So happy to go back ...

Seven months and no update at all ... and one and only reason for this : not a lot of interesting things to tell about.

Like before, I get in touch with Tam every week or more, and sent some money to him like before... Everything seems to be like before. In fact I just hope we will stick again together and I think we will. I have understood how much I miss him and he has understood how easily I could leave him.

From what he said me, he has been working for a while as a waiter in a resort near his home, he has broken his motorcycle and lost his former phone number ... Apart from this everything is OK and he had no loss from the floods in Phrae province where he lives (he could have lied to me about this and could have asked me for money but he didn't, that's probably why I trust him).

We had a big problem when I sent him some money for New Year and his birthday. I wrote 25000 THB on the transfer order and the young bank clerk wrote 25000 euros... I signed without checking and some days after got a phone call from the bank about the bad situation of my account.... Tam could have left for ever with the 1.250.000 THB he had been credited unexpectedly, and what could I have done ? But he didn't ; he even went especially to Pattaya (where he still has his account) to help correct the mistake. Finally I got most of my money back (at least the difference between 25000 EUR and 25000 THB), and was so happy I sent some more. Of course 25.000 EUR is not a big deal for some of you but for me it REALLY is.

Anyway we are due to meet again next Friday. Although I did not really wish to go in July, the winter was so cold in Europe, the work so hard, and I have been so afraid during five or six days to lose in the same time him and 24 500 EUR, that I made my mind to book a three-week holiday.

We will go to the South for about one week : flight from Bangkok to Hat Yai and then coming back to BKK via Songkhla, Nakhon Si Thammarat beaches and Prajuap or Hua Hin. After this, one or two days in BKK (with the pilgrimage to one of the sleazy joints in Soi Anuman Ratchathon), and then one week in Pattaya. No reservation at all except the Air Asia flight, I just hope the weather will be nice. Preparing this holiday was at least a great help to bear these cold boring working days.
