        Terrific! No rush by the way. We'll be there in March 2014. And, you seem like the resident expert on Thailand and I believe you also have a child. Meaning you can likely provide good direction on what will work well for us.

        By the way, I'm doing my first Meetup arranged on MP here in Chicago. I'm going to meet a few of the character I have interacted with. Should be fun!

      I am just home from 2 weeks in Europe - flew home on an old, old LOT 767. I was upfront and its wasnt great, I could only imagine how bad it was in the back.

      I love Thailand :-) This time I will be in BKK, but doing a day trip to Chachoengsao. My next BKK trips are end of May, end of June, October and December.

        Fine, great ... thank you for asking. How is going with you? Back to Bangkok, eh?

        We just returned from Bangkok 3 weeks ago.

      As and when we meet, I will listen with interest to your memories and comparison between Italy and Thailand.

      Khun Kalboz,
      I hope you enjoy the little translations.
      Make sure you practice though so that if we ever find ourselves in Karaoke bar
      we shall make it a duet...I'll be the belated Lucio Dalla (the short and ugly one)

      Ma come fanno i marinai (Lucio Dalla and Francesco De Gregori)

      Ma dove vanno i marinai
      con le loro giubbe bianche
      sempre in cerca di una rissa o di un bazar.

      But where do the sailors go
      with their white coats
      always looking for a fight or a bazaar.

      with their tired faces
      always looking for a young girl to kiss

      Ma cosa fanno i marinai
      quando arrivano nel porto
      vanno a prendersi l'amore dentro al bar

      But what do sailors do
      When they arrive at a port
      they go and get love inside a bar

      qualcuno è vivo per fortuna
      qualcuno è morto
      c'è una vedova da andare a visitar.

      thankfully someone is alive
      someone is dead
      there’s a widow to go and visit.

      Ma come fanno i marinai
      a riconoscere le stelle
      sempre uguali sempre quelle
      all'Equatore e al Polo Nord

      But how do the sailors know
      how to recognize the stars
      always the same, always those
      at the Equator and at the North Pole

      ma come fanno i marinai
      a baciarsi tra di loro
      a rimanere veri uomini però.

      But how do the sailors manage
      to kiss each other
      and stay real men though.

      Intorno al mondo senza amore
      come un pacco postale
      senza nessuno che gli chiede come va

      Around the world without love
      Like a mailed parcel
      without anyone asking them how it goes

      col cuore appresso a una donna
      una donna senza cuore
      chissà se ci pensano ancora, chissà.

      with their heart after to a woman
      a heartless woman
      who knows if they still think about her, who knows

      Ma dove vanno i marinai
      mascalzoni imprudenti
      con la vita nei calzoni
      col destino in mezzo ai denti
      sotto la luna puttana e il cielo che sorride

      But where do the sailors go
      imprudent scoundrels
      with their life in their trousers
      with their destiny held between their teeth
      under that bitch of a Moon and the sky which smiles

      con questa noia che li uccide
      addormentati sopra un ponte

      the boredom that kills them
      asleep over a bridge

      in fondo a malincuore
      sognano un ritorno smaltiscono un liquore
      affaticati dalla vita piena di zanzare

      basically reluctantly
      they dream of returning while disposing of a drink
      weary from a life full of mosquitoes

      che cosa gliene frega
      di trovarsi in mezzo al mare

      They don’t give a damn
      of being in the middle of the sea

      a un mare che più passa il tempo
      e più non sa di niente
      su questa rotta inconcludente
      da Genova a New York

      a sea, which, while more time passes by
      increasingly means nothing
      on this inconclusive route
      from Genoa to New York

      ma come fanno i marinai
      a fare a meno della gente
      e rimanere veri uomini però.

      But how do the sailors manage
      not to need other people
      and stay real men though

      Ti amo, forte, debole compagna
      che qualche volta impara e a volte insegna.
      I love you, strong, weak companion
      who sometimes learn and sometimes teaches.

      Mi sono innamorato? Sì, un po'.
      Rincoglionito? Non dico no.
      Per te son tutte un po' squallide.
      La gelosia non è lecita.
      Am I in love? Yes, a little.
      Stoned? I don't say no.
      For you they are all a little bleak.
      Jealousy is not permitted.

      Non c'è una gomma ancor che non si buchi.
      Il mastice sei tu, mia vecchia amica.
      There isn’t a tyre which does not puncture.
      The mastic is you, my old friend.

      La pezza sono io, ma che vergogna.
      Che importa, tocca a te, avanti, sogna.
      I am the patch, but what a shame.
      Who cares, it's up to you, forward, dream.

      ma il mio mestiere è vivere la vita
      che sia di tutti i giorni o sconosciuta;
      but my job is to live life
      which is everyday or unknown;

      ti odio forte, debole compagna
      che poche volte impara e troppo insegna.

      who a few times learns and too many times teaches.

      D'accordo, fa come vuoi I miei consigli mai.
      Mi arrendo fa come vuoi
      ci ritroviamo come al solito poi
      Okay, do as you wish, my advice never.
      I give up do as you wish
      We’ll find each other as usual then

      Ma che disastro, io mi maledico
      ho scelto te - una donna - per amico,
      But what disaster, I curse myself
      For choosing you-a woman as a friend,
