WHERE AM I ??

I retired in July, 2007, and moved from
Hawaii to Thailand (Land of Smiles) in
August.  I live in Chiang Mai.   It is the  largest
city in Northern Thailand (hill country).  The
city itself is very charming, with a moat and
city walls still standing around the old part of
the city.  It has its own distinct culture,
including language, cuisine, music and
clothing.  There are several Universities and
Colleges here.  Because of its beauty and
size, and the absence of the hussle and
bussle of Bangkok, over 40,000 Expats  
choose to live in Chiang Mai.  Westerners
are called "Farangs".  This is the same as
being a "Haole" in  Hawaii.

Chiang Mai

See the white retectangle box on the wall.  
That's my water heater.  It has coils inside.  
Just turn it on, and "instant" hot water.  When I
finish my shower, I turn it off.  Saves on
electricity.  Don't need a big water heater to
constantly keep the water hot
I should have had one of these in Hawaii.  I
could have put one in the kitchen also.

Hawaii, living in this same complex.

at
Chang Klan Residence (bought Condo)

Huay Kaew is next to the Lotus Pang Hotel
(where I  stayed on previous trips), which is part
of a large Shopping Center and Hotel complex.  It
is about a 3-5 minute walk to the  Bank; Post

For a humorous, yet indepth look at how to use
this asian commodity.  I have had to use this on
three occasions.  I was fortunate, on all three
occasions, to have a door with a nice doorknob
(instead of a latch).  I was able to hold onto the
doorknob to do my thing.  Just a note:  All major
hotels, shopping malls and department stores
have western style toilets as do many Thai
homes now.  However, if you're traveling outside
the city you can expect to squat.  Hint - always
carry toilet paper with you.

SAFETY ? (NON-EXISTENT)

This is a common site around Thailand.  Four (4)
on a Motorcycle.  And, it is not unusual to see
Five (5) on a cycle.    Unfortunately, Motorcycle
accidents are the number one cause of traffic
deaths in Thailand

Cost of Vitamins in Thailand are ridiculous.
Currently, Puritan Pride cannot ship to
Thailand Due to new Customs law
  
I now get my Vitamins from
iHerb  
I focus on the
