Sitting at an internet cafe at one of the malls right now, checking emails and whatnot. Figured I might as well drop off a quick post. So this place is pretty amazing. It's also one hell of a city of contrasts. It's been a while since I've seen such incredibly contrasting social imagery, but here it is. Run down homes, abject poverty, and right next to that, a brand spanking new, beautifully designed and constructed, private condominium. And a block further down, yet another run down shanty of a home.

Might hit the shooting range tomorrow, assuming the ammo is priced okay. Took a look at the brochure for the range at the military base, and those fuckers really know how to make a buck. 50 rounds of what looks to be 9mm going for 3000 Baht. @_@ If you want an SMG (looks like they have Uzis and Ingrams), that 3000 Baht will only get you 30 rounds. o_O Anyways, I'm hoping the range in town (I would assume it'd be an indoor pistol range) is a little more reasonable and less touristy.

Right, I'm out. Not too keen on actually paying for timed internet access. :p I'll have pics when I'm back.

It's a shame you couldn't see New Orleans before the flood, it had that same mix of fancy tourist trap/one step above shanty architecture.

Y'know, now that you mention it, you're right, it was rather like that (I actually went there with the folks some years back). In many ways they both had the same kind of vibe about them.

Hey Tek -- what's the name of that videogame you were playing before, where you try to like demolish everything with your car and you try to get the most points possible?

I think you're right, actually. I remember her popping by Dan and Julie's during the big moving out session, and I was playing some mad Burnout 3. :p So yeah, Burnout 3. Crash mode! :D
