    I accept that the tuk-tuks will park there but they will move if I need. When some monkey fuck parks across the drive that really really riles me.
    mate - put up a sign, PARKING - 200 Baht/hour

    Marmers...Lk is nothing about religion...just an opportunity for people to make a wish for the new year while being thankful to whoever for the rain during the past year...you unbelievers in Ayut have suffered because the powers-that-be forgot to turn off the tap...

    Actually it is sort of religious - it was a pre-Buddhist religous ceremony that survived into modern times because it's fun. Sort of like Halloween!

    So, what does a miserable old git say at Long Katoey when he has no interest in partaking of the 'festivities'?

    The miserable old gits stay home and press the remote.

    I turn into one of those when I get back from the 'festivities', if my state of mind allows me to find the remote...

    That's lucky, 'cos we spent the evening at home after a very pleasant meal at the local Korean BBQ shack.

    Had a quiet one this evening, just attending the local bonfire and following the monk and the crowd to the river to float our kratongs.

    They say if a couple float a krathong together they'll be soulmates for eternity. A crock of shit, no? Divorced her in April. About time to. LK no longer has any meaning.
