Thanks for your kind words Grizz.
However I never panhandled, the closest I came to it was going to a Mission and attending the service for the promise of a meal after.
And believe me, some of those services were so dire we deserved a banquet afterwards.
One "padre" toId us we looked like the faces on a totem pole!

For any that wondered - or cared, I have been offline for two days travelling to lovely Laos.
Where I am comfortably billeted in a $15 a night hotel room.
A little more than I usually pay, but I do have a balcony.
Vientiane is becoming expensive.

Of course we all care Pete, but personally I'd been distracted so hadn't got to the point of wondering Tongue

Grizzy Dave is probably referring to cousin Liz at the Balmoral Bar and Grill and Midget Wrestling Empourium in B.C.

I would rather not write about the majesties – all these years and still no knighthood.
Even though I spend so much time and energy assisting young natives of these heathen lands to speak the Queens English – especially the young girls being the most in need.
And yet, not even an OBE!

The British pound has been battered lately against the world currencies, but here in Laos it has hardly moved from two months ago.
Consequently Vientiane is still good value for a traveler.
Even better for an USA traveler who would be paying $14 for the hotel room I have when I pay $15.
Due to the strong dollar at the moment.

Its just for the date they show . . .August 17. The column on the left shows how much it costs to buy a dollar in the foreign currency and the column on the right how much to buy a currency with a dollar. You can change the currency by clicking on the dark box on the left side of the page. I changed it to us dollar USD. That shows that for one dollar you get 0.750 british pounds, and that to buy a pound you have to pay $1.27 dollars.
