I met George and Lenore English who did this last week. I looked at the front page of the Bangkok Post and Jimmy Carter was then putting a brick in....... and turned to the funnies.
Then I was having a cup of coffee with a guest at breakfast ........ and they had just been there! They had built Home No.17.
They were working on a project in Chiang Mai doing just this - Habitat for Humanity. It was lovely to meet someone who took part in this project and discover a little more about that photograph in the Bangkok Post.
Congratulations to you all, now if I can fix the leak in the bathroom ceiling.........
The admission fee for this building is 50 baht each. A ticket for admission to Phra Prang Sam Yot, Vichayen House and Kraison Siharat Hall is only 150 baht each.
Well it seems to have worked - the severed head of an ancient Buddah statue was found deposited at a bus station..... why was this done? Does this mean that the robbers will not die in 7 days?

As a place to visit there are a great many temples to visit and there are a number scattered throughout Thailand.
This is a visit to Wat Chalong in Phuket.
There are a number of different ways to get about in Bangkok but the BTS Sky Train is without a doubt the simplest way. Cape House Hotel is 2 minutes from Chit Lom station and they first visited Siam Paragon; a very glamorous air-conditioned shopping mall (read expensive).
After this they visited the adjoining Siam Centre that can be best described as 4 floors of fun with a plethora of shops – Jemma fell in love with her new clothes and trainers! - please click here for some photographs of shops.
We walked through all the markets back to Cape House; but thought that next time the pushchair would stay at home, as it was not easy to negotiate all the obstacles. We had dinner at the Italian Restaurant, Italian Bistro No.43 and then slept soundly in their one bedroom suite.
The next day was an early start and they went to Safari World – and there were animals galore, swimming polar bears, lazy lions, noisy parrots, boxing orangutans (Jemma’s favourite). a Safari Park and much more! - click here for our photographs.
The next day was a real Shopping Adventure – Chatuchak – taking took the BTS from Chit Lom to Mo Chit.
We are already thinking of their next visit to Bangkok - but it was nice to come back to our little piece of paradise – Cape Panwa.
