Rats - it's really very open of you to make that statement. I'm sure that you are not the only one and maybe something will come out of that. Some of us in Thailand are not in the right position or lucky enough to find a circle of affinity and it IS more difficult being abroad as we are.

(The 'Golfers' seem to be the best placed bunch IMO.)

Good luck. I hope things look up soon.  :)

Sorry, only joking. I'm actually very optimistic about the new season. Can't wait for it to start.

Ratsima, when you get back and if you fancy a chat over coffee or beer, I am not far from you I think - Homeland 3?

That's a very kind offer and I thank you for it.

But, it kind of misses the point, which is that there's really no place to go in Korat to meet up with people. I know there are klatches who coffee together at The Mall. And, the golfers and SwatCat enthusiasts seem to have cultivated affinity groups. But, the rest of us are really left out.

As I've mentioned, I lived on Saipan for 26 years; a place where it was impossible to not have friends. I worked. I sailed. I did scuba diving. I did the Hash. I ran competitively. I had a TV show. I had a high profile job. I was awash with friends. I was never lonely. It was marvelous.

And then I come here and experience the kind of isolation and loneliness that I thought only existed in depressing novels.

I have come to hate the place and the isolation that it imposes on those of us who are shy and introverted.

I should have never left Saipan.
