Assurancetourix - Daily life in Thailand and what I see

Recommended Posts

They overpassed me and I said : " thamrouat ! " but I think many thai people ride something with bad eyes; so I can see them going away after some minutes, don't want to pay a big fine; three people without an helmet on a motorbike, as usual ..

When you see trucks stop on the left side, in the bicycle lane, you are sure there is a good restaurant not far and I look at the trucks, maybe they have a Bibendum ...?? or two...or more ?

no offense but that doesnt exactly look beautiful, come my way, I'll show you a place or 2

Agree with kevjohn, great shots and keep them coming. I wish that I could spend the time riding my bicycle as you do but a back problem I have won't allow it.

If I go for any distance in most cases I will suffer for a week or two.

I meet effectively dogs, some of them are not friendly farang or people on a bicycle and people are first very rare and when I meet some of them always a " wai " and we speak about bicyle and the weather and sometimes about dogs .

Two, maybe three days without cycling ;

not very important I had many things to do these last days .

This morning went to Sakon Nakhon for my 90 days report;

as usual, 5 minutes for that;

on the way to come back, a stop in the house a friend of mine, a thai man who cycle often with me and has also a little mill for airco : houses and all vehicles;

I asked his wife if it was possible to check our Isuzu; never did in 6 years !

Ok; they did it in about 1h and a half; normal price 2,000 baht and for a good friend it's only 1,200 baht ( and 100 baht tip )

I didn't ask, but I can it was my job during 13 years in France;

driving trucks from 35 tons to 120 tons ;

120 tons only when I was living in Italy ; my french boss : " never come back to France with the 120 tons truck " ;

but I came back sometimes with a 70 tons truck ..

I had 45 tons load in the lorry . cheesy.gif
