    So Bert ...[text shortened]... orrow but for this work I've taken on, stokin the star maker machinery behind the popular song🙂
    I'm in trang at the moment in the south, they've had a lot of flooding recently in the south... hugely abnormal amount of rain for the time of year. Blue skies now though. Just came from Bangkok after spending 10 days in Burma (Myanmar) which was interesting.

    Mumbai is still by far my favorite Asian city but I do like Bangkok, not a lot to do though considering the size of the place. The thing I dislike most about Thailand is the language barrier. It's an impossible language to learn for me... you must have picked up a bit though if you were living here?

    I have a hole in my head for languages, especially the tone level ones like Thai. I can count to ten, nung song see ha ho bet cow sip sipet and leo sigh, leo qua, Tali Baht cop, cop coon cop and that is about it. Itchy pie seems to be some kind of swear word, never learned what, they were too embarrassed to say🙂 I got into Laos kind of illegally, Americans were not allowed to go but we went a few times, give the border guard on the Thai side 5 bucks, he takes off his shoulder amulet, now he is a civilian, takes me across the Mekong on a boat, he gives the Lao guard 2 bucks, I give him my passport, which worried me a bit, but then wandered around Takek all day, come back at 5 and he gives me my passport, go on boat back to NKP. One time the boat stopped running and we were swirling around in the Mekong on our way to Viet territory but a Thai boat came to our rescue, me, my telock and 20 other passengers had to transfer from one boat to the other in a frothy boiling river but we all got onboard safely. A bit of an extra adventure but we made it safely across.
