About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Great Indochina Loop. The early days.

Sawatee Karp from Thailand!

Long-tail boat ride through the canals of Bangkok.

Feeding catfish in the canal.

Wat Po temple, Bangkok

Reclining Buddha

Heinz! It's everywhere!
Thai tuk tuk.
Overnight train, Bangkok to Chiang Mai.

My private coach. Not bad sleeping except for the bumps and jolts (and the lights being on all night).

Wat Phra That Doi Sutep temple. Mark Schroeder, it's 306 steps to the entrance.

Our gang. I'm the lone American. We have some Aussies, Brits, Canadians, a Dutch guy, an Irish guy and a couple Trinidad-Tobagoans.
