This is too DIE for!

Go to the Tourism Authority of Thailand site, and check out the "Be our guest" pop-up Flash ad. So slick the production value. So subtly twisted the English.

I had never seen that site before, or at least I don't think I had. Having lived in Japan twice I have seen and heard my fair share of Engrish though. Learning a new language can be a very humbling experience.

Thanks for the link, Hoopycat.

just a little head's up

mystery (my wife) is currently in law school (that's why we are in philly, god awful place) she's thinking about international law, so that maybe we can live in the netherlands or someplace like that someday. anyhow, at one of thier international law seminars, they specifically mentioned Thailand as having a rather Draconian justice system. You might want to look into that, so that you know the rules before you get there, and are ready for any suprises.

also, before you go, if you are going to set up any kind of newsletter, i'd love to get it. i'll email my address.

Hi Steffan,

Yes, for such a smiling, live-and-let-live, happy-go-lucky people the Thai's sure have come up with a brutal, authoritarian, government to wield the lash. Still, if I were a 19th Century Siamese subject, I think I would have preferred a home-grown pack of brutal hooligans to the iron-fist of a foriegn devil colonial governor, which is what all of Thailand's neighbors got.

No plans for a newsletter just now. Stay tuned to the KMO, MamaLara, and CREALM LiveJournal's for news of Clan O'Connor's Thailand adventure.
