The week that was in Thailand news: Thailand reopens! But forget the new normal, this is the old version

Recommended Posts

Why would immigration arrest the blackmailing bint from Bangkok? Surely, that would be a job for the regular plod.

Thanks Rooster for my weekly dose of Thai news. A few points.
 

Firstly, wouldn’t p(b)la ra be called p(b)a ra in Isaan? No l in fish up here!
 

Beware any furry looking caterpillar. Mostly they’ll give you a nasty stinging rash. 
 

I expect March’s road deaths to be way down due to Covid keeping so many people off the roads. Could Thailand set another first by becoming the only country in the world whose overall death rate actually falls during the epidemic?

March was in the figures I quoted. Perhaps A-M-June will be more stunning!

If I plan it right it is going to take 16 days and cost a fortune. But I figure the adventure will be worth it. I shall only go back if my daughter gets married or my son ever graduates!

It's a brilliant term. If it wasn't for 'social distancing' it would be phrase of 2020

That sounds a great adventure.

In the mid 1980s a girlfriend and I had an idea to do UK>Singapore by train, but via the good ol' USSR.

That would have taken six weeks and cost 6,000 UKP each even then.

Needless to say it stayed a dream.

Is there some point in the distant future when we can expect a positive post?
