Living in Thailand is not without some annoying problems that’s for sure, but to be honest, the problems we have simply don’t make the place less enjoyable to live in. There is no perfect place to live on this planet in my opinion but the problems we have here are the kind that simply doesn’t bother us at all. Well, maybe a little, but I’d rather have these problems than a government oversight where everyone is wrapped in cotton wool for our own protection as is the case in Australia. When you live in Thailand, you need to take care of yourself and get used to all the red tape and paper-pushing which is the way here. A simple task like resolving lost documentation with the DLT can take 1/2 a day to resolve which was the case we had last Monday. Everything here in Thailand is computer recorded, but the paper-pushing through government systems creates jobs so you’ll have to get used to it. Of course, these things aren’t everyday problems and the lack of a Nanny State regime like Australia makes it so much more enjoyable!
