Thailand is, in a word, irresistible.
But be ready for the culture shock and to find out the things you need to know.
Welcome to this captivating and enthralling land. Contradiction, controversy, confusion, frustration, weird language, cultural barriers and mystery will haunt you. When you eventually get over the early shocks, which may actually take years, and you realise that you cannot fix a ‘dysfunctional’ nation without a modicum of help from above you can begin your bumpy journey.
I present my views objectively although, in setting out the ‘pros and cons’ of life in and the mysteries of Thailand, some of my arguments may be viewed as polemic which ‘was absolutely intentional’. I believe there should be, and usually is, a balance to be found in every society and that most cultures and religions may have syncretic elements to their beliefs, to a greater or lesser degree and we are all ostensibly the same if we look behind the mask.
If you decide to read any or all of the books I hope you enjoy them and I would really appreciate it if you posted a review. Your honest opinion is valued.
Now I really must get moving and finish my first novel.
