  1. News: Re: Famous Thai Temple to Build Separate Toilets for Non-Chinese

    But those of us who remember outhouses, sears-roebuck catalogs, wells with bucket and one of those thingies to wind it up and down as well as having high expectations from our elders to keep clean...

    My Travel Story: Re: Revisiting Thailand (Nov-Dec 2014)

    They usually start cleaning here immediately, or even sooner! I think they watch until they see you slip the tip under a plate and head for it, but only after handing over the bill.

    I understand what you are saying trangam. If it is 20 baht instead of 10 for Thais, and I really want to see whatever it is, I will pay. If it's 200 baht rather than 100 for Thais, I probably won't....
