    First two boys RESCUED from Tham Luang cave -

    BBC radio said they’d started with the weakest. Any one else hear this.
  3. There’s some very good posts on this topic and as my moniker suggests, I first came to Thailand in 1969. As some contributors have correctly stated, in my opinion, Thailand is a place where you can easily lose yourself if you are from a starched Western country. The girls (or boys), the party lifestyle and the friendliness of the Thai people can lead you to believe it never ends but when it does a deep loneliness may set it. From what I’ve seen when things go wrong, they can really go wrong, the money may runout, you’ve been two timed and are afraid to go home or you’ve burned your bridges. I doubt that anyone would committ suicide if they realised the effects your action has on your surviving family if you still have one and if you don’t, try not to cause too much collateral damage. See, it’s not really done by the sane. It has to be an act of the irrational desperados, surely? But on the surface of it and from the posts maybe Thailand is a danger zone?
