so what happened when he turned out his pockets and showed the cops he had nothing?

 

I wasn't there so am not 100% sure what went on.

Well, there's a surprise, another secondhand, hearsay story, that is unlikely in the extreme, which the story teller soon backs-off from!

There's a lot of that going on these days.

I'd agree with you, who in their right mind wouldn't?

Its the midnight express syndrome and CM was famous 30 years ago for dealers,  often Tuk Tuk drivers working with the police. Never buy off Thais, Nigerians or Arabs..

"Never buy off Thais, Nigerians or Arabs.."

Obviously you have the experience, otherwise you wouldn't have made that comment, so who would you recommend that drugs are bought from?

So is it safe to say from Soi Cowboy going to Nana is safe walking ? I have a US guy coming in next week I will be showing around. And it will be a late night one. 

It is not safe if you are carrying anything. You should have a good copy of your passport. My copy is laminated to ID card size. You should carry sufficient bribe money at least 10k...

...it was easy to spot plain clothes police every 15 feet. They radio ahead to uniformed police to extort you.

Nonsense, absolute nonsense.  That is not normal in the area that you describe.

All I can do is keep an eye out. What I do know is the black folk do try to get eye contact with you to open up a conversation, and there could be something to that. But I will not stop walking that Nana to Cowboy stretch when out and about as I quite like to walk and see all the weirdness going on. Been doing it for over 25 years plus so no reason to crawl into a scared shell now.

Sorry I didn't bother to reply to your first reply. Looks like it has shaken you up a bit so you have had to comment on every other one,

Hope you are feeling better now.

No, you didn't shake me up at all but I think you'll find that we're allowed to respond to any comments we see fit.  Frankly, based on your earlier tale, I'm happy that you didn't respond!

You as some one who is asking people who they should be buying drugs off, I wish I hadn't either.

You, as someone who couldn't understand a simple rhetorical question, or, more likely, someone who chooses to misinterpret it deliberately obtusely is someone I shouldn't have bothered with either!   But, there you go, it's a public forum, so, hey, ho.

If the black gal is good looking enough I am loving life. Not the dudes.  the black dudes are nothing but bad news unless you can get away with getting something from them and having an adulterated night what you got from them. Never done it though. easier and safer from other places if you want and have been here for sometime. .

Are the Albanians safe?

If you don't mind losing an organ or too, sure.

 

I exaggerate of course (but their criminal elements are notorious for that kind of <deleted> and other disgusting crime), but generally speaking if you put them in a list with the 3 others mentioned, I would trust them the least. Worst people in Europe (not ocunting Roma as they are not really native to here), in my opinion.

Not quite the same but this is not a hearsay story. A few years ago I was in a club near Bed Supperclub, can't remember the name, when the police arrived. All foreigners were asked to show their passports and Thai's asked to produce their ID's. Those who couldn't were arrested and carted off to the police station - Lumpini I think, until someone brought their passports to them. Mine is with me at all times so I was lucky but I saw about 15 western guys taken out before I left. I think the Thai's without ID's were given on the spot fines as I don't remember seeing any of them in the wire mesh paddy wagon outside.

 

A story went around afterwards that the club's owner's were involved in some sort of dispute with the police over 'compensation and licensing' - obviously nothing concrete on that.

A few years ago indeed, time flies when you're having fun, been what, 6 years since Bed Supper closed?

 

Club in question above, Q Bar by any chance?
