A rude awakening this morning at 05:00 as Jai's mum wakes us up to tell us that the gas has finished.  Thank you - just what I wanted to know in the middle of the night !!
Into Phon Thong later this morning to open some bank accounts.  We both have accounts with a bank in Chiangmai but the Thai banking system has been established to rob you at every opportunity.  Every time we use the bank here, even though it is our bank, we have to pay a 'commission' charge for their services.  This even extends to making a deposit in your own account.  To stop this b*ll*cks we are both going to open local accounts as well.  After discussing this with the teller as Jai opens her account I decide that with the charges for opening a new account and paying for a new ATM card etc it will be just as cheap to keep paying the commission on the existing account and dont bother.  Jessie James never had it this good !!
