Transformers In Bangkok

A large Crane Truck flipped over this week, which is not big news on its own, but it happened to flip next to an Air Force base with 4 full-sized fighter jets mounted at the front gate, creating an Optimus Prime vs the Decepticons-like photo-op.

Korat Ribs

Korat becomes more livable every day.  Last week, I found an Australian guy that makes baby back ribs - and delivers!!!


The Beautiful Game

There's no question that Football (soccer) is the world's most popular sport - outside of America. 

I follow "football" very casually.  When I first arrived in Thailand, I noticed that there were no televised US sports - primarily due to the the time difference, but also do to the dominant popularity of English Premier League Football.   Manchester United were the best at that time, so I adopted them as my "favorite" team.  Over the years, I have continued to follow the weekly scores and may watch the occasional match, but only if it happens to be playing at the pub or restaurant I'm at.  

Even though I may be surrounded by a hundred screaming fans, I, like most Americans, can't seem to get into it.  I think the reason is captured by the scores from an early February match day (forgot to post this, but better late than never).  Out of 10 teams playing, only 3 scored, and only 1 scored more than 1 goal.  Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz................

Seafood Under Construction

On our recent trip to Hua Hin, we visited a famous local seafood restaurant.   Everything surrounding the restaurant, which was not much more than a tin shack was under construction - you can see the barbed wire behind Nuch.


Food was great, though, and we'll be back when the work is done.
