But what about the racism and ageism?

Postbox letter from Jonathan

I know excellent teachers who because of their skin colour are not allowed in a school because "the parents want a white face" so actually I will amend my previous statement and include all the racist Thai parents out there.

Postbox letter from Mr Dee

Thai people are one of the most generous people in the world, and it is a fact and part of their culture. You can see it by how gift giving is always a part of any ceremony and any event.

Postbox letter from Dr John Smith
