    Hello, From Bangkok. SA Paid Off Today!!

    Well, here we are, day 2 in Bangkok.

    Mrs. GB and I checked out the weekend market. It has to be seen to be believed. Thirty five acres and over 8000 stalls inside and outside with everything imaginable under the sun for sale. Chatuchak Market in Bangkok - Bangkok Weekend Market

    My SA was on yellow, not concerned for our personal safety as they had a no weapons sign up at the gate.

    I was concerned about so many bodies in close proximity invading our personal spaces and it turns out my concern was warranted.

    I thought I felt something and turned quickly as a result. Sure enough, a pants pocket had been unzipped, but the contents were still there. The only thing they would have gotten was the key card to my hotel which would have been useless to them as it did not identify the room number and everything of value is locked in the safe anyway.

    Mrs GB sometimes thinks I'm paranoid, but this may give her something to think about. She now understands why I wear a money belt when we travel and keep anything on my person that's valuable in an side zippered or velcroed pocket.

    Enough about that. Another couple of days here, then it's off the the beaches of Southern Thailand for some serious R&R.

    Enjoy yourselves everyone and I'll be checking in occasionally.

    Was stationed in Korat back in 1974-75, one of my favorite countries. We had a dive club on base and on weekends we would charter a bus and head to Pattaya beach to go diving, it was like diving in a huge aquarium absolutely beautiful. You picked a fantastic destination, enjoy.

    SA never sleeps...and when we are unable to dress as we wish, it moves closer to the conscious
    we have to be a little more on the ball two fold--we are also in a place strange to us and the
    movement and actions of people, much like the food--has an element of difference.

    i keep my wallet in my front pocket, always have.
    during a family visit to Boston a group of us were at Quincy Hall (2 levels of lots of ethnic food)
    when i felt a light touch to my back pocket. i turned quickly and locked eyes with a tallish dude who, as i shouted 'picked pocket'
    ran through the crowd; disappeared in heartbeat. unfortunately with my cousins wallet also.

    i try to avoid crowds, but be prepared and extra alert if you gotta go.

    Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine
