I find Bangkok's old neighborhoods surrounding Khao San Road much more pleasant than the backpackers' area itself. I see modest or traditional living in general that certainly is not poverty. Almost all of the easy-going locals in Bangkok's old sections have plenty of food, lodging, and proper clothing. They own varying levels of assets and are covered by free government health care programs. Thailand has been an open economy for over a century. Its people are familiar with the sights of westerners and feel no inferior to farang backpackers. If you wish to understand Thais, you have to first stop being obsessed with your material wealth. It cons you into feeling too important despite the fact that there actually are millions of Thais who are richer than average young tourists from the West.

Ditto (or amen??) on that coffee comment at the top of the page! :) And beautiful pics again! Thanx for your effort guys, really appreciate the updates and especially the photos. Keep well, the sun and surf is waiting for the both of ya (my Yankee accent kicking in) - oh, and me!

A scene from the movies?
You guys have the most beautiful pics! Love the ouc of Cathy walking in the river stream, kinda reminds me of Apocalypse Now (without the violence obviously!) Not that it was a good film. Anyhow... Think you guys must consider a feedback (almost like missions) where you invite mates over for a good meal (homecooked, obviously, also Vietnamese) and have a slideshow once you are back in good ol' SA - and for suggesting it I'm booking myself a seat, thank you very much! :)

Teachers
It would be a good idea to have some of the Military spouses come and teach ESL. Most should have sufficient background, having attended public school in the US, to teach English according to standards.
