  1. Somewhere on YouTube, I remember seeing a video about a free outdoor gym somewhere in Pattaya. I'm not sure where it is, though, but the price is right. Free.
  2. One time I was on a 17 hour non-stop flight to Bangkok. I talked to some girl at the gate and then I didn't see her again for the whole flight until the baggage claim. She said she slept for all but 1/2 hour of the flight by using some Xanax. Maybe you can get a prescription for that?
  3. Not only that, but people surely made less dollars back in 1975 than they do today. Perhaps 1/10 of what they make today. So it's hard to make comparisons between then and now. US dollar inflation, Thai inflation, fluctuating exchange rates, etc.
  4. The problem is that not all economy seats are the same. Depends on the airline and the plane. I've had some trips in economy that were just fine. Other times, I was miserable.
  5. I think the premium economy flights are worth the extra money. I'll be doing that from now on, I suppose, when the seats are available.
  6. Who knows? Anyway, it doesn't go on for too long. The girl in the video is pretty nice. Usually works during the day.
  7. On a lighter note, a clip from Hooters on Beach Road: nTsY9ldtQAq1VZhqpW+S4g.MOV
  8. Pattaya itself doesn't have to be expensive, although you're right, Jomtien is less crowded, less polluted, and has less traffic. Like Pattaya, you can find accommodation in all price ranges.
  9. I've recently used this company back and forth from Pattaya to Bangkok. Booked online and they showed up on time. Good service. https://www.thelimopattaya.com
  10. I don’t blame the Thai authorities for not joining in the race to the bottom.
  11. Yea, the phone cameras seem to do a pretty good job, for what they are. And I always have one with me. Maybe a dslr would do a better job in low light?
  12. Good for American businesses, but only to a point. If they keep it up and continue to destroy the dollar’s value, at some point the rest of the world will have had enough. And when the dollar loses its luster, so to speak, its days as a reserve currency will be numbered. Then what? Big trouble. We’re beginning to see that now. Didn’t Russia and China just make a deal to trade in their own currencies? I think the Romans once tried to print more and more money by diluting the silver in coins. Didn’t work out too well. Ditto for the Weimar Republic in Germany.
  13. Most Americans probably have no opinion whatsoever about the baht. Unfortunately, Trump seems to think he dollar is too strong. So I don’t expect much in the way of dollar strength while he is in office. Maybe the dollar is doomed, in any event? I’m sure the money printing will continue.
  14. I use US dollars, not pounds, so I suppose I may be in somewhat better shape. Still, I’m not sure what my “tipping point” might be. It’s not really costing me much to be here, so the only thought going through my mind:, from time to time, is whether I could live in similar circumstances elsewhere in the world and at what cost. It”s not hard to imagine. Spain? France? Mexico? Costa Rica? Panama? There’s no real reason I have to be in Thailand.
