Ten Little Indians: How Many of Us are Still left Standing in Thailand?

Recommended Posts

Basically, what I think is that true dyed-in-the-wool Asian guys will never leave Thailand.

We might retreat to Wyoming or Rapid City, but our heart will be left in Thailand, forever.

Still here....Our travel plans are in peril, but, if we had gone at our usual time we might have been stuck in limbo....Possibly with the wife being forced to return while I couldn't as a worse case scenario....

All in all, here is a good, safe place to be....Minimal inconveniences, no dining out, movies, massages, etc.

Have put more time in the kitchen and, on the bright side, we're exercising more.....

Not a lot has changed for me ,the wife has not been able to do her marathons ,although this morning for the first time ,the girls from the club did their first practice together ,mind you only 14.7 kms lol,  we were just walking locally ,but now i am back on the walking machine . apart from that not a lot of difference , we went shopping from the start ,but did not go out for meals ,so a lot more home cooking . ,managed to catch up with a load of series that i had downloaded ,and the wife has been out in the garden more planting stuff.

I snuck out of LOS mid march after one cancellation, and am typing from east coast as the news is on

 

Riots and a pandemic mess, I got back on st pattys day and had I known this collapse was coming I would have stayed there, as hindsight is 20-20.....been pretty much on lockdown since I got back and it sucks

 

Came home to work and got the email today the job I was set up for is not there, so here we are...blah

 

So I can still add my snark here and am trying to get back to LOS asap but not if I have to jump thru 100 hoops and quarantine, etc....but may hope to get back before our idiot president kills us all....

 

Save me a mama cup and a happy ending foot massage....solly mista you pay now..you finish!!!

Why would anyone want to leave Thailand, ok some don't like the current government here.

I certainly don't like the nobs running Australia at present, as many from the US don't like trump.

What do we do, return home and bitch about life or stay here and enjoy what ever years we have left.

I don't know about others but I am happy to stay here and try to get along as best I can

I would have not minded too much if my wife and I got stuck in Australia. The Australian Government has done a fine job with everything. Still, I knew once the airports closed down, there would be no way back to my home in Thailand for a long period of time so the wife and I made the choice to stay here. Nothing for me has changed apart form temperature checks and signing in at shops and wearing a mask. Life just goes on and I spend time reading this forum most days to catch up on news and gossip. I still read most days, watch a little TV, paint, listen to audiobooks and online shop. Most of my friends chose to stay here and only a few went home and now they are worried about jumping through hoops to get back. Sure the world has changed and things are a mess it seems but for many of us life just goes on and that is the way it is meant to be. Just move with the times or winds of change.
