is my first post for quite a while. Sorry. I
thought i'de let you know whats happening with current
dommestic affairs. I've settled in Koh samui (south of
Thailand). I live in a typical Thai style wooden house, with
every fruit tree imaginable in the garden. A fresh water
river runs at the bottom of the garden , and the water comes
from the mountain and the Namuang waterfall approx. 1km
Samui has alot to offer, 2million cocanuts exported to
Bangkok every month, along with many other kinds of fruit,
some of which I have never tasted befor. The weather is
generaly always above 28 degree celcius. November - Febuary
is the rian season and helps plant growth plus keeps to
temperature to a tollerable state. I live in what I call the
country side of samui so the evenings are pleasantly cool.
Working on many various types of physical projects at
the momment. I have 25 rai (approx 12 acres) of land in the
mountain that I want to develope, a bungalow to build with a
friend also in the mountain, on top of that I would like to
build some furniture and develope around my house.
Additionaly I have the hardware and a network to maintain on
a small but busy internet cafe. (free coffee supplied). Ive
installed Linux on two of the workstations and im trying to
convince the owner to switch over to linux power :)
I almost forgot! Every Sunday afternoon I teach english to
the local Thai children. For the older generation I have
plans to teach them basic computing (Linux I must strongly
advise). Hopefully this with generate enough funds to
purchase some machines to utilize in class for practical
teaching. This also means that I would be encouraged to stay
in Thailand on a long term period, which are my plans.
If you ever feel the urge to come and visit Thailand? Then
drop me an e-mail
have a second house, big enough for two people to live in. I
can arrange collection from the airport, and transport, and
snorkeling trips, and site seeing excursions, etc, etc.
Island hopping is a fantastic way to see thios side of
Thailand. You can visit the Island where part of the film
'The Baech' with Leonaro de Caprio was shot.
