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 firstname.lastname@example.org I 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.
