handwriting is on the wall expat brothers and sisters.
  2. Ever wonder why all import consumer electronics products are so freakin' expensive here? Ever wonder why choice is so limited with most stores carrying the exact same models at the exact same prices? Now you know.
