    Worth all the angst then. One down, your reward is waiting for you up north.

    I'm in Seattle having a surgical revision to my hip replacement on Monday. I probably won't be able to travel back to Thailand until around the beginning of August. I'm fully vaccinated with Moderna but I will still have to endure some kind of quarantine which I'm definitely not looking forward to.

    Down to single digits today. We have a friend who did 14 days with three little kids, what a saint she must be. Made the mistake of not having a Thai phone when we got here. The wife is able to speak with family and friends via LINE. Her brother lives close to our hotel and has dropped off a cooler full of fresh fruit for us. The bananas are getting ripe to quick, will probably have three today. The hotel has only given us watermelon everyday. Our plans were made for the 7 day quarantine in which we would spend time here with family and then drive to Chiang Mai with her brother. Now we must leave the hotel and go directly to the airport or face another 14 day quarantine in Chiang Mai.

    We were in the original 7 day too. The Hotel told the War Department that if we tested negative on our 3rd covid test tomarrow they would release us before noon Sunday the 23rd. They originally told use the 24th.

    That's great runker! All down hill!

    Does your hotel allowed Grab Food deliveries at your hotel? If they do , downloads the App. A lot of great food in Bangkok, we pigged out.

    Good for you, We just did our seven days a couple of weeks ago, and the last two days were like the last Yard, but it went quick
    Enjoy the rest, and good luck.

    Well I am beginning my plight to the US and of course a subsequent return. I went to immigration today to get my re entry stamp. That took about 5 minutes as the immigration office was empty. My wife and I just finished our online forms to the Thai Embassy in LA. All was accepted. We will also have to do the Covid test prior to flying. We are not flying until the middle of July so lots can change as this all is quite fluid. Currently in California if landing at SFO they require a 10 day self quarantine which is no problem. We will stay in the states for 2 months as my mother was recently diagnosed with stage 2/3 pancreatic cancer and my oldest daughter is getting married. Weird times.

    Immediately upon landing we will get round one of either Pfizer or Moderna vaccination. CVS is a walk in program now, no waiting. All my family and friends are fully vaccinated so that makes life a little easier. Normally we plan on some travel while in the states but we will not be doing an awful lot of that.

    At this juncture returning requirements for September are unknown so I am not even going to predict what they will be. As we get closer to returning we will start that planning.

    Thanks CarlE. Its life. At 80+ we can't live forever.

    I want to go back and spend a few months and have some fun with her and of course my Pops. A Lot will be changing soon.


    On a travel back note, Just got my $100K USD Covid policy to show that I am covered for a year.

    Today is the last full day, then I am free not to have a drink in a bar!

    They have told us we can leave as early as Midnite tonight. The War Department has her Buri Ram ride set to arrive at 8:30 AM tomarrow morning. They will drop me off at the Hilton. Sure hope the Executive Lounge has alcohol.

    Sorry to hear about your Mom, at any age it cant be easy, I know it was not for me, when my mom passed in her Eighties.
    As you said concerning your return, things are fluid and conditions could change at any moment, but they are predicting the elimination of quarantine my October 1st. Europe just opened to vaccinated Americans with no quarantine, I am sure if successful it will be emulated by others including Thailand who depends on tourism. Also the covid insurance might not be required by the time you return (if I underused correctly you are not returning until the fall).
    Good luck with your trip . My Daughter is visiting friends near Los Angeles, and just had a video call with her a few minutes ago. Weather is great this time of the year.

    Most places are selling again in cups. British/Irish bars are always a safe choice.

    It's not as bad as it sounds. When I entered Chiang Mai direct from a dark red Bkk they did not check anything, just asked you to scan a link that takes you to the CM-Chana website and fill in your details.

    Most of the new infections are in the prison system. The lockdown has done its job.

    1,000 test positive in city camp

    Indian var
    iant found at Laksi building site

    https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/2119647/1-000-test-positive-in-city-camp

    24 Covid fatalities, 3,052 new cases


    PUBLISHED : 22 MAY 2021 AT 08:32
    The Public Health Ministry on Saturday reported 29 new Covid-19 fatalities, bringing the toll to 759, and 3,052 new cases, raising the total to 126,118.
    Over the previous 24 hours there were 2,447 infections detected in the general public and 605 in prisons.

    The Laksi camp is 4 kilometers from my house and some of the workers are working less than a kilometer from my house working on new housing for a muban. I have had to change where I jog to keep from seeing and passing the trucks that bus them in....

    Are you an alcoholic?

    Be careful with drinking booze clandestinely out of cups in the belief no-one will know. The practice has been widespread in the past during Buddhist observance days when alcohol consumption is restricted but here in Pattaya the police announced through the various media that farang under the recent COVID embargo should not be tempted to breach the ban otherwise they will face stiff penalties and....." please, don't risk it, we know you are drinking alcohol in those cups ".

    The police are facing tough times like everyone else and hitting on gormless sappy tourists can be a welcome bonus.

    if you really believe the government stats that it is only 3000 cases a day then you are not only an idiot but a nitwit, a simpleton and a moron too.
