I've lived in Bangkok since 1983. I came here back in 1974 after I secretly married my Thai sweet heart right out of college but it took me 9 years of struggling to get accepted before I could come back. I'm a retired writer now. I just got my first book "Thai Lies" published on Amazon last week. Before that I was a gemstone dealer in Bangkok. ...The book?.... Secretly married to his Thai girlfriend right out of college, an expat's nine year struggle for acceptance. The journey bounces between the states and Europe and Cambodia and all over Thailand. It's the only travel guide of the country you will ever enjoy reading with stop offs in some secluded diving coves near Malaysia. The only foreigner crazy enough to train and fight muay Thai boxing in the 70's. Just don't forget the sunscreen if you're around the pool. It's over 500 pages. Out on Amazon January 1, 2013. And yeah, I'm still around, living the Peter Pan fantasy. So, I'm really looking forward to hearing how y'all made it over here, what you're doing to get by, what exciting places you've been, what crazy predicaments you've been in, funny stories so I'll feel better knowing I wasn't the only one who screwed up. All that good stuff.
