Pattaya Thailand, September 2008.
I spent two weeks in Pattaya Thailand in September of 2008.
Mostly I just relaxed and watched the world go by.
These are the pictures from that trip.

Novels set in Thailand:
John Burdett has written a series of three books with a Bangkok arhat detective
named Sonchai Jitpleecheep as the central character. I read one these on the flight over and one on the way back. I have ordered the third.
Note: arhat = a Buddhist saint, one who has been liberated from cyclic existence
