We joke a lot after the ritual
where you come from ect
we talk about Thai and people Hill tribe from the mountain
also if poor are generous
They want I follow them in karaoke
but I ask where are the girls.
They answe the girls have already husband or boy friend
and so if we are only man we go for what?
They smile girls will arrive but in a night time.
Is true is not true what we was talking
when people are drunk open the mouth and tell story different from reality
anyway
they want to know they want to discover they are interesting and curios. about your story and them story,must to be a little beat like a children and If you are, will enjoy A lot.
