This is a section for posts on more “serious” stuff. Not that everything is going to be “I want to gouge my eyes out, this is so depressing,” but a place for more ruminative, less frivolous material. I can’t lie – it will probably still be heavy on the narcissism. I’ll be dealing with topics such as my experience with culture shock and transition, as well as those relating to Bangkok’s less appealing side, such as its rampant sex trade. My goal is to present a fuller picture of life in Bangkok, not just the funny bits.
