This scary thing in Thailand: Electricity
We all have seen the cables hanging on poles along the street, and it looks like a total chaos for us, and dangerous as well. Surprisingly the danger doesn't really comes from this chaos, since there is order on the poles: Top level is high voltage, lower l...

Lagos, Victoria Island, Blue Hotel...
I enter in the shower and immediately notice a connection box. In the shower...
The box is open, broken on a corner ! Moreover, the yellow and green cable is disconnected.

I take carefully my shower. And rush to the reception to mention it.

"Sir, don't worry, it's normal, it's for the water heater. This is why cleaners stop it."
"ok, but why is the earth disconnected ?"
"Sir, if we put it, the shower will shock you"

After a quick inspection, I discovered they respected the standard of nigerian electrician: the earth was connected to the pipe of the water borehole...

It's getting a bit fishy...
I am not really sure if they just sell the fish or also dry the fish next to the street.

Tong Tang has now only three legs and needs a home 

One of my neighbors takes care of stray dogs around Ekkamai, and one dog needs a home now since he lost one of his front legs. The hospital in Ekkamai had to cut the front left leg off, but it seems to heal well. The problem is that Tong Tangs future is not so bright: He may end up in a shelter with hundreds of other dogs. 

If you are interested, please contact Khun Chompoo, 0876983098, or mookaow@yahoo.com

This is not only the cutest coffee in town, it is also a meeting place for the young Lao filmmaker scene. Homemade excellent cakes, free Wifi, good lunch. If you want to get in touch with open minded Lao people, spend time there. Eat the Sukijakisoup.

Popular with some NGOS, UN-staff etc. but for me totally overrated. Nothing special, and the branch in downtown is noisy and dusty.
