Differences Between Thailand & the West

I could probably fill a few books with the contrast between the two. Religion, education, food and on and on and on. But to be honest I can’t get past the obvious at the moment.




Koh Larn Island

Thus ends todays lesson.

    Ok, I understand the reason for this post, but really, you have to admit that you are being a bit silly.

    Snow does not usually fall in Hawaii. And although it has fallen in Florida in the past, it’s rare.

      Catherine,Unfortunately I don’t live in either Florida or Hawaii. Actually Hawaii gets snow a few times a year if you are in the right place:


      And it’s quite easy for you to point fingers about being silly when you are there and I am here…fortunately I’ll be there in 22 days…unfortunately I’ll be much sillier by then.

    I wrote, ‘Snow does not usually fall in Hawaii.’

    And really, you didn’t state exactly where you are, you stated America ;-)

    And yes, I am here. It’s my choice and I’m loving it.

    You can lump Japan into the “America” category.

    One big difference is the opportunities we are born with in the west that are nonexistent for many Thais.

    Check out my friends blog:
    Bangkok Escort, A Thai Girls Diary.

    It’s good to be reminded that not all of us were born relatively lucky.
