When the airplane is truly at the end of its life in the US, all the worthwhile parts are stripped out and they are torn apart for the metal, and recycled.
In Thailand, they seem to end up in peoples back yards.
I think you have summed it up quite well and I am looking forward to hearing what statistics the government put out on 1st September to let the public know how close to their August targets they got. Of course the excuses for not reaching it will be amusing also.
Thai food, for years now i have watched my wife chopping away the outer skin of bamboo shoots.
She then messes about, preserves it, bags it, stores it, never really thought about eating it, until yesterday.
She had been preparing some bamboo shoots on sunday, yesterday i thought wonder what its like.
So on the internet found a recipe for bamboo shoots mushroom soup, gave it a go, we had some with our dinner, wife was very happy that i did it, and surprisingly it was damned good.
Nice to see first hand information. The latest news is that they will try to open again at some point in the future. The observations from your balcony are interesting. Must be a great place for photos.
