    It's amazing how low hanging fruit can turn someone so high minded.

    Most of them haul-ass down Route 24 (you can score on route 24) and onward thru Korat.
    The days of getting stuck behind cane trucks are over - dual carriageway now.

    I don't want to know. Tom does seem to dine allright though.

    What he's digging into now I can't imagine.

    Well I can, and therein lies the problem.

    I used to live in Nong Khai about 8 years ago, right next to the river. Nice place, good promenade for walking and jogging.

    Now I've moved to a smaller town east of NK (I'm sure you can guess the name), which also has a promenade. I like Issan next to the river and decided to move here because an old friend from Canada also recently retired here.

    I guess it's true that most Westerners in town are old, retired and married to local women. I'm single, not retired and happily not married anymore.

    I'm settling into my new rented house that backs onto the Mekong (well, about 300 metres away from it now because it's just a dribble...). 3,000 baht rent a month with 2 bedrooms, huge living room, all in half a rai of land. I already had an erection (the erection of my ham radio antenna of course...).

    Saw some more weirdy foreigners in town yesterday. Do none of them wear long trousers/pants anymore? All nobbly knees and sandals. None of them seem to possess a decent pair of chinos. Nor do they have jackets or ties, (I am clearly an old-fashioned, eccentric Brit because I wear a light jacket when I'm around town, plus of course a black half-topper...)
    Groping women when you're old is fine - everyone thinks you're senile

    'ang on.

    I've worn nothing but shorts and no underkaks for around 5 years. Nothing wrong with it.

    is it that cold ?

    in eastern turkey , the old men used to get a bit vocal when you were in town wearing shorts that showed your knees - corrupting the local women who had never seen solid calves and muscled thighs before

    I always wear chinos after dark, just to avoid being bitten. People think me a bit stuck up because I usually wear a shirt with a collar too.
    You are not old fashioned or eccentric, just a civilised Englishman abroad.

    I don't get the Europeans that wear the pants or shorts (Not sure what they call them), that are below the knee about half calf. I mean whats the point. Wear shorts or wear pants but those things look really dorky. Its clearly a Euro style.

    I haven't seen a foreigner in the Lampang area in a long time. I met a nice Aus guy one day a few months back. He approached me and struck up a convo. I'd guess late 60's early 70's. Been the most normal westerner I have met in a lonnnng time. I suspect the more remote one lives here the more weird the westerners are. They moved out there for a reason.

    I'm with Simon. Whether I was retired or working I seldom ever wear shorts out and about unless riding my Mtn Bike, never ever wear tank tops and sandals are out. I wear Flip Flops occasionally around the house. When I go anywhere I usually always wear Levi's, clean shirt and athletic tennis shoes.

    Funny that...I see lots of Americans in calf length trousers.

    I have a Californian colleague with a house in Ayutthaya who teams them with socks and sandals.

    He is...umm...instantly recognisable.

    I never see Merkins wearing that attire. Ever. I never even see them for sale in department stores. Now I have seen Brits in the states wearing them.

    but why would you wear long pants in this climate ? and closed shoes ? are you worried about sunburn ?

    I wear the same here as I wear in FNQ , collared 100% cotton short sleve buttoned shirt , cotton shorts ( the tropicals style with a zip ) , cotton budgie smugglers and a pair of thongs ( flip flops for you weird cnuts )

    Aside from myself the only dodgy folks in my ville are a few locals.

    We have the touretts fella who makes the rounds daily waving his arms and swearing like a sailor.

    The drunken old auntie down the road is fun. She is the village flasher. Never a wai and a swadee from her. Make eye contact and up comes her blouse and a wiggle of her shoulders to get those saggy tits swinging.

    In general most of the farangs in the area are Swiss or German. Germans are for the most part tatooed scousers. Swiss generaly well mannered, well dressed gents.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Nice. A sharp dressed man. Think a mountain bike upgrade is in order.

    Are you a fully fluent Thai speaker?


    If not, you go months there being retired and not conversing with anyone (not including pidgin Thinglish small-talk with a few locals) but the wife?
