for the final bit of this journey we found ourselves back in Thailand and i had promised her that i would take her to the famous red light city of pattaya. she was upset at me because i didn't want to take her there last time she came out but i agreed to take our parents on their visit. now personally i have a great time in pattaya for various reasons that i wont write about since this is a family orientated blog but i could never really understand peoples fascination with just going and looking at the goings on. if you weren't an active participant then what was the point of being there in the first place? i suppose there is a bit of a thrill witnessing such a seedy place but my experiences have always been much more up front and personal so i cant speak with an authority
what can i say about pattaya that i have not already said in numerous other posts? the girlie population was a bit low because it was the middle of the low season so a lot of the girls went home to visit their families but the ones that stayed behind were very vigorous and my sister had a lot of fun watching the girls try and drag me into the bars . its hard going to these places when you have a girlfriend whom you are trying to be faithful to. its like being on a very very very strict diet and then going to the best restaurant in the world to look at the menu. luckily IM was coming the next morning and i did not have a chance for my wandering eye to begin its travels.
my sister found the whole scene pretty interesting as we took in a few gogo bars and the surrounding scenery. i really had no interest in going to a pingpong/bannana show with my sister so i left that up to her to do on her own if she so pleased. some things are just not meant to be witnessed in the company of blood relatives and a Thai ping pong ball show is definitely one of these. it was one long day and night but the next morning we were on the bus to Bangkok and then a few hours after that i was putting my sister in a taxi on her way to the airport and back home
this trip has not gone nearly as peachy as i have written to be quite honest. i don't want to get mired down in the subject mostly because many of my readers are immediate family and its not a subject i want to fan the flames of. to keep it short and simple there were various misunderstanding about money throughout the trip and in the end i was left high and dry with no money left to last the 2 months that i had remaining before my work began again. unfortunately i have grown enraged at my sister because of the hardship that i have been forced to endure over the last few months. it is really too bad since we had so many years of silence between us and had finally buried the hatchet, resuming normal family relations now only to have it torn apart once again. regrettable or not, i cannot forgive her for what she has done......
so now that this trip has finally been properly documented i will be able to finally update what is new and exciting next time i get to writing the blog in the next week or two. to spoil the surprise a bit, nothing new is going on but i will go into detail about how nothing is new if you have the time to read my next post. until then........................
