White Butt Syndrome

Spray tan thread reminded me of this. Over the years when the opportunity arose to drop my trousers, the lilly white butt I have in contrast to tan legs and back is always an item of discussion and laughter. Rightfully so I guess as a Thai is normally the same colour head to toe. Alas, not too many ...

Re: Would you drive a black car in Hua Hin?

Black is terrible to try to keep clean looking. Someone who doesn't know how to use a buffer can wreck the clear coat as well leaving permanent swirl marks. They really don't give you much of a choice of colors here. White, black, silver and one other usually seems to be common. Pete :cheers:

Re: Thai Style Lanna Houses

There are two (of mixed style) in the area where I live that I'll photo and post over the weekend or on Monday. Both built and occupied by Germans. Thinking back, they were/are very popular with Germans perhaps as they (with an imagination) resemble a Bavarian style dwelling. Pete :cheers:

Thai Style Lanna Houses

In the 80's and 90's the below Lanna style house was extremely popular with retiring foreigners who had the money to build/relocate one. Is that still the case? They are beautiful and you only need to visit the Jim Thompson house/compound in Bangkok to appreciate why the style attracts people. I've ...
