At the risk of there being too many questions thrown your way ippy, where you living?

amazing food out here. Also amazing supermarkets. Ive got a waitrose! You really could live here without too much in the way of cravings. Which is a pity because i was kinda hoping id not get fatter than i already am :'(

As for the tummy issues, no doubt, been rolling the dice on street food since i got here. It was bound to get me eventually :)

its not a trip to Thailand unless you get a dose of the Bangkok-trots!!

I'm really digging the food since moving to Sapporo.....the ramen up here is fantastic! Soup curry.....phoaaarrr and I've already mentioned the Lamb BBQ. Unfortunately my trousers seem to have shrunk a little :o

as it turns out, i have a job. As ever, ive deliberately gone hermit. Im signing the contract tomorrow. Pay sucks, but its going to be in range of the beach and the beach isnt a tourist hot spot so should be a nice adventure. Its Trat province. Pay is 30-32,000 baht. Theres also mountains to the north of the region. Oh and did i mention? Its on the border of cambodia! Whee! im about as far from Phnom Penh as Bangkok so if im bored of thailand, i can just nip across to cambodia instead :)

Very cool.

Lots of demand for sexy Scot lads over near the border of Thailand/Cambodia? ;)
If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.
