So, I’m posting pics in two separate galleries. This one is for Thailand, where I visited first.
We stayed in Pattaya, which isn’t exactly known for its “family-friendly” atmosphere; prostitution is one of its main draws, and has been since it was used as an R+R site by the US Army during the 50s and 60s. And yet, if you managed to look “around” this aspect, the country was beautiful. For me, Pattaya encapsulated contrasts: it was wonderful, terrible, beautiful, disgusting, charming, repulsive, and utterly amazing. It was chaos that somehow worked beautifully. I could go on and on, but I’ll spare you and cut to the chase. Would I go back? Absolutely!
