Lawrence what and interesting and informative story.

I never will get my head round the lending of money in Thailand!

Only two weeks ago a young lad borrowed 300 Baht from Duen (actually my money), he's in her class at community college, now I know we won't get it back, but I love to hear her excuses for him if I ask when the loan is being repaid.

If he had actually asked me I think you can probably work out the answer I would have given.


Thanks for the comment, Mike.
I can guess what your answer would be, but probably you would not be asked (as I am not). But a straight no is truly unacceptable, ways have to be found around it. And so much depends on who, how much, in what circumstances, what your relationship is, etc etc. Too much for a mere foreigner to learn. (I take it you won't mind me using that f word.)

Hairy Thai

Wow that was odd. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn't appear. Grrrr... well I'm not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say great blog!
