Sorry to have been down for so long â€“ Blog was hacked. Not sure who did it – one intruder was from China and a couple from the US, but now itâ€™s been fixed for a while. At first I thought it was just a database problem but in further investigation found several corrupted/hacked files and several un-authorized logins. I reset and updated the security software and hope this will stop future problems.
Here are some shots of my new condo in Chiang Mai – Big kitchen area, great living room space and bedroom large enough to have a King size bed and my new exercise Elliptical machine. These show everything except I didnâ€™t have the fish tank separation stand for the living room done at the time of the photos. Now with the elliptical I donâ€™t have to go for morning walks â€“ great for the rainy season and when the burning haze starts next May. Now to get a new car.
There is a lot more noise than my old place in Pattaya, but I will try to get used to it â€“ I have a clause in my lease that I can move if it gets too bad â€“ Iâ€™m hoping that it wonâ€™t be the case. What is nice is that I am within walking distance of the Kad Saun Kaew and Maya Shopping Centers and centrally located for everything else making it easy to catch a songtaw to go anywhere in the city.. The condo is 73 km2 so lots of space to set up another photo studio for model shots â€“ just need to build the lighting boxes so I can roll them out of the way when not needed â€“ next project.
Going to start taking new photos of the area and retrace some old standard sites â€“ but still settling in and slow to get a lot done â€“ maybe thatâ€™s just old age setting in too.
