  1. How about toss all the Russian nationals out of America if they retaliate for getting Trump in as president. If the Russians are not dual citizens and they are on a tourist visa, expel them.
  2. So much for the called for protocol of acting like the guest of Thailand. Driver of the boat made a great decision to dock the boat so they could get off.
  3. Maybe it has to do with that there are quite a few Muslims here in Thailand. I assume many were born here and they are Thai. The Muslim woman in the US was born there, but the lady who was complaining didn't consider her a US citizen. Other than that, I don't see a connection?
  4. Trump says China could have hacked Democratic emails

    No, how about Trump paid for hacking by Russians and Putin organized like the British says. Tired of hearing all Trump's lies. Either resign or impeach the SOB. The world doesn't need more dictators and that's all Trump is interested in along with his lies.
  5. If there's enough money in it one of Trump's sons would be the star. After all they do about anything for a quick buck as long as it in the millions.
  6. Warning When Paying With A 1000 THB Bill

    I've been in and out of Thailand for over 2 years and I have never had a problem, but I do watch it. If you are buying liquor maybe they think you won't notice? Only a theory. I don't drink most of the time is why I'm theorizing about the liquor vs. cheating.
  7. I think you can trust what Putin says as much as you can trust Trump. 555555555 Both sides lie, but Putin is a very good liar and I remember recently that a whole fleet of Russian ships passed right by UK (they could have gone on the other side not right down the English Channel) and on a regular basis Russian jets now buzz close to many NATO countries borders and confront NATO jets at a close and dangerous distance. That's a warning!!! Actions speak louder then words when it comes to Putin.
  8. Maybe I'm reading too much news latelybut seems like there are many Russian people that are violent. Seems like the culture is geared toward violence. What do you want when there's a dictator that hijacked their country and terrorizes its neighbor countries with possible invasions and goes around the world and does the same thing with its airpower. All this violence builds on itself to a dangerous resolution.
  9. Appreciate everyones comments. I assumed the fruits & vegetables were not as bad as USA but now I know I'm wrong and they are probably worse, especially since organic can't be trusted either. Disappointed :-(
  10. US-Russia relations plummet further over Syria, Ukraine

    Putin was lying about stopping the violence there. He wanted to wipe out all the opposition. He's not interested in replacing the dictator in Syria and never was. It was a ploy to put of US support and give Russia more time to use their bombs.
  11. Personally I work to stay fit and grow as a person and learn as much about health as I can. Staying young takes work but its all about your life philosophy. Part of the reason for being in SE Asia is to learn about different cultures and to have fun. Life can be a drag only if you let it.
  12. I just did that about 30 days ago in Siem Reap. My guest house I was at did it for $55.00 us total for a 60 day visa. I trust the guest house or I wouldn't have done it. Had no problem, but it took 6 days. I could have rushed it for more money. Normal time is about 7 days or a rush I think is 5 days. They run it down to PP.
  13. I've used these motorbike taxis a few times. If I ask how much when they are in a group they always talk to each other and then I find the price is double what Thai's pay. I've changed my tactics to asking lone riders for a ride and how much. I end up paying the Thai price when I do this. They love to stay in groups and are not very nice when in a group. Group of motorbike taxi ask then if I grabbed a car taxi. In Phuket its worse. I want to give them the finger but I'm in their country and I don't need the trouble, but it doesn't change the way I feel about them.
  14. I've heard from a few hotel managers and they said the Chinese are very loud. They feel like they can't do anything about it, but they are disgusted. One in Cambodia and one in Bangkok. I overheard the hotel staff, but said nothing. I came here with an open mind but so far I think many of the Chinese come here and don't give a damn about anyone but themselves. They won't move when you try and walk down the sidewalk and they will just push you aside if they feel like it. Rude and thats just the way it is!
  15. Hotel requires 3000 Baht security deposit

    My first hotel experience they asked for 1000 baht deposit. I thought this was normal but came to find out most do not ask for a deposit. Since then I have not run across it and from now on I would just say no and find another hotel.
