Been here 10 years in Chiang Mai. Married all that time. I just turned 70, my wife just turned 60, but looks 40. I adopted her Thai son, who then legally changed his last name to mine, to "honor the man who is my father. He's a school teacher who loves what he does. March will be the final payment on our house, which is valued at over 3.5mil. I don't keep 800k in the bank, but my monthly VA Disability and Social Security combined go well over double the 65k a month income figure. Chiang Mai has changed, grown, over the past 10 years, but I still love it here and can't think of anyplace else I would rather live. I'm here for the duration.
