  1. If a hawk feels threatened enough it will spin a 180, stick out it's talons, grab the crow/raven & snap it's neck... End of story. Corvid's beaks can be just lethal. That's why hawks go to great lengths to avoid them.
  2. Fair enough... Vehicle drivers in TH are not much better than the MC jockeys. I always tell people no matter how fast you are driving there will be someone faster passing you on either side...especially up there in Isaan! . . . My comment was directed more at motorcycle riding from a generic perspective. Crashing a motorbike is part of riding a motorbike..."Those that have & those that will..." In Thailand they are just a lot more creative in how (often) they do it!
  3. Yes, protecting territory. But I think they do it for "sport" too. If the hawk feels like the need it can dispatch the crow in about 2 seconds.
  4. Pattaya will become a more significant part of the expanding Chinese Riviera... Hainan Island; Da Nang, Nha Trang & Phu Quoc Island VN; Sihanoukville Cambodia; Pattaya/Rayong & Phuket TH; Penang MY; Singapore, etc. Belt & Road, Sand & Surf... That's why the Thais are bending over to let the Chinese tourists back in first. They're young, Covid-free & have cash in hand. They're sending a loud message. Just a function of proximity, demographics and the new world order. It's been underway for awhile ...Covid has just accelerated the transition.
  5. Nah...you can dig. I'm retired and very happy to just watch. 🙂
  6. "Official" figures... https://www.realclearpolitics.com/coronavirus/
  7. Several possible scenarios put Covid high on the 2020 "death by" list. https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2020/09/04/909783162/new-global-coronavirus-death-forecast-is-chilling-and-controversial
  8. Just stay away from my family & me...it's all good then. Generically speaking, of course. 🙂
  9. Upcountry Mor Lam Sing show -- party for a monk's ordination.
  10. Crashing a motorbike is part of riding a motorbike... "Those that have & those that will..." Thailand is no different than anywhere else. Ride defensively. Ride smart. Ride sober. Ride like your life depends on it. Because it does. Or, better yet...just let "Mama" drive. 😉
