On leaving Thailand
My conference in Phuket, Thailand has closed so I am headed back to the USA today after a brief tour of Phuket Town.
My overall impression of Thailand is a very positive one. The beaches are beautiful, the people are extremely personable, and the food is not only tasty but medicinal of course!! The Thai Prime Minister is a very "hands on" manager it appears but on newspaper articles I read including his plans to:
1.) Call local police chiefs to check on the progress on reforming their operations and improving relations with citizens, and
2.) Giving cows to farmers -- a better idea might be to teach them how to use lap top computers to help them transition to the Knowledge-based economy and most likely reduce the de-forestation in the north of the country which is blamed for flash floods and erosion.
Well, I need to run to catch my local bus into town so watch for future posts once I land.
