Last Week At Immigration,

we put in our passports and paperwork for our 1 year visa extension,

 and were told to call back on Monday to pick up our passports,

 which we did so we now have our visa for the coming year all in place, we were in and out of the immigration office on Soi 5 Jomtien almost quicker than I can write this, a big well done to the staff there,

 we had finished our pineapple we snack on in the afternoon and evenings, so we called into the market for some more, on the same stall,

durians, I have tried these a few times, but have to admit I do not like them at all, an acquired taste I guess, 

after our evening meal we watched some more of I, Claudius, now very dated with sets that were vastly underfunded, but what a story as Clau-Clau, that many would mockingly call him, recites his life history to you, the viewer, and what a history! from approximately the death of Marcellus (24/23 BC) to Claudius' own death in 54 AD, he shows what life at the top of society was like, the BBC mini series is based on a book of the same name by Robert Graves, if you have time watch it, but forget about over budgeted film sets, this is by comparison done on a shoe string, and is all the better for it,

 we rounded off the evening by watching the first 4 episodes of Suits, which we both thoroughly enjoyed, and with that we were off to bed.
