WHERE AM I ??

I retired in July, 2007, and moved 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 17,000 westerners choose to
live in Chiang Mai.  Westerners are called
"Farangs".  This is the same as being a
"Haole" in  Hawaii.

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.

This is the serviced apartment complex where
I live .  There are 4 other men, from Hawaii,
living in this same complex.

It is next to the Lotus Pang Hotel (where I  
stayed on previous trips), which is part of the
second largest Shopping Center and Cinema
complex in Thailand.  It is about a 3-5 minute
walk to the  Bank; Post Office ; Hospital:
Cinema and Shopping Center (includes:  
Supermarket Bowling Alley; Ice Skating Rink;
Over 40 Karaoke Rooms; etc.)

Info
______________________________________
Squat toilets are used throughout Asia and
Europe



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.  Buy from the Factory
and save.  Even after paying
shipping and customs, Vitamins end
up being 50% cheaper
