I have only been living here full-time for 42 years but my first few trips were in 1975.

I go so far back I can remember when the Thai smile was real.

 

It was the time of the stiletto heel and the mini skirt. Phwoar! And girls were friendly. There were almost no fat girls as there was no McDonalds.

 

Datsun taxis had no air con and were so rusty you could see the road (Flintstone style) right through the floor. You'd get out dripping wet, but you didn't care as beer and girls were cheap.

 

There was no Skytrain and Suwannaphum airport was a Cobra infested swamp.

 

Immigration was a Hell hole at Suan Phlu where you could wait up to 6 hours....... some things never change.

You're welcome.  Not really my idea to come. Just one of those quirks of fate.  

 

Didn't really feel at home till 2004.

Ya.  I feel like that. As I get older I am getting really more quirky.  I shaved my head yesterday.  Now I feel like I should stay at the Wat for a while.

They did this to me when I was a small boy and had blond hair.

I hated it!
