Modern Thailand II

Cheery front page headline that greeted me upon arrival: “Bird Flu Outbreak Spreading.”

Glad I’ve got my Tamiflu! (FYI, I told the prescribing doc that I thought I should not have it, given the scarcity. He said that I was exactly the sort of person who needs it because I travel to the likes of Thailand and thence precisely the type of guy who might inadvertently carry the bug home. And, hey, it’s not clear it will be useful.)
