I want to go to Thailand to see the movie!

According to Thaicinema.org the International Film & Animation Festival 2008 will take place in Pai, Thailand. What a fabulous idea to watch movies outdoors under a sea of mist in one of the most romantic places in Thailand! To lie down or you could sit if you like, with someone, friends and family or your fiancee, in front of the big screen surrounded by beautiful, scenic hills and mountains alongside the river, I could not ask for a better place to spend a holiday between 28 November and 7 December. Especially at this time of the year, when the weather is beginning to turn cooler. Whoever came up with the idea of organising this event in Pai is a genius and should be applauded. For those who do not know about this place, you could just search “Pai Thailand” on the internet. Here is the website for the festival, which is still under construction: Paifilmfestival2008. Thank you again to Thaicinema.org for this very interesting information

I do not think I will have the opportunity to go to Pai while the festival is taking place, which is unfortunate. As a movie goer and someone who used to regularly go to see outdoor movies at night during my youth, this event is  highly appealing. It is a great shame that I am living abroad right now. If you have never watched an outdoor movie you should at least try once in your life. It will be a memorable experience. I cannot guarantee, but I hope.

I was not paid by the Tourism Authority of Thailand to write this post; I am writing it of my own free will!

A city and I

One thing I do not particularly like about living in a big city is that there are too many people and there is too much noise. It is also difficult to find my own space albeit I live in my own place. I often feel a bit claustrophobic and out of place, especially when I am an alien in a foreign land. I do not mind visiting the city for a short period but I would hate it if I had to stay there all day and all night. Everybody seems to be in a hurry and oblivious to other people too. Sometimes I feel a bit dizzy seeing so many people around me. At the same time, I quite admire anybody who chooses to live a metro life.

Comparatively, I really enjoy spending my daily life in the countryside. I love the atmosphere of the suburbs. There is not much pollution, apart from the smell of pig manure on occasion. I do not have to be in a hurry like living in the city either. I just love it or maybe I am only being a bit indolent!
