Doubtful that you will find similar results in Europe. Most Europeans were totally against the Iraq invasion - and have remained adamantly opposed to it...

have to agree with that, but I don't know if Fox really wants to give news from around the world. I don't think that the market for international news exists in America. Americans seem to be interested only in America and what might - in the news editors opinions - at some point in time impact Amer...

Yeah - in that respect - not any different than Faux News.

At least CNN shows stuff from around the world - unlike Faux.

Check the web site for the Vietnam Embassy. They will tell you what you need and how you can go about doing it. For my initial Thai Visa a few years ago, all I had to do was mail my passport to the Thai Consulate... When looking at getting a China Visa, found out that I either had to do it in person...

Yes - Faux is gone from Udon Cable.

Don't see where CNN and Faux really have that much in common. At least on CNN there is a lot more news being reported rather than political posturing with a definite far right leaning.

TTT also has an office just down from the Tourist Police Station. From the city center, go to the stop light just past the police station and turn left.

Typically the buses run about once every 10 to 15 minutes. Bus travel on some routes is not advisable during the week between 3:30 and 4:00. Buses are often hard to find for about a half an hour before that because the majority of the buses line up outside the schools waiting for students to be rele...

As a second thought - to add to the passport issue: Yes, a business can demand or insist that you leave your passport as a guarantee for payment, providing that they have received the appropriate authorization from your Embassy.

I fully agree that carrying the passport on a regular basis is a bit of an inconvenience and can be a major inconvenience. I do not physically carry my passport with me - but I can produce it within a matter of 5 minutes or less here in Udon. That would be sufficient in most cases unless the officer...
