A facade of beauty and smiles, this country is a paradise for the short-stay tourist. A haven of seemingly affordable pleasure. But, is it a place to relax? These 96 provocative and entertaining anecdotes capture the joys and frustrations of those people who remain in this land for a much longer sojourn. They were originally written as 'pen-to-paper' therapy for the author; to clear the mind, to start each new day with a positive outlook, a kind of stress relief with a laugh. Enjoy these realities experienced on a daily basis. Realities shared with stiletto-clad pretties, with a service-industry still wondering what the word 'guest' actually means: that guests are there to be served politely. (Yes, still grappling with the concept of good customer-focus!) Wonder at the thought of elephants thumping overhead and locals that just can't quite get out of the way. People whose volume knob is constantly set at a deafening pitch. Each story is a personal reality intended to inspire laughter and thought. Maybe even create change. So, please enjoy!
