    NICE!!! You have a much better stash than I do, but then I don't know anyone in BKK so I don't have to share!!

    I gave a cup to my neighbor. She said, really? this is robusta? it's fantastic! Hmm, maybe it can work

    Edit: my neighbor is Thai. She has a masters degree in engineering, is married to a Swede and lives most of the time in France. We’ve been neighbors for 16 years. Very appreciate her comment on our coffee

    @Lone Stranger, thanks for meeting us in Bangkok. Hard times for all in the circumstances. Nice to have good people around.

    Patty says she didn’t get to make her green curry for you. Next time we meet, where ever it is, she will cook for you.

    Have a safe trip home. I hope we can enjoy some corners together in northern Thailand in the future.

    Lopburi, I hope you dont mind me jumping in but it is official I retire on the 24th July and will be headed to Thailand. I am a little concerned as regards the quarantine, not quite sure what that entails at this pint, the wife is trying to find out. All set however in Sukhothai. Looking forward to hopefully meeting you both at some point in the future.

    We currently have one friend in quarantine here. She is Thai and tested negative. She was on holiday in Sweden when it got locked down. She got a repatriation flight home. After going through this I feel much safer here in Thailand than somewhere else. When this is over I hope we can ride together. Stay safe

    Vietnam is currently closed down but is working towards reopening. For a while though they had a mandatory 2 week quarantine at a Government provided and maintained location so I'm not sure if Thailand is similar.

    I think the main thing right now is we all need to be strong, stay safe and take care of each other wherever we are. In six months time look beside you and see who is there. Those will be true friends. Please wear a mask

    Yes it is as I understand. Our friend says where she is at is ok, just need to wait the 14 days. She has health care and food, Just need to trust and relax. Things are opening here now today, let’s see
