Actual rainfall for Udon

ongoing desperate attempts to dig the mush out of Huay Luang reservoir.. i suppose at the end of the day, the water table level is so low, even a half hearted wet season will not make a dent in it... i recall 10 years ago it would rain like crazy every night (in May) never mind bleedin July

Dog bite in Thailand - a word of Warning

I can`t recall how much it was but I do recall thinking it was alot. to the point where I considered not having the injections, but in the end I decided to bite the bullet and pay up. I don`t know the full story but the cost may have been partly why my colleague decided not go to the hospital. a dec...

Dog bite in Thailand - a word of Warning

Sorry, but the correct recommendation seems to be to get all the necessary vaccinations already BEFORE you get bitten! Especially as stuff like tetanus is not about dog bites but small skin scratches from daily life. I am pretty sure that many expats here had all vaccinations when they came here. M...

I guess he missed something!! absolutely correct... the statistics are absolutely necessary. I`m just saying the changes are so dramatic, you ...

Actual rainfall for Udon

this is the first year in 9 years of observation that the tree stumps are still visible above the water line in our local reservoir in September. normally - even these previous 3 years (2012,13,14) - the rainwater would have drained off the hills to at least a level that would cover the stumps

House Robbery, Ban Chiang

Savannakhet - New Non O Visa

just got back from Savannakhet with new Non O 1 year multi entry visa. Can confirm you can no longer get these in a single day. Its a definite overnighter. In 8.30am to 11am. Pick up the next day 2pm to 4.30pm. Its probably because this place is now getting quite busy. I was surprised how many there...
