Long time no see everyone. :) Hope all is well.
Was wondering lately, as I'm finishing my education here in California.. considering on relocating to Thailand for a teaching career.
For those who've been in both places, or know at all much about them.. which of these are the better to live in (in terms of apartment/condo cost, fruit quality/cost, and places for cycling)? Would certainly like to hear your opinion.
I don't know but an awesome video here of a farmer in Thailand:
Jon is a farmer from northeastern Thailand. He founded the Pun Pun Center for Self-reliance, an organic farm outside Chiang Mai, with his wife Peggy Reents in 2003. Pun Pun doubles as a center for sustainable living and seed production, aiming to bring indigenous and rare seeds back into use. It regularly hosts training on simple techniques to live more sustainably. Outside of Pun Pun, Jon is a leader in bringing the natural building movement to Thailand, appearing as a spokesperson on dozens of publications and TV programs for the past 10 years. He continually strives to find easier ways for people to fulfill their basic needs. For more information visit http://www.punpunthailand.org
This is quite an inspiring video. Have been thinking about this constantly now for the past few days since you posted.. my perception of society has been significantly altered. Thank you. (:
Wasn't it the so that you can't fully own land/property as a foreigner in Thailand, i have to look into it more though...
