Amazing Thailand

Yeah, this place is amazing alright. If your one of those do-gooders that can’t see the wrong in anything and think everybody is a victim and deep down think everyone is nice and would not do you harm or lie to your face. Or, if you come from a country like mine England. Where people tell you to your face, how they see it and how it really is. Then best you don’t read on.

Those of us that have been here some years all know how this country has changed in the past 5 years. And most of us with balls would say it’s not for the best. You know the only reason we are here and put up with things is because our respective countries have been and still are struggling. If we could go home to a well-paid job and good prospects, those of us with any ounce of brains would.

Thai students don’t want to learn. The government does not want to really educate it’s growing population. How could that be possible in a system where you never fail an exam? It’s impossible to take this country serious. The school’s are more like activity centers, because that’s all they do, activity activity activity. And you know in Thailand, if it looks OK, it is OK. Yeah, it’s amazing alright. I’m amazed But Thailand’s good for a holiday - not for living.
