  1. So what do we do to prepare for a dry season water shortage? I assume/hope it will not affect bottled water. Can anyone confirm that?

  3. I took a Baht bus from Pattaya to Jomtien this afternoon. Usually, the bus goes along Jomtien Beach Road until it gets to Soi Chaiyaphruek, and then I get thrown off. Today, the bus just kept going towards Na Jomtien. I stopped it at Lumpini Park Beach - about 3/5ths of a mile past Soi Chaiyaphruek, but it felt much further. The road is single lane each way at that point. I walked back along Beach Road until the road takes a sharp right to Pattaya - about 2.5 miles, I think. The walk along Jomtien Beach is very familiar to me, and nothing much has changed except I was very aware of how many signs in Chinese there are now - particularly for pharmacies. And it is quite clear who this condo development is aimed at. There are two areas of beach between Lumpini Park Beach and Soi Chaiyaphruek on which fishing boats are kept. It was an overcast day - not the greatest for sitting on the beach - but, even so, there was a respectable number of people there. This was near Lumpini Park and this was nearer the other end In the not too distant past, the beach would have been swarming with Russians, but there weren't that many to be seen today. It's going to be difficult to identify who on the beach are tourists in the future if a lot of them are Chinese! There were two teams of workers giving the beach some TLC - one watering the trees, and another cleaning the beach of leaves and other rubbish. On the whole, the state of the beach was quite good, but there were a few spots where damage was evident. The usual beach services were available! In several places, there were swarms of quite large flying insects. As you can imagine, it's not easy for a small p and s camera to photograph them but this is the best I managed. Does anyone know what they are? Giant hornets, maybe? This little guy and his mate put on an impressive acrobatic show as I was passing!
  4. I believe it was some sort of awards ceremony which took place in the evening.
  5. I think we have to differentiate between hotels which: 1. Won't allow a joiner at all 2. Will allow one joiner for an extra charge 3. Will allow one joiner free, but charge for a second 4. Will allow one joiner free, but won't allow more 5. etc.
  6. There was some sort of event at Central Festival Mall, Pattaya, this afternoon. With the absence of all but Thai signs, I have no idea what it was all about! If you can read Thai, it would be great if you could tell us: With the TV (and/or film) cameras there, I'm guessing it was something a bit more than the usual food festival! There were a lot of Thais dressed in traditional costume. My guess is that it was some sort of awards ceremony for the great and the good hisos.
  7. And these were the rates at TT on Soi Buakhao at 22:14
  8. Money Exchange on Soi Diana usually has rates very similar to TT. This is what they were showing at 20:44 today:
  9. People who take up the width of a pavement/sidewalk or escalator, thus stopping me get by.

  11. ..... and possibly suspicious! 😊
  12. Fine on my Samsung Android 'phone, provided I zoom in.
