I am an English teacher living and working in Bangkok. I've lived here a total of 16 years, starting in 1991. I also taught in Bangladesh, Israel and India briefly, but find myself drawn to Thailand again and again. Life overseas began as part of my teaching career, and I enjoyed it very much. Time and life's unexpected changes have surprised me; I never expected to be an "expat" but here I am. That said, I eat hot food in the morning, can't remember how to use a knife (I discovered this at a nice restaurant) and answer in Thai (bad, but it's still my habit). Thai people even understand me sometimes! I live in Thailand because it's "livable" -- good food, nice people, forgiving attitudes -- and hot weather (generally). If those suit you, too, come for a chat. I'm always looking for someone to chat with over a bowl of noodle soup (gway-tee-ow) or coffee -- no, for me, not both.
