a little further along the street, not a lot of people about!
a favorite place for the disco crowd,
street show, for SWING (Service Workers In Group)
the show looking towards Soi Diamond,
the SWING line up, it is basically a AIDS awareness group,
the Lobster Pot has been here for as long as I can remember, Sea Zone is the new kid on the block,
typical food cart, chicken, sausages, liver, hearts and squid,
just heat and sprinkle with salt, delicious!
looking towards Soi 17, if you are coming down Soi 17 from Third road it is on the right, there is a large pharmacy on the corner,
looking towards Pattaya Tai, the good news is that there always seems to be a hairdresser waiting, in all of the times I have used it I have never had to wait.

a view of the reception area from the car park,
beautiful swimming pool,
looking to the left,
and to the right,
pool side bar,
television area in reception,
Diana as we were leaving the Resort,
shrine at Sabai Resort,
we then parked up in Friendship car park to go round the market, in the car park was the bike above, all I can say is that who ever owns it takes bike touring very seriously! the suitcase sized baggage on the back must make the handling of the bike challenging to say the least,
disc rear brakes and gas filled suspension,
I particularly liked the blue electric fan on the top of the windscreen, I guess to keep the rider cool at traffic lights!
Diana after a hard mornings shopping,
relaxing with a nice ice coffee, Eric, Joe and my self are meeting up with all of the golfing Super Stars tonight at 8, just going out for a few drinks as tomorrow Diana and myself leave for the Philippines, so I hate to say no more posts for the next week or so, but I will then put all of Philippine trip on and all the pictures that I take of Jil and Eprils wedding.

satellite map of the Brahmaputra river,
why was it always my turn to dig out the jeep?
whilst there we went to one of the national parks and saw the rare one horned rhinoceros,
this is a shot of a mother and sister, in the nineteenth and end early twentieth century, the Indian Rhinoceros was hunted relentlessly. Reports from the middle of the nineteenth century claim that some military officers in Assam individually shot more than 200 rhinos. In the early 1900s, colonial officials became concerned at the rhino's plummeting numbers. By 1908 in Kaziranga, one of the rhino's main ranges, the population had fallen to around 12 individuals. In 1910, all rhino hunting in India became prohibited, today thanks to conservation numbers are up to 2500 individuals in the wild,
a rare shot of me at work,
ops! caught working again!
