Postbox letter from Russell
I relocated to Vietnam to see if the grass was any greener over there. Whilst I was in Vietnam at the beginning I wrote an article saying what a breath of fresh air it was from the idiocy of Thailand. But after one year I came to realize the grass was not that green after all.

Language center rip-off

Is it the end of the 20-hour Thai culture course?
Postbox letter from Bangkok Phil
A letter was circulated by the PSTAT perhaps spelling the end for this controversial program.
