    Meet at Le Meridian and then walk to Tanin market. Plenty of cheap, simple Thai dishes there. Fresh produce and everything else you might need while away from home.

    I'm going to call it an early night. I'll be going back to my place outside of town after dinner and then back into town Tuesday morning.

    ^ never would have guessed.

    I'll be travelling solo, but I wouldn't mind seeing your family again.

    I can pick you up if you want. My plan is to leave work at 4:00 mosey on into town and ride my bicycle around until 6:00. I can wait for you at the bus station and then drive my car into town together to meet up with BF; no problem, just call me before 4:30 if you are running late..

    Great day today and great choice of burger bars the night before thanks steveolevi.

    The Cambridge day really was worth it today. One of the speakers was Allen Davenport, who is the ASEAN consultant for Cambridge. He made the day. Interesting chats with Ramses and Steveolevi too.

    Again the day has renewed my thirst for development. Nottingham PGCEi anyone?

    the food was good. burger and juice for 140 thb, not bad at all


    BF is kissing his arse cause he came down and chatted with us at lunch.:celebrate: j/k of course - though he is quite personable.
    An interesting thought that came from him was that AEC 2015 is just like Y2K - everyone is saying it and no one knows exactly why. Much ado about nothing. but don't say that too loudly there are schools using AEC 2015 as a marketing gimmick :innocent:

    The free buffet lunch at the Imperial Mae Ping hotel was a nice touch too! well worth the price of admission.
