      Hi Jezz, I wasn't meaning to pry into private lives, but when you referred to 'jungley', it piqued my interest.

      I recall the monsoon in Pakistan, where it rained in torrents, yet it was hot and humid. We had a place in Lahore, (lived in Rawalpindi), and I recall how beautiful it was up there! it was so green, we had horses, and we were so free and easy.

      I can have these memories of course because there seemed/seems to be no middle ground. One was either well off or very poor.

      Given what you used to do, you must have a vastly more simple life than before. It is all too easy to see such a life with rose coloured glasses as a purer life, but frequently it is simply hard graft.

      I hope that it is a life that you love though. I hope that I can get more peace of mind in mine.

      Worked as a project manager on a condomimium complex for 6 months far too dangerous the developer was not interested in health and safety and the poor workers knew no better..i am actually building a house i make sure they have decent scaffol ladders ppe..they actually think ime just an eccentric enlishman..
      I actually work in mexico now sites much safer but there is always a chance of kidnapping..or being in the wrong place at the wrong time..
      Thats the expat working life it seems

      Every thing there is wonder and superb. From culture to buildings and people to food,you will find the Thailand a complete land of entertainment and excitement.Food will make you spell bind and the beauty of the Thailand culture will make you fan.
      I think just to specify few spots would be a injustice with the country.
      Go and have fun by visiting the entire land of beauty and fun.
