Three Thailand trips 2009

Three Thailand trips

Three Thailand trips Three Thailand trips in February April and July. The best was certainly in July when my good friend Phil Thomson arrived with his 21 yo son Michael to introduce him to life in Thailand. Michael’s mother is Japanese and he speaks the language fluently. Being a young good looking guy the girls in the bar made quite a fuss of him.

The two girls above are Anne & Jaeb from the Cherry Bar.

This post focuses on the July trip with Phil & Michael Thomson.

Michael, Jan & Phil

The Honey Pot in Soi 2

The Honey Pot in Soi 2 photo HoneyPotBand14.jpgThis was one of my favorite drinking holes, air conditioned and great music. Sadly now in 2014 along with all the other Soi bars it has closed.

Another reason I liked the Honey Pot.

I rest my case.

 While we are on the subject

  Three Thailand trips I can never show too much of Jan, in my eyes she was the most gorgeous Thai girl I knew.

Did I hear you say you wanted more of Jan?

Three Thailand trips

Well so did I, more & more. 🙂
