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.

... for our Thai massages! When we went to the primary care clinic we made appointments at their massage center and I have anxiously been awaking it since then. We did give each other Thai massages but now it was my chance to get a real one before going home! It surely lived up to my expectations. It was a relaxing and serene atmosphere with beautiful Thai décor. The authentic experience for sure. We changed into pants and shirts and made our way ...
... wow! She knows so many different styles of massages, facial and body treatments, and other spa techniques...! I need to pick her brain and get some advice. This lady is 45 and looks like she is in her early 30s. I then helped Jaa save the CV in PDF and email to the potential employer. She was forever grateful and gave me a motorcycle ride into the village, so that I could buy a floss. We looked around and asked around, and apparently, there's no floss in ...
... onto the umbrellas at the end. They had hundreds of beautiful fans with vibrant colors hanging in the show room. They also had lots of other artifacts, like fans, journals, tapestries, etc. with handprinted designs and patterns. I got an elephant hand painted on my phone case (pictured), which I love. It only cost about a dollar. Everything is much cheaper here, and often a higher quality product. My buddies were so helpful in helping me pick ...
... the street, so we purchased 5 small lanterns and walked to the temple to light them. When we made our through the busy streets to the temple a man told us only large lanterns were allowed, so we purchased two more lanterns. It was a very fun and unique experience I will never forget. One of my favorite parts was that the monks at the temple helped all of us set off our lanterns.
As we left the temple we found ourselves immersed in 1mph foot traffic filled with ...
... out at 1 pm in Chiang Mai, because the temperature and humidity are crushing. I walked for 45 minutes which, combined with my jet lag, set me on my very special Amine grumpy mood. I finally found one of the red cabs to take me to Doi Suthep. At the beginning, he tried to sell me his 'special package' to show me Doi Suthep and the surroundings which I refused. He literally stopped the cab 3 times to try to convince me I was missing on a ...
