Just had a great dinner at â€œThai Kitchen-Jontiemâ€ with a couple of friends â€“ Chris, visiting this last couple of weeks from Europe, and Khun Wut who works at X-Men Bar here in Jontiem.
And we were discussing the cost of going out (the dinner, the movie, the drinks, etc,) but here that cost is just a pittance from what we would have to spend if back in our home countries. On a retirement income itâ€s possible to do so here and not break the bank.
And if your like me, elderly, or should I say older (much older) it would be almost impossible to have anyone younger than 50 consider going out for dinner or an evening. I donâ€™t really relate to the geriatric crowd ( yesterday I couldnâ€™t spell it â€“ today I are one ), but prefer to be with a younger group. I also like to think I still have something to offer and enjoy helping or sharing my experiences in business and life with those who possibility could use some help. It all here in Thailand. Young or older are invited and sit at the same table â€“ all ages are respected â€“ but of course the oldest gets the check â€“ but here, thatâ€™s acceptable too. Going out on a date is possible and affordable â€“ what more could you ask for.
Chris is now on the plane, going home â€“ hope you had a great time here and look forward to seeing you next time you come to visit.
