We go together to Wat Pak Nam Pasicharoen, and separate in the early afternoon as he wants to buy new clothes (hence 500 Baht today) in Ramkhamhaeng for a job interview on Monday. At night he messages me that there are few buses and if I could pay for taxi, first I refuse, but after half an hour I relent. But that's not all, he has the card for the bottle in Welcome Pub and his friend is there, so he has to go back. First I refuse to give him money, but when he dresses and tells me will get there somehow, I relent, 200 Baht for taxi going and coming back (so I don't have to go down to pay for taxi on the road in the middle of the night). Do you see the irony, I paid for the bottle which I would rather have in my room now than in the bar (I don't drink, but I will surely find a grateful recipient) and now for taxi so they can drink in the bar (he invited me, but once was enough).
To be continued.
I will travel somewhere end of this week, either Kanchanaburi with a Farang friend (means M will have to find another place to stay in Bangkok or go back to his family in Uttaradit - I would have to give him money for ticket) or Udon Thani, where I could take him with me if he wants to come.
