Thailand fascinates me and not for the reasons it fascinated David Carradine or Japanese sex tourists.
John Burdett has written three or four novels adapting the detective genre to modern Thailand. They are really good if you like detectives and crime stories.
I eat Pad Thai almost every day.
I would rather watch street food vendor videos on You Tube than anything on schlock American television.
The Thai music is so peaceful.
That picture blows me away and makes me want to go there.
