Will the real Prado stand up?


Dear Hillary,

I see that there has been a crackdown recently about copy goods – shirts, CD’s and watches and the like.  Pictures of them being burnt in the street and all.  Why is this?  Everyone knows that you go to Asia to buy real bargains.  I always bring back a sack of watches and all the latest movies on DVD and some footy shirts for the blokes.  What’s wrong with this?  If I can’t get the stuff in Thailand any more, do you know where I can get them?  I like Thailand, but I have to look at what I can take back to sell, to pay for the trip.

Dear Copy Cat,

Sorry about your holiday expenses business, but most countries are now closing those loopholes.  Mr. Prado and Columbia Pictures have more clout than the consumers.  However, all things are possible in Thailand – go to the local markets and try there!
