Foreigners were marvelling at the fish that had come to say hello. 

Must have been tourist fish since they spoke English.

Normally I would ask what are you smoking, and where can I get some

 

But I don't want to be THAT delusional

 Coming soon:

TAT will announce many new arrivals as people book their holiday for Jomtiem after reading this news. 

It will be a great spin.

Went in ankle deep on Pattaya beach today, playing with a toddler.  Water was slightly less disgusting than usual, but still expecting said limbs will have to be amputated in the next couple of weeks.

Are you saying that you actually 'went in' without any form of protection.... ?

Lol, yep.  Any idea of the usual life expectancy?  Is there time to get my affairs in order?

I have heard that with some medical attention, therapy and regular medications you can virtually live a normal life.......

Course they did.

I've been to many countries as a tourist and never once thought to ring up a local paper to report a clean beach or sewage free water.

There are a million beaches around the world where you can't see the sand below so Jomtien is looking better

No matter how "clean" it looks ..... In my 14 years of coming here, I have NEVER entered the waters off Jomtien Beach or Pattaya Beach ... and will NEVER do in the future. I leave that to the Tourists ......

Over the course of several high season visits, I would have spent a couple of hundred hours or so in total swimming at Jomtien beach. Never made me sick yet, maybe I’m just spectacularly lucky.

I think Jomtien used to be OK maybe ten years ago which is the last time I swam in it.  Sure I would see some plastic and stuff floating around, but I never had any issues.  Now after the condo construction glut, there is just too much waste and sewer runoff.  Things were not great before all those high rises, so just where do you think they pump or dump all that grey water
