    ^ I was gonna write graphic above it, but it's a good reminder to be careful crossing those roads.

    This guy has got Thai driving habits and their psyche down to a tee and goes into great detail and nails why Thai roads are the World's deadliest....

    ^ Thai road safety (or rather lack of) is without doubt my biggest worry about raising a child here.

    Education and health are covered if you're willing to pay, but nothing can protect you from some of these drivers.

    Compared to Saudi, motoring in Thailand is relaxing.

    A lot of truth in there ... worthwhile clicking the link.


    To date, I've had no problems adapting to drive in Thailand.

    Cambodia however ...

    Coco braved the roads again to visit a place I'm very familiar with!

    She wasn't allowed in with no mask but was happy to be outside. Location No. 32... Where is Coco?

    Outside the Samsung Service Centre, Suranarai Road (road 205).

    Did you take a photo of the buildings next to it? There's some nice Chinese style decor going on there.

    ^ Yes, well done Nev... the green is in the bank.

    I've taken two phones here on two separate occasions, and both times they've been fixed for free under warranty (and the first time was completely my fault... but I lied a little).

    I really can't fault the place.

    To the left I seem to remember some Chinesey kind of stuff, but I didn't really pay it much attention. Maybe next time.

    I went in there once but for the life of me I can't remember what for.

    Fame's a little easier to achieve in Korat!


    We stopped off here for a quick photo and Coco got all wide-eyed and nervous.

    Why could that be? Location No. 33... Where is Coco?

    ^ Certainly is!

    Makes me wonder what kind of stuff Coco got up to while she was on the streets... all in the past now thankfully.

    Green owed!

    Surprising what dogs remember. I watched a soi dog near this bar I frequented before. He used to shit himself every time he saw a bin wagon.

    They must have beat him up one day. Or a few times.

    You can tell when she gets home she has a chat with Dan and gets a lecture on getting dressed up in women's knickers.

    Nah, not the municipal court. The Nakhon Ratchasima Provincial Court.

    ^ Oh... fuk'n hell... how embarrassing...

    You are perfectly correct Lom. My quiz as well... I should have known that.

    Sorry Dill, but that green that I owed you, I now owe to Lom instead!

    My missus got a 20,000 Baht fine at that court for drink driving, just after a new police chief took over in Korat about 11 years ago.

    Guess who paid the fine? That was back in our honeymoon period... I'd probably let her do a couple of years in jail if it happened again! Could do with a break.

    Anyway, sorry for the confusion guys... one more to get back on the horse.


    The railway passes right through Korat and there are several manned crossings.

    In fact a rare pleasure in Korat is to watch a large-breasted girl jiggle across the tracks on her motorbike.

    Coco took me to one such crossing today, but which road is crossing the train tracks? Location No. 34... Where is Coco?

    ^ Oh no... not again. All I can do is apologise Lom... it's falling apart tonight.

    I zoomed in to do a screen grab, and what was showing as Soi Bencharong changed its name to Pai Huatalay Road. I should have known better than to question you!

    Well done... another green owed!

    ^ It's embarrassing... I don't really approve of competitors using Google to answer the questions, but I have to use it myself!

    And I still balls it up.

    There was only two dual track crossings with the tracks being spaced so close to each other, google maps had a different view of the road after the crossing but Hotel Punjadara was in the right position.
