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.

Today we had a work day at Zoe. The kids were at school so we sanded and repainted the playground equipment. It has not been done in over 13 years so it was in desperate need. We came back to our hotel and took quick showers and ...
... slow play. Respect, Simon. We stopped at a market on the way to pick up supplies, aka Thai Red Bulls for the group. I know I've mentioned them before, but I can't understate the raw, syrupy power of these diesel bad boys. This stuff gets in your veins like nitrous oxide in Fast and Furious. This stuff pumps you up like Bane on his super venom, and not even Bane from the GOOD Batman movies. I'm talking Joel Shumaker's Bane and Poison Ivy with George Clooney and his ...
... done it. We had the best lunch from a market where the locals go. The food was so cheap. We tried a dish with fried scallops and radish cake. It was so tasty. That night we ended up going to a rooftop bar in the town centre. We walked there with a group from our hostel. Had drinks, chats, laughs and played drinking card games too. The bar was really nice and chilled and you had to walk up stairs to get to the top and take your shoes off. It had a really nice ...
... public views as yoga. In the morning, we do a series of asanas, and in the evening, we go over them in more detail and learn the technicalities, benefits, and more. One of the poses we went over today was gomukhasana (cow face pose). This pose is really difficult for me on the left side. I have no idea why. The only other person who can't do it well has had rotator cuff issues. The teachers emphasize that all bodies are ...
... small child and deserts made for royalty - what more could we all want!? Last quick visit to the market to get a new gopro stick (£5 over here compared to £25 at home!), then all head back to enjoy our last night together as a group. Certainly going to be sad that Tash, Lee and me are going separate ways to the girls and Sam, but an amazing 3 weeks which I will ways have fond memories of. Hi 5 guys, that was ...
