My Friend Paul was coming home in the early hours of Monday Morning on a Baht Bus and got held up at a Police Cordon. They were Breathalysing a Motorcyclist who blew into the Bag and was waved on. The second Motorcyclist was handed the same
Bag to blow into and was not so lucky. He was led away. This sounds crazy you can't reuse these Bags but this is Thailand,

A friend of my neighbor from Norway got done for drink driving. He got a 20.000b fine and lost his license for 6 months, It was his own fault Driving on the Thappraya Road at night, It's a Police hotspot and has been for years,

Popped into Friendship this morning and got stopped on the 3rd road by Police looking for Driving Licenses .
On the way back I was waiting at the traffic lights to turn right onto 3rd, A motorbike Taxi man pulled up next to me and warned me about the Police, I said do they stop you and he said they are not allowed to stop Taxi Men, is this the Taxi Mafia
we hear about?
I got stopped again going to Walking Street in the evening.

I think the legend of Pandora's Box may have originated in Pattaya. I stopped by Pandora's A-GoGo and saw several guys on the back benches desperately trying to stuff things back into Pandora's box.
Thailand may be the Land of Smiles but it certainly isn't paradise.
Foreigners are surely greeted by the proverbial smiles but these are often in anticipation of a good fleecing.
Be well informed, respect the rules, respect the girls and play the game with enthusiasm. Somehow the smiles then turn out to be real.
