Re: Night Market Get Together

The NMGT doesn't have 2 sides!A couple of the people have some resentments about this site,but it is their personal conflict!Many of us post on both sites as friendships and interests cross any conflicting positions! It does seem that most of the guys that exclusively post on Udonmap,very seldom att...

Re: Another fishing query

I watch the fishermen in Nong Khai fishing the Mekong everyday,I rarely see them catch anything!When I have seen them catch something,it is not very big.The same with the guys in the boats trying to net fish,rarely anything in the nets! :-s

That is, the government spends money to install counters showing the time you must wait...tick tock, tick tock. What benefit is that, except perhaps for pedestrians. The timers just seem to make you more l...
