How To Avoid Getting Ripped Off At The ATM

Post by yoursTruly » 10 Oct 2012 15:37

Probably woudn't happen in dear old Bang Saphan, but for us travelers, it's good to know. I saw many phony card slots warnings tacked to the ATM machines in Eastern Europe.

New York Times: How Taksin rules from afar.

Post by yoursTruly » 13 Feb 2013 04:16

Officially, his sister, Yingluck Shinawatra, is the prime minister (he nominated her for the job in 2011). But from his homes in Dubai and London, from the gold mines he owns in Africa and during regular visits to nearby Asian countries, Mr. Thaksin, 63, has harnessed the Internet and mobile technology to create one of the most unusual ways of governing a country.

Bang Saphan is growing up quickly. It brings back sentimental memories of summer nights in Boston, and gunshots late at night in the alley behind my apartment.
