Yesterday I went for a walk around Bangkok.

I witnessed so many homeless people. I met an old lady and gave her 100 baht, when I walked back she had gone, probably to get some food.

Thai people sleeping everywhere where they can find some shade, obviously I can’t help everyone.

I seen another guy sleeping under the nana hotel sign when I was having a beer yesterday. I seen a well dressed ladyboy walk over to him, I was impressed I thought to myself she’s going to help him.

Unfortunately what I witnessed was the homeless guy giving the well dressed ladyboy 20 baht and leaving. 
 

I waited for about 30 minutes and the ladyboy never returned.

I hope they pop into Soi Cowboy. Going by the shocking state of the girls in there, they need the charity to find a job that suits them! 

Jeeze that place has declined!

I think that is common knowledge for any country in the World, chap, but thanks for reminding us....🥴

I don't forget that this country does not have credible social security, unemployment benefits or state pension to take into account regarding folk finding money to live. Plus if Thai with no family, you maybe  stuffed. 😯
