Almost A Hundred In Rayong

This very nice old lady is ninety-six years old, and it was great to meet her. We had a couple of nice chats, which always surprises me, my Thai is not that good. She's virtually blind, she put her face about two inches from mine to see me, and she doesn't get around that good, but she's happy, and socially engaged. She's amazed to still be alive, she told me, "I'm almost a hundred!" like she could hardly believe it herself.

This was at the Rayong house, see below.

Would you rather be 96 in Thailand, or in LA? (Rhetorical question)

On Social Security? Thailand. Totally rich? L.A.
