I wrote a review 4 days into my month long stay here.
When Nixon went to China in 197(0?), Henry Kissinger was at a cocktail reception and asked Chou en Lai his opinion of the impact of the 1789 French Revolution on world history. Chou's response? "It is too soon to tell."
I would have been wise to have heeded Chou's counsel before writing
There are two problems here. The first I noticed is that the place faces a nightclub complex that rocks out until 3 AM 7 days a week. There is also a hugely popular ladyboy revue across the street from the straight nightclub complex. I had to shut my windows to sleep and it was still pretty loud.
The second--and more ominous, is that I think I saw a middle aged Thai man with a very young (under 12 y/o) girl initiating things a middle aged man should not do with a child. I was on my balcony and saw this on the first floor patio three floors below me. It was dark, and I cannot say with absolute certainty she was that young. But she was very small.
The patio was accessed through the locked staff laundry room, and the only access was by hotel staff. I did not recognize the man, never saw him before or after. He saw me watching and they went inside.
As I said I cannot be absolutely certain that she was that young. But she was that small and could not possibly have been over 15.
So I was pretty creeped out and moved to the Royal Shilton Residence--500 baht a month cheaper, much quieter (so far). It is near the intersection of the Superhighway and Huay Keaw Road behind Wat Jed Yod. (4500 a month, 500 per night). It is a brand new structure, same cable package as Residence Loft, better hot water, 2/3 empty because it is not in tourist central and one would probably need a motorcycle to get around from here, although a 10 minute walk gets you to Huay Keaw Road where there are frequent songthaews.
I will wait a month before writing a review on the Shilton.

... over my stuff and the noise of all the insects and animals at night was v loud. i may as well have been in the middle of a jungle. a mosquito net around me was my only saving grace AND i really had to think twice before contemplating going to the loo in the night, as i had to walk across the dark farmyard to get to the insect infested toilet. strangely the other dread wearing, tatoo bearing fellow dorm girls never complained about anything which made me seem like a bit of a ...
... heard good things about the night bazaar we decided to try it out ourselves. There were so many restuarants, shops and bars to choose from. JP chose the restaurant tonight - he opted for indian and I went for a butter chicken curry. I specifically asked for non spicy but it turned out to be a blow your brains out hot dish. Unimpressed we left to check out more of the markets. En-route home we picked up supplies for the trek before going to bed ready for the next few days. (Dreading it!) ...
... in other South East Asian countries such as Singapore, Burma and parts of India. It's basically a 3 day water fight and the entire country is in on it. If you go outside, you WILL get wet. I was in Krabi during Songkran in 2010 and i think i described it as the best fun and the most i've laughed ever, in a single day. This would also be a true description of the 3 days i partook in this festival here in Chiang Mai. You know in zombie movies, when the zombies ...
Today we woke up early and started our day at about 6:15 AM. We had breakfast which consisted of heart-shaped eggs, rice, noodles, yogurt and granola. They made us espresso which was very good. We are headed to the Zoe home. It was neat to see that the have a huge cardinal, are raising pigs and chickens and are becoming self-sustaining. The children were all at schools so we could not meet ...
... After we finished eating, we enjoyed the amazingly specific Thai dances.
The end of the night was bittersweet for me because I said farewell to my family for a while. They came to the college, and actually waited for me in my room prior to my return from the restaurant. We enjoyed chatting for a while, but since it was quite late they didn’t stay long. I am going to miss having them around, but I loved to experience my first days in Thailand with ...
