This journal is a collection of experiences by my associates and myself (Mark Prado, MP). Unlike most foreigners, most of my time in Thailand has been spent far outside the usual foreigner areas, and I find that my experiences are quite different and thus of fairly unique interest to other farangs.
Actually, most of the stuff on this page is very old, stuff from the 1990s and early 2000s. I never did a blog, and always wrote things for a particular section of the website in a useful way.
Scroll down if you'd like to read some anecdotal experiences.
How I came to Thailand (MP)
Getting onto Thai TV (MP) - How you can start an acting career in Thailand, for small money but lots of fun!
Getting recruited into a male escort agency (MP) - Ranks as one of the most bizarre experiences I've had here.
Human Trafficking (MP) - Common to/from Thailand.
Nighttime leisure - G-rated:
LoSo concert, Thai rock - You can see Thai superstars at ordinary dinner and entertainment places, but at this one I met the band's groupies.
Carabao concert, Thai life song group, attended in Nakhon Chaisri (MP) -- coming soon
