I did that for months on end. Don't really want to ever do that again. 555 I found some Thai traits that I found tolerable not so after that long. Although, I did become part of the community to a certain extent. We rented a shop front and I got to know everyone around us. And the in-laws were close. Too close! 55supersub;316662 said:1st time I went to Thailand I went to visit a girls family in her home village in Ubon Rachathani. It was smack bang in the boonies - Buntharik I think. Went to a local market to get bits with the girl and I was the only farang there. Didn't even see another farang the entire time I was there.
