Bangkok Pattaya Thailand Groundhog Day

Bangkok Pattaya Thailand Groundhog Day

Bangkok Pattaya Thailand Groundhog Day is my way of describing my Thai trips in 2006. I return 2 or 3 times each year & never fail to have fun with my Aussie friends. The photo shows lunch at the Mantra with Nikki and Tony Murphy.

Dah is one beautiful babe.

Walking St Pattaya.

  Bangkok Pattaya Thailand Groundhog DayWalking St as an attraction compares favorably to many other infamous world red light  areas. Patpong,   Nana Plaza & Soi Cowboy in Bangkok, the RLD in Amsterdam,the Reeperbahn in Hamburg, KabukichĹŤ in Tokyo, 42 nd St New York,  Vila Mimosa in Rio De Janeiro & Kings Cross in Sydney. Sadly all of these areas I have visited at some stage in my life. :)

John Sinclair and Joerg Ulitza

Bangkok Pattaya Thailand Groundhog Day

Happy times in Pattaya, sadly in 2014 Joerg was arrested leaving Hong Kong with a suitcase full of drugs, he is in jail there awaiting trial in November 2015. We were all shocked when this happened, he will be 80 years of age by the time he goes to trial. November 2015 and all charges have been dropped.

Stollies for me please
