Get Google spell check. great and it works on just about anything.Apologies for the spelling in my last reply - too much singha !!!!!
I have 2 problems 1. I cant type worth a damn And 2. I have partial dyslexia.
for some reason some word constantly come at wrong (taht) is one of them 90 % of the time that's how I time it.
I look like enough of an idiot for some of the things I say without adding bad spelling to it.
On to litter, as far as the ocean is concerned I agree it's dumped by a lot of the ships that dock here at night. Off pattaya we have to have at least a hundred at night. Problem 2. is the storm drains apparently are dispersed into the ocean along with any trash they carry with it.
I guess Thai culture has something to do with it. Not only Thais but others as well.
example, we go to the village and Mama opens a pack of noodles, wads up the cellophane paper it's wrapped in and throws it out the window next to the house. I go out side and there's just a load of stuff laying around in the weeds.
We recently went to Kanchanaburi and we go to a Temple that you have to take a boat to, a girl gets off the boat and she has one of those plastic bags half full of coffee and ice. Decides she's through with it and just throws it on the ground, and walks off chatting to her friend.
I wanted to grab her by the arm and ask her "what the heel are you doing. don't you have any respect for your country" My common sense intervene. BTW I picked it up carried it past her, gave her a look and deposited it in the first trash can I found. She could care less.
I'm an American and some of us are no better. I used to do allot of hiking/backpacking. One of the strangest thing I saw was we came upon a grocery store shopping cart in the middle of a trail at least 5 miles from nowhere, not they couldn't have pushed it through the trail so they had to carry it. another thing that highly bugs me is to come across a beautiful waterfall with a little pond and some idiot has thrown or shot beer bottles in the pond so you have a lot of broken glass in a area were people are going to dive and swim. what type of idiot does such a thing.
Pack it in. pack it out. and pick up whatever else you can carry.
Sorry for the rant.
