Towering chedis, huge Buddhas, spire-like prangs, rubble piles, and scorched walls- the only remaining evidence of the vast empire once housed in Ayutthaya. Thailand has gone through its share of capitals – from ancient Sukhottai, to Thonburi, to modern-day Bangkok; but, the most impressive and vast is Ayutthaya, more commonly known as Siam, trading center […]

It took a long time to get this video finished and uploaded, but I think you’ll enjoy seeing what our Christmas Day was like. I’d suggest never agreeing to dress up like Santa in Thailand.

M16s & Super Soakers: Rioting at Songkran?

Friday April 9th was a happy day at St. Francis Xavier school. Only morning classes were held and the school gathered to usher in the Songkran celebration with a water fight in the afternoon. I spent most of the day hiding out in the office with a friend and colleague so as to avoid getting […]

read the full post from this day here “In 1997 Thailand, especially Bangkok, was hit hard by the Asian Financial Crisis. Much like the bursting of the housing bubble in the States that inspired this website, the Thai Baht collapsed in 1997 due to a serious overextension of real estate. During the earlier years of […]
