It saddens me to see what is happening in Thailand right now. As some of you know, I lived there for 2 years. It was an amazing time and I made many friends there that I still continue to talk with. I lived right in the heart of Bangkok for a year and a half and spent the last 6 mths I was there in Pattaya, Thailand.
Please keep these people in your prayers with everything they are going through right now.
I had said before I was going to post photos from the places I lived while I was there. When I first got there, I was living in a little condo, what we refer to as an efficiency. Actually I think it would be closer to looking like a motel room. There was no kitchen, just one open space with a bed, table, armoire (they don't have closets), and a vanity. The door there is the bathroom. I didn't have anything but my suitcase with clothes, so I had to go buy sheets and this poster for over my bed to give the room some color and life. Those are pillow shams I am using as curtains. It's nothing fancy, but it did the job. The condo came furnished.
I also lived in a tiny townhouse with a house mate there. Here is what my room looked like.
Notice I chose the all white bedding and white curtains like I have now, but it was very hard to keep clean there. I had to wash my laundry by hand.
This was the view outside the window. I loved walking across the street from my home and ordering breakfast, lunch or dinner anytime I felt like it. A meal cost about 50 cents at the time. This was in 2002.
I miss Thailand dearly and I hope to one day get to go back. God bless Thailand.
