    Fixing my tyre turned out to be a three man operation. Here is Somchai # 1, he is the shit kicker who gets the good job of ripping the wheel of the Motor.

    Here is Somchai # 2. His job is to fill the tyre with Air so the leak can be found.

    Then it's back to Somchai # 1 who walks it over to the pox ridden water tank and locates the leak.

    The tyre is repaired so Somchai # 1 springs back into action and refits the tyre. Im in and out within 30 minutes, jobs done, good stuff. The boss wants 150 Baht but being a very generous bastard I slip him 200 for his quick and efficient job.

    So I head off to find a new Somchai. I find another Somchai and he told me my last Somchai was a massive shit bag because he did not repair the tyre correctly.

    That being he did not put a proper plug in the hole but merely used a bicycle patch to cover it.

    So this Somchai being super efficient does exactly the same thing but used a better grade of glue apparently.

    Look, at the end of the day ya just got to laugh this shit off simply because nothing will and can never change regards Somchai the complete and utter waste of space.

    All good innit.

    Love my Road trip, always good for a fookin great belly laugh.

    Yep, that's all you can do. The 3 Somchais had Somchais' Revenge written all over them, but still we hope it'll work out, and even give them a tip...

    I was pissed in the village and some old fella hobbling up the road with no shoes on so I gave him my birkenstock Sandles 50 a pair
    He sold them on the next table to some young fella for about 50b
    I was fuming when I sobered up
    Somchai had the crever ferang again
