Every Picture Tells a Story: Is there any Thailand left?

Concrete never sleeps in Thailand.  Leave a city for a while and when you return things will be different.  In some cases, very different.  Nowhere is that more apparent than the seaside resort town of Pattaya. After a half year stint in Bangkok, I returned to Fun City and promptly got lost.  Where the hell did those big dolphin sculptures bursting out of the middle of Sukhumvit come from?  And, “my God” … they actually finished that underpass … and I was driving through it!  It was clear to me that whomever is in charge of this Pattaya reformation understands the power of first impression.  Coming off the Motorway into

Midweek Rant: Overfeeding kids is child abuse. Period.

Today Thailand is faced with an almost out of control obesity epidemic.   Thai women were named the second fattest in Asia yesterday and evidence of a population eating themselves to death is everywhere.   On any given day hospitals are overflowing with people suffering from the inevitable result of bad eating habits – diabetes.   In the last 20 years in particular many have abandoned good diets of rice and vegetable for fast food and 7/11 ready meals laced with fat and gunk.   More disposable income means increasingly people are piling on the calories. Calories that don’t get burnt up because people are on Facebook all day long

Every Picture Tells a Story: Can you smell that?
