No easy task

Thailand is primarily an agricultural country. Fields of chilli pepper, corn, pineapple and numerous other vegetables and fruit cover much of the landscape outside the major cities.

Today, for a totally unrelated reason, I found myself in farm country west of Hua Hin. The area also is dotted with sharp-rising hills, thick with vegetation and often with a temple perched on or near the top.

In the areas between hills, many suburban-style neighborhoods are popping up, mostly meant for expat retirees or expat winter homes. I was visiting one of them, but passed by fields of pineapples – so I just had to ask my driver to stop.






Pineapples picked today will be in the fresh markets in town before dawn.

Lifetime journalist, author, magazine editor and publisher, now semi-retired and traveling the world. My plan, after living in Costa Rica for 14 months, was to visit a new country in southern Europe every three months to experience the culture and the challenge of adapting to a new environment, while on a fixed income. That plan was sidetracked when I was offered a job in Indonesia, providing an opportunity to explore Asia. Indonesia lasted for a 4 wonderful years but I have now moved on to Hua Hin, Thailand.
