  1. In Chiang Rai we find Boric Accid in the shop where you buy stuff to maintain your swimmingpool.
  2. No, I think 99% of the burning in the mountains are from the corn plantations.
  3. John invited his mother over for dinner one evening. During the meal, she couldn’t help but notice how attractive his roommate Judy was. She had been suspicious of a relationship between her son and his roommate for quite some time, but this only made her more curious. She watched the two of them interact over the course of the evening and began to wonder whether there was more between John and Judy than met the eye. Realizing only too well what his mother was thinking, John said, "I can see your wheels turning Mom, and I know what you’re thinking. Rest assured: Judy and I are strictly room-mates." A few days later, Judy went to John and said, "You know the beautiful silver gravy ladle? Well, ever since your mother came to dinner I can’t seem to find it. You don’t think she would have taken it, do you?" "I doubt it, but I’ll write her a letter just to be sure," replied John. John then sat down and wrote his mother the following letter: Dear Mom, while I’m not saying you "did" take a gravy ladle from my house, and I’m not saying you "didn’t" take a gravy ladle, the fact remains that ever since you were here for dinner one has been missing. Love, Your son. Several days later, John received a reply from his mother, which read: Dear John, While I am not saying you "do" sleep with Judy, and I’m not saying you "don’t" sleep with her, the fact remains that she would have found the gravy ladle by now if she were sleeping in her own bed. Love, Mom.
  4. Picking mushrooms = Illegal logging ! MUSHROOM-PICKING COUPLE’S PRISON TERM REDUCED TO 5 YEARS (if you don't own a Ferrari)
  5. Phil Petersen passed away April 15. May you rest in peace.
  6. If you look for girlie bars etc you better go to Phuket, Pattaya and BKK. But if you are more interested in Culture, interesting roads with beautiful views, meeting nice people etc Chiang Rai is a good choice. See more in http://mkcrtour.com/
  7. If you rent a car one day you can cover Doi Mae Salong, Doi Tung Mae Fah Luang Garden and Golden Triangle in one day. The other days you can take a taxi to Baan Dam (Black Village), White Temple or Blue Temple and some other places close to the city. You find more information with photos and maps here: http://mkcrtour.com/ There are many interesting places in and around Chiang Rai.
  8. Lucky mike, here you can find a lot of info about Chiang Rai, what to see, what to do, where to eat and much more. http://mkcrtour.com/article/tn_sights Chiang Rai is a great place!
  9. I was to BKK 10 days ago, landed in Don Muang. As the real "Cheap Charlie" I took the A1-bus to Mo Chit, 30 baht. Then Sky Train to Nana, 42 baht. I was probably at my embassy 20 minutes before compared to taking a taxi all the way for 500-1000 baht. Going back home I used the same transport .
  10. Hi Lucky mike, Best and easiest is to google "real estate chiang rai" and you will get at least 5 websites that have houses for rent or sale. Welcome to Chiang Rai!
