Land of Smiles in 2022

It’s Sunday morning and our trip to Thailand is coming to an end.

We braved the waters and made the best of a bad situation dealing with a family crisis that makes “Dallas” look like a school play.

The stay at home in Cha Am was relaxing, as was the drive into northeastern Esan country.

For sure the “pandemic” scare has changed many things that make the Thai people who they are. It has not however taken away their smiles.

Walking through the fresh markets, malls or along the beach the uncertainty is replaced by smiles.

I enjoy going into a 7 to buy a scaldingly hot cup of coffee and my favorite Potango or a Pepsi and an I cream bar, without breaking the bank.

In fact it seems that there is a 7-11 on almost every street corner. I believe there are around 20 such 7s along the main beach road in Cha Am alone.

Not to be left out are the Lotus’s, Big C Minis and Other popular stop and shop-type stores to get just about anything you could ever want or need.

Although it’s hard to see, but I suspect that under every facial covering is that infectious Thai smile.

Will I be coming back? Definitely!

My hope is that the world comes to its senses and focuses on living life to the fullest, not on what might happen. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
