  1. People with third world background know and care about safety ? ?
  2. Price, price and price; Japan, South Korea and HongKong are expensive when compared to Thailand. That is the also the reason I spend much time in Chiangmai.
  3. Zero dollar tours were a big problem in Taiwan and Hong kong.
  4. I like Chiang mai because I can't afford any other place.
  5. Slight dislocation of the spinal cord because the tank is too small for the fish to swim properly.
  6. "2,200-yuan-per-head package." it could be one of those all inclusive ones. Super cheap package always causes trouble because the guide has to sell extra items to be able to make a living.
  7. I always consider travel insurance as a necessary cost of a vacation.
  8. Typical third world country.
  9. I will wait a year or two before I visit.
  10. I copied the below from This is what my pharmacology textbook says about penicillins. It includes the cephalosporins with the penicillins (I'm paraphrasing): First-Generation penicillin G and penicillin V have a narrow spectrum of clinical use (this means there are only a few organisms that they are able to successfully treat with this class of penicillin) good for common gram-positive bacteria that cause ear and throat infections, venereal diseases of gonorrhea and syphilis, and staph infections due to Staphylococcus aureus that cause abscesses, endocarditis and pneumonia a very high number of the drugs in this group are resistant to organisms that produce penicillinase [Penicillinase is an enzyme that some bacteria are capable of producing. This enzyme is also called a beta-lactamase and it inactivates some of the penicillins.] Second-Generation ampicillin, amoxicillin have an extended or broad spectrum of clinical use work equally as well as penicillin G class plus effective against Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis and Haemophilus influenzae which are associated with urinary, respiratory and ear infections all drugs in this class can be taken orally as they are well-absorbed from the GI tract. Patients will get higher plasma levels of amoxicillin than with ampicillin, so amoxicillin is more frequently ordered ampicillin can also be given IM or IV not very effective against penicillinase-producing organisms Third-Generation carbenicillin and ticarcillin carbenicillin can be given orally; ticarcillin is given IM or IV broader spectrum of use than the second-generation penicillins used in the treatment of serious urinary, respiratory and bacteremic infections due to gram-negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Proteus vulgaris not resistant to penicillinase-producing organisms Fourth-Generation mezlocillin sodium, piperacillin more potent than the other three classes given IM or IV have less sodium salt in them than the other penicillins so if a patient has congestive heart failure and needs restricted sodium intake this may be a reason for the doctor choosing one of these penicillins for them used for serious infections due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Bacteroides fragilis in combination with other antibiotics not resistant to penicillinase-producing organisms.
  11. A third world person cares about not hitting a cat ? ?
  12. Both Cambodia and Vietnam have been dirt poor for so many years due to war and UN economic embargo. I was in HCMC two years ago and they tried to charge me three times the local price. I believe the Cambodians will try to do the same to me. I like Thailand because "most of the time" Thais only charge me 30% more.
  13. "Medical care in Thailand is at least as good as in Germany " ? ? An average citizen in Germany uses 5th generation antibiotic, an average citizen in Thailand use ?? generation antibiotic. Four years ago in Shanghai , I got a case of pharyngitis, I went to an average neiborhood clinic and received 2nd generation antibiotic. It didn't work at all after 4 days, so I went to a big hospital clinic and paid 5 times as much and received 4th generation antibiotic. Fourth generation antibiotic started to work after just 24 hours.
  14. Chains on the feet of an elephant keeps an elephant behaving like a zombie for life. See youtube's / elephantnews to see how lively a free elephant can be.
  15. Language problem is the only reason.
