Re: Coronavirus

Last night in Bangkok before we set off for home. No panic or overreaction here at all. Taxi drivers still not wearing masks, and we didn't see anyone wearing one in Koh Lanta. However, our internal flight to Bangkok was almost exclusively filled by Europeans, and they were mostly wearing masks. I'm...

Re: any one had any ghostly experiences ?

I have had one supernatural experience when I was 8 years old that I only share with my family, and had one staying in a b&b in Cornwall with my family.
My son had a supernatural experience in the old Woolworths store in town, when it changed to JJB. He still doesn't like talking about it.
