Udon Thani to Chiang mai

That's what I was afraid of. It's bad enough that the flight doesn't get their until after 9 pm, but the chance of being cancelled really sucks. Thanks for the input.

Udon Thani to Chiang mai

Has anyone gone to Chiang Mai from Udon Thani using Nok Air? Are they reliable, i.e. cancel flights? I had read several months ago that if you access their websight at a certain time you get a cheaper rate. Is that still going on? Thanks.

um server down?

Fisrt time I have been able to log into this site for several days now. My wife, who lives in the village, called me saying that she has not had internet service for about a week now. Is anyone else having problems? I am from the US.

Re: kip to USD exchange rate 1970

Laos had a currency reform in 1979, so I doubt you will be able to find anything prior to that.

Re: From Ugly to Just Plain American

The views of the original author that is; I still believe Mr. Rodrigez's is way out of line considering the time frame he is referring too and the reasons for Americans being so humble these days.

Re: From Ugly to Just Plain American

Well now that changes things. I was under the impression that Mr. Gregory Rodriguez was the author of this titled manuscript. So what you are saying that the titled piece originated in the UK? I still don't agree with Mr. Rodriguez's assessment of the time frame that Americans became humbled. Thank ...

Re: From Ugly to Just Plain American

It seem to me that this author was referring to 30 years ago, which would be approximately 1980. If we are referring to the 50's and 60's, or earlier, then are we talking about first or second generation immigrants from Europe and other parts of the world who migrated to the States that the author i...

Re: From Ugly to Just Plain American

Maybe I am misreading his article, but what I read into it that apparently he believes that "Americans" have been humbled due to the declining value of the dollar, which I find to have no merit. Diversity was once the backbone of the USA, but that same diversity is what is tearing this country apart...

Re: From Ugly to Just Plain American

I would like too say I am impressed, but I'm not. Notice Spain is the only country that he refers to as being similiar to America. Why do you that is? You see, I don't believe wealth defines a person, as Mr. Rodriguez claims. In reality, a weak dollar would mean the middle class would be the ones st...

Re: From Ugly to Just Plain American

Ni inferiority complex here. I started reading these threads when I first starting coming to Udon Thani several years ago. It seems that there are many individuals who start a thread and turns it into "where you are from" bashing. NOBODY on these threads are from here. Everone has an opinion, and I ...

Re: From Ugly to Just Plain American

Again, I doubt if Gregory Rodriguez would be able to pass off as being American in any country. And I don't believe any American feels the need to "fit in" with anyone. The funny thing is pretty much everyone on this site is a foreigner in another country and they are still stereotyping other cultur...

Re: From Ugly to Just Plain American

And by looking at the author of the posted article, grodriguez, I doubt if he would stand out as an American.

Re: From Ugly to Just Plain American

Are you serious? I've never worn a baseball cap in my life except when I played ball. I can spot a European a mile away with their tank top, flip flops, shorts and loud mouth. I believe you are being a little arrogant with the comment that Americans are trying to fit in with you.
