The 200th Post

Morning light on laundry and plants on the 2nd floor ledge above a shop, Bangkok

When Bao-Bao's Blog began back on March 22nd (A Beginning, Of Sorts) I really didn't have much of a plan or direction - it was more out of discouragement with a forum I participated in at the time. I'd just returned from a few weeks in Thailand, and while I was eager to share about the trip, there didn't seem to be a place I felt comfortable to do that... so I created my own.

If you've never read the opening post you might do that today. It'll give you an idea of what the intent and idea of the blog was and continues to be.

I feel fortunate that many of the good folks from forums I belong to have followed me here - and joined in, as well. There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 - 250 different visitors a day here, and about 50 that check in regularly - far more than I ever dreamed possible - and I am flattered.

When possible I check in a couple of times a day to read comments and messages sent to the email address in the "Standard Legalese" block to the right, and if you want to contact me directly for an idea, recommendation or whatever, you're always welcome to do so. I'll do my best to reply promptly.

Thank you again for your visits, your comments and your participation. I truly appreciate it.

I see lots of pots with plants.. but they appear to be ornamental plants. Do the Thai ever grow vegetables, herbs and fruit in the pots I see in many of the photos you post.

Yes, they do - but primarily it's decorative things out in "display". I've seen edibles in pots where there was more space, though. Remember, cheap produce is readily available in many markets, too. I'll have to make better mental note next time I'm out walking.

I for one enjoy your blog. It is one of the few blogs that is not all about money boys. What sort of things do you get up to in Thailand? You do not seem to be one for the bars.
