A Thought About The Common Thai Fold

Roo Ted

Recommended Posts

I'm sitting here in my very comfortable accommodation up on Pratumnak hill.


I'm on the second floor. I have a nice balcony at the rear of the apartment overlooking temporary digs for Thai construction workers and their families.


It's night. The rain is pissing down. Thunder, lighting, complete deluge.


These workers live in a system of shacks with rickety frames and bits of corrugated iron on dirt floors. Whole families manage to exist under these conditions.


Earlier today, looking down from the balcony, when it was fine, the families seemed to co-exist nicely. In fact I thought they looked happier than many falangs I know. In particular, their children seemed very happy and well cared for.


Now I see what the rain is doing to their community. Poor bastards. The incessant rain is making their lives bloody miserable. All their places are flooded or leaking massively.


I think these workers get about 200^ baht per day.


Tomorrow they will get up and make the best of it and carry on.


Tomorrow many falangs will complain about life in Thailand.


Just an observation.
