The spicy and the boring

I remember my evenings in Kashmir, around 7 pm, very clearly. It was the moment when time stopped in my house, the clocks bore an ugly sight. 7 pm, the time for the local news in Kashmir, full of boring, uninteresting stories. Everyday half an hour of my life, went into the pathetic blabbering of boring incidents around the valley. I dont blame them, children always have much more interesting stuff to do.

Evening news in Pattaya is interesting, in the fact that its spicy. Who stole what, who killed what, news about Russian tourists, girlfriends, scandals, drugs, and drunken old men. Interesting.

As I read on this T-Shirt somewhere:

"Good men go to Heaven, bad men come to Pattaya"
