PHUKET: Of all the news reported this past week, least expected was the arrest of four people for human trafficking and child exploitation for operating a gang of child hawkers – selling of all things coconut water – at night venues.

This is so sad. It is not the children but the adults that should be arrested. As an expat you see young girls growing up then one day they stop coming round and it breaks your hart wondering where they end up working. There is no help for poor people in Thailand and their choices are very limited.
