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.

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

GOD=DOG backwards (MP) - Neighbors in province ask my deceased dog in grave for money

Island and beachside travel (various) -- coming soon

In-land travel (various) -- coming soon

(Isaan, Lao, Khmer, NW, Isthmus, Central)

Adults-only, age 21+ - Naughttime leisure
