  1. Reminds me of the spoiled kid who, when losing, takes his ball and goes home.
  2. I found, from experience, that if you clench the knife carefully in your right hand, blade facing out, and growl a little that no one will take your plate until you actually finish.

  4. I didn't realize covid only comes out at night, after 8pm.
  5. You'll keep us updated then on your investment choices.......
  6. I used to have two drinks a night. One for me, one for my brother who lives far away. A few months ago I started having only having his drink, the wife made me quit drinking.
  7. Used to go to Honduras a lot and guns were everywhere. Check guns before a pub, a shopping center, grocery store, everywhere
  8. Good narrative, thanks!! Reminds me of road trips I took with ex wife's sister and husband (Korean).
  9. Because people, not just Americans, are morons.
  10. You would probably have to fend off the hotel staff. Elevators, etc, are all limited and everything goes by the staff and we know how attentive they all are!!
  11. For anyone interested, or may need to go through it. Day 7 in quarantine at Grande Centere Point Sukhumvit 55. When I first arrived my floor was full at meal times with the plastic bags outside most every door. Now only about 3-4 doors have the bags. Not sure if that means vacancies available but for what it's worth. The rooms have no balcony but are nicely done with a hot pot and cooler. No microwave or refrigerator though. There is an ice bucket but since we can't leave the rooms not sure why. Quite a few menu choices, especially Japanese style meals. Food has been quite good and you can also order off the room service menu for a discounted price. Not a huge menu but some items such as pizza and hamburgers not on the quarantine menu. I had my covid test day 3 with results given day 4. Now I can, with a reservation, go out to the deck area around the pool. They said 30-45 minutes a day . Cleaning of the rooms also started day four and they come every other day. We can leave the room, again for the pool area, while they clean, maybe 20-30 minutes so you can actually get fresh air twice on cleaning days. Pool area is big enough to walk some laps if desired and plenty of chairs, and lounges, smoking is allowed. Meals arrive in a plastic bag, plastic utensils and plastic containers, outside your room. They ring your doorbell to let you know. I had some laundry done yesterday, one day turnaround. There have been some families when I get my yard time each day so those quarantining with families it is available. Haven't seen any pets. There was no mention about being able to go outside after the covid test results so if you test negative just ask them. Communications is mainly over line and response time has been very good. The room has some international channels and netflix. I was having problems with netflix, called, and someone was up very quickly to fix it. There are smoking rooms but, again, no balconies and can not open the windows. The pool, and gym, are offlimits. No family in the area but if you have some (or friends I imagine) they can bring you dried food snacks. Inspection of all items is to be done. There is a bench placed by a window that I have noticed people talking through. Probably to friends/relatives that we can not visit face to face. Internet is good and, so far, reliable All in all if you have to be quarantined it's a decent place
  12. Mekong I have a "O" visa based on retirement but it was the married to a Thai that got me back in. Paul, I had booked 4 flights, all cancelled as the date came closer and the Thai government extended the ban. I would imagine if the ban is extended those flights you see will be cancelled also unfortunately!! I had to give a reason for an urgent return to Thailand. My wife was going to join me in the US in March but cancelled as covid expanded. I said my urgent return was to help my wife. In addition to all household duties we take care of her Mom and she needed help doing it.
