Haha, yeah, wine is so expensive, but I am kind of like you Spaniards, I am raised on wine being from California so I have to have it at lest once a week, which is all I can afford. They have raised the tax on wine again another 10 percent, it is unbelievably expensive for the most boring California table wine, Carlo Rossi generic "Red". Yeah its hard to accept because in California there is very cheap good quality wine if you shop around. Everybody loves Two Buck Chuck wine, two dollars for 700 cl decent trd. There is a Catalan restaurant in Bangkok around the corner from one of the big gogo bar areas Soi Cowboy that has a huge selection of Spanish wine. Always people from Spain in there, I even ended up sitting next to a guy from Spain,who was in the wine export business and appreciated that I could speak Spanish fairly well, his English was quite limited, so he bought me a number of glasses of amazing wines with chocolate and plum kinds of tastes, or one type did. He gave me a tour of Spanish wine Very different from California or Chilean wine which I drink more often.Glad you are enjoying with the pleasant and blissful introspection from your Honduran plant @Herbert Chickybaby give her a try one morning you feel fresh after a good long sleep, and let's see how the effect differs from the first experience you comment.
I love red wine, but in SE Asia i try to avoid it, since it is very expensive and bad quality.
Tiger and Chang cold beer is my diet while i'm there
I will come back to Thailand next year, but this time with family, so my seed hunting will be more restricted.
I'm actually a big stout drinker, but its very difficult to get up country. I'm crazy about Belgian beer but there is not much around in Thailand anymore. Thais think because a beer is dark that its very strong and dangerous, so stout is practically a controlled substance, haha! But there is always Chang if there is not much else so I go with that. My wife is into beer about every night, so there's Chang bottles all over the place around here, hehehe. Its kin dof a boring beer for me and I'd rather drink Thai "whiskey" (its actially rum) anyway if I am going to drink cheaply.
