Still doesn’t feel welcome here



I just watched Pattaya Mail on TV, a big Norwegian bringing in free wheelchairs/beds for disabled people, which was commendable.  PSC, a charitable organisation, Jesters, bars, and many more, here and throughout the country, all contributing to helping unfortunate Thai people.

Yet after 10 years, I have never felt welcome here, from the government, where many years ago one of its elected officials made a comment that ‘all Farang are rich’ to immigration, and so on.

I thought when the British educated PM took over, we would see some small changes, but no. We are wanted only for our spending, and I feel that will never change
