June, 2013 — June, 2014
Following the big move over here, my first year and a half in Thailand was replete with both pleasant experiences and frustrating challenges. During that period, while maintaining a rather mundane diary, I only produced eleven, mostly humorous, postings. Rather skimpy output for someone who fancies himself a writer. However, purchasing a MacBook Air laptop in October of 2012 changed all that. Now I could use the wire-less network in my apartment for my internet work instead of having to trudge down the street to the cafe and squeeze myself in alongside a pair of shabby Russian tourists fumbling around trying to book hotel accom-modations. Blogging would take place in the privacy of my room, like a few other secret passions of mine.
Due to health troubles and some other distractions, I didn’t get around to launching my website on WordPress until late spring of 2013. In addition to gathering all my old blogs in one central location, I also saw how I could use this site to create a new weekly one that would cover my many escapades in a foreign country (something I bet no one had ever thought of doing before). Less parody, more real life. The nitty gritty.
