Amazing the number of Islanders connected to or visiting Thailand this season. Just got off the phone with Rob Paterson who was there with his wife Robin before Christmas for three weeks. Eugene Sauvé from GrabbaJabba was there in January for five weeks. Peter Jansons from The Dunes is in and around Thailand (he’s in Bali right now) this winter. And I assume Dave Coffin is there too somewhere. The mercurial Gary Carroll is not in Thailand, but he’s certainly been there enough to know the lay of the land. And he tells me there’s a Island woman who’s living with the hill tribes north of Chiang Mai who we should have visited.
