Let me thank my 4 regular readers and 7 lurkers for their loyalty.
In 2014, I consumed alcohol (beer, whisky, alcoholic drinks offered to me of unknown provenance) equivalent to about 10 liters of beer.
In previous years I have been to Chiang Mai, Surat Thani (Koh Samui), Lopburi, Bueng Gan and Chachoengsao.
With my new camera Sony DSC-RX100 II (bought on 25.06.2014 for 22,530 THB; 1,170 THB VAT refund) I took 5880 pictures which occupy 33.6 GB on my computer.
