Play Water In Street Happy Songkran. Since I’m protected by the Buddha, Saint Christopher, and Our Lady of Saigon, I have no fear and can’t resist jumping out in the middle of heavy traffic with all the kids throwing water for the Thai New Year. There’s a cute farang with his even cuter Thai boyfriend, and a happy ending from a horned devil. #Songkran #thailife #thainewyear #jimbozfairytalesfromafar #cupofjim #sliceofjoy #waterproofphone (at Jomtien Beach)
April 12, 2017 – Dongtan Gay Beach, Thailand – Oh My Buddha! It was so hot today. The weather report said 89 degrees Fahrenheit, but with the humidity factored in it felt like 100. Fortunately there was a breeze on the beach. Because it was so stinking hot, I snapped up a durian popsicle stick from one of the pushy, pertinacious peddlers. For anyone that knows durian, it is has a very strong, pungent odor. It is banned from most hotels and businesses. I’m guessing he had a hard time selling them because he was only asking 20 Thai baht. Normally ice cream goes for 40 or 60 on the beach. I just can’t resist a bargain no matter how putrid. It’s actually not that bad once you get used to it. It reminds me of bananas except much creamier and richer. And sweeter.
