    There goes the Neighborhood . . .

    "It used to be such a nice place until all these PI members started singing on." 555

    Yes, I am one of "those." I started PI back in July and posted a real time Trip Report that a few people enjoyed and I made a friend or two. I managed to stay away for five weeks after my first trip to Phuket and I haven't been back home since. I just spent four months living in Isaan, Loei to be exact and I have a new Thai family and a beautiful TG who makes me very happy when she is not driving me crazy. I have never felt more loved in my life. I was planning on sharing my experiences on PI now that I have returned to work at sea (oil exploration), but Alas, my beloved PI is gone. I hope to reconnect with old online friends and "meet" some new ones.

    Cheers,

    Cippy

    Welcome Cippy. I never realised you were planning 4 months living in Isaan! Do you plan to move there for good?
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    555 Didn't plan on it, life just happened. I will most likely stay in Loei for the meantime and explore LOS a bit. It's an easy life and there is a rapidly growing expat population there. Still small enough that we watch each other's back though. Luckily, I have a job that allows me to live where I want. If I eventually have a family I really don't want an Isaan education for my kids, which means an international school or back to the States. We'll see how it goes.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Speaking of an "old friend." I only picked Tamarind for a few days! I helped earn the family over 600 baht a day . . .

    Welcome Cippy, you have come to the right place ... many here with the same affliction ... 555

    I'll be interested to hear if your workmates notice a big change in you.

    Enjoy...
