...Visa run?

Sort of - after 18 or so years here, I find my self in a situation where my ex wife (well not ex yet but seperated for 13 years) will now not sign for my marriage visa. Getting a divorce here can be problematic....

I could get a guardian visa for my lovely 6 year old daughter with my new wife (well, she will be my new wife 15 mins after my divorce) but the local Amphur office needs to interview the child and they won't do that till she's 7, which is October.

I can't get a guardian visa for my 14 year old that lives with me because I need his mother to assist....

This demands a follow-up post with details

Picture me in a bar surrounded by women all trying to kick my ass at Connect Four and having to buy me a drink when they lose. Emotions were running high and I was called an asshole too many times to count, apparently for 'being sneaky'. For those in the know - Connect Four skills are signs of a miss-spent youth in Thailand. Suffice to say I am a Zen Master (and no longer welcome at a certain bar in Phnom Penh).

Do you play in the casino, out of curiosity?

No - last time I was in a Casino was at Sentosa, Singapore. I used to love playing Black Jack but I think trading killed gambling for me. As I walk round now, I see nothing but the fact that if I sit there long enough I will lose. Mind you, the fact the minimum was $50 a hand didn't help...

haha, it's a story that needs to be told. I would love to visit Cambodia, also myanmar is on the list and go back to thailand someday, beautiful places, beautiful people.

Cambodians I've met have been as nice as people anywhere else in the world if you are nice to them. It is a poor country, so you have to keep your wits about you.

Anyway - upshot is I may not get the 90 day tourist visa I want. Not sure what will happen at that point but it may mean I have to enrol in a school in Thailand to improve my Thai and get an education visa until my little sweetheart turns 7.

That could mean weeks in Cambodia with 4 pairs of underpants, 3 pairs of shorts, 2 pairs of jeans and a handful of t-shirts.

Either way, I will try to make the most of it ;-)

On the bright side, I have been offered drugs numerous times in the street here and whilst I don't partake, I'll take it as a back-handed compliment that at 46, I don't look like an old fart...

Not right now - after the coup, there has been quite the clampdown.

That whole thing is a double-edged sword anyway....

yeah I am guessing if you go that route you are then a 'marked' man.

You'll always be in someone's pocket or looking behind your back. Maybe not on something trivial like a traffic fine but on your ability to stay in a country, it ain't worth it.

i have had similar experience in poor countries. You have to be very careful how you are perceived by the locals, sometimes it can be draining. If you give anyone any leverage on your position they will look to exploit it.

I think it depends on the contex (doesn't everything? ). I went to Cuba 18 years ago and when coming back, the passport control guy at the airport asked - quite nonchalantly - for a handout. I gave him 20$, reasoning that if I had refused I might have got delayed and missed my flight back.

In some similar situations it's probably worth weighing the options and go with your gut.
