View Full Version : Kielhauler returns

Hello everybody! Kapitan Zupp is back from an over-extended patrol of the Far East. Six months in Thailand turned into TWO years somehow! The region is like quicksand - easy to get into but almost impossible to get out of. Hi to the old guard: RealJambo, Celeon, Foe, Socko, K61, Tuddley3, Messervy, Bunkeratt et al. Gonna be a while before I set sail(?) again, Zupp owes about 20M Reichsmarks in unpaid parking fines on U-666 at Bangkok. No photos to upload I'm afraid, two cameras broken and one stolen. Such is life or as the Thais say 'Mai pen rai' (whatever). Nice to be home at last.

Welcome back ! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

So you've witnessed the trouble in Bangkok live and first hand ?

Hi Celeon. I stayed well away from Bangkok at that time, although the 'Red Shirt' protesters meant no harm to foreigners. I did witness the problems in Pattaya when the ASEAN summit was stormed, that was a bit scary. The western media badly misrepresented what was going on over there. I don't want to say too much about it in public as I hope to go back very soon. Of course, everybody knows the Thais are a very friendly race. It's not called the 'Land of Smiles' for nothing! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Welcome back, Kielhauler!

We were worried here, if you were alright among the "events" in Thailand. Good to know that you are alright!

I missed Zupp's adventures http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Always nice to see an old hand return to active duty, especially one with such a clever handle. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
