Thailand

Photos from Thailand, 2007 February

Most of the cringel.com visitors don't ask for text, they ask for images.

So I go out of the way and let the images speak for themselves:

Asian street signs series. Thailand, Ko Samet: Baht means local currency in Thailand. I was thinking for a long time what could be in that room (treasury?), but at last I understood that what they want to say is not baht, but bath.

Is it difficult to update your blog while sitting on the seashore?

It is impossible, I can tell you.

Astonished and ashamed I am looking at the date of our last cringel.com update, which was January 28th, or 9 days ago.

"Have you already had vodka this morning?"

That's what we ask each other right before breakfast.
Thai food is perfect, but we are used to quite a different cuisine,
so we do as our first aid instructor advised - drink a small shot of vodka in the morning and before we go to sleep, just to make sure there's no infection in the digestion system. Maybe it sounds a little bit too paranoid, but it's better to be on the safe side than to ruin a whole trip during the first month.

We have 5 plastic 0.5 liter bottles of Finlandia, so that should last for a month or so.  READ MORE »
