in Bangkok and it is an absolute shit hole - nice people, but:
underage prostitutes, massage parlour owners as government
candidates - corrupt
police, dirty streets
and ghetos everywhere,motorbikes driven on the pavement where you walk, incredible poverty,knocking shops which
have flashing neon lights
and are the size of a Las vegas
hotel, samurai swords for sale by the street, knives for sale in toy shops, no rear seatbelts, 3 traffic
related deaths every hour, the world's worst drivers who ignore traffic lights
and lanes, the world's worst traffic
jams, crap busses that take ages to arrive and are overcrowded, tiny underground system, disgusting smell from the polution, a complete arsehole as the prime minister
(Thaksin Shinawatra)-sanctioned southern Muslims b eing packedinto trucks like pigs so that 100+ died as a result of being
suffocated, no ambulances, boat loads of stray dogs roaming the streets
, huge divots
in the pavement, market stalls that converge on to the pavement so you can't walk properly.
OPEN YOUR EYES.
