T minus 1 week for me.
Daughter flying LHR to DOH then we fly together DOH to BKK. Happy to have missed the Songkhran madness but a long list of projects to work through while I'm back.

My teenage Thai (half) daughter chose the UK as a more preferable place to spend this month. I think she saved an entire years allowance to make it an interesting shopping experience.

My teenage Thai (half) son preferred to remain at home on the condition that his personal 30 odd cu foot refrigerator was well stocked with copious amounts of chocolate, ice cream, drinks etc and an on demand home delivery pizza service was retained. Really I can't imagine what a teenage boy could do shut in his room all day with all that comfort food and a 100Mbps internet connection. Oh, er, maybe...

Very interesting.
I heard from a contact about places where they stashed tons of kit. Containers buried out on the airfield at Vung Tau plus others. But given when that was it's likely all very dispersed by now anyway.
Some of the stuff is still very usable if properly restored. A bit like a nice 50's or 60's car in some ways.
I would be well interested in sourcing more of this stuff :) Maybe need to pop over and sweet talk a few coffee shop owners.

If they would just hurry up and get on with the new airport project there so I can maybe get a consulting contract for a couple of years that would be even better, heh heh!
