I recall a story from a while ago...
Three friends were at a funeral of one of their peers and were chatting away about what a wonderful guy he was.
"When I was down and out, he lent me some cash to tide my family over until we could get back on our feet. I feel awful that I never repaid him." said one of them.
"When my child was sick, he gave me the cash to pay for the needed medicine; I owed him a lot. I also feel terrible that I never got to return the favour or the money." added the second man.
"He helped me too" said the retired Army Chief and Deputy Prime Minister. "Millions of my army unit's cash was missing and I was blamed. But I didn't cheat him as the two of you did; I threw a cheque into his coffin just before they closed the lid!".
Old mate in NZ had an Anglia and used it to carry trestles & planks for his painting contracting job. Everything tied down fore and aft to bumpers, side to side thru open windows. Went around a sharp bend one day, car turned 90 degrees and trestles rotated straight ahead. Funny as.
Steering spline was buggered and he steered with a multi-clamp secured to the steering column.
I thought leaders of other countries, regarding tourism, would be smarter than here. But the decision to ban backpackers who bring in money is as stupid as when Thailand opened Koh Larn except the beaches.
Isn't this actually discrimination? I thought discrimination was the worst thing possible in 2021.
I'm not a backpacker but I love to travel cheap. So to travel cheap (what backpackers do) will be banned from now on?
So in other words, you are not free to go on holiday where you want? You can ban certain indoor places, but you can't ban the outside for others...
