Re: Great service at immigration

Is it? I don't remember in what thread "letters" were discussed? Seems odd though as they are sitting there comparing old to new, and immigration offices have chip readers these days, so there is zero chance of identity info changing. I did mine in Rayong, but back in 2012 so perhaps before the time...

Re: Wildlife hunters must face justice

This has dropped off the radar - does that mean they have quietly walked away from any prosecution? No, I read that the big boss, Premchai Karnasuta, goes to trial sometime in 2019. I forget the exact month but if I come across the article again I'll post. I think it was in the BKK Post last week s...

Re: The Chicken Bone Man

Out in the countryside I've seen people many times sitting by the side of a road, by a bridge, or under a tree picking small morsels off the ground and eating it. I think that, and the case and the chicken bone man, there are some mental issues in play. Similar to the local guy near me who walks dow...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

As an FYI, Hua Hin now has its own radar loop. See below link.

Looking at the center of the source, the device(s) must be in one of the Thai Navy buildings/sites directly adjacent to the beach. Pete :cheers:

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

Yes, I agree wholeheartedly. If the theory is correct we should start to see pollution of all types decreasing in China, Vietnam, India, and also here in Thailand. I hope!

Indonesia, Cambodia, Burma, Philippines and Laos have much further to go IMO. Pete :cheers:
