Coronafornia Dreamin’ Part 5: Seven’s 2nd Diary Entry Dear Diary,   Being trapped in the United States is a special kind of Hell. There are no women to speak of.

Dear Diary, It’s day 67 of the global coronavirus lockdown. I’ve spent that entire time trapped in California at my mum and brother’s house. The Thai Civil Air Authority have just extended the ban on foreigners for another month, so after 6 flight changes, I’m tentatively scheduled to land back in Bangkok on July 2nd,

Whilst self-isolating in Prayut-imposed social exile in the prison that is the United States, and whilst waiting for my chance to re-enter Thailand and get back to living, I’ve been reminiscing. About the fun I’ve had in the red-light districts of Bangkok, and about the year I spent living and working in a small town

May 3, 2020 By bangkok7

Well, it’s official. Thailand is run by incompetent morons. I was supposed to be landing in Bangkok today after 3 previous delays due to dueling stupidity between leaders in The Philippines and Thailand. Ban after cancelled flights after ban after cancelled flights—all for a virus that kills less people than the seasonal flu. Prayut Jong

The airlines have decided to stay grounded until May 1, which coincidentally is the same day the Thai authorities are scheduled to reopen the airport, so I’ve purchased a ticket on Eva Air for May 2. As long as nothing changes between now and then, I can look forward to finally getting back home to

Seven’s Sleuthing: Thoughts on Coronavirus

April 19, 2020 By bangkok7

I’m not a scientist, or an expert in anything. I’m Bangkok Seven, and this is my blog. I am, however, a curious writer with access to Google, and so as the pandemic seized the world, I did what everyone on the planet did: I yelled “What the fuck?” at my laptop screen and began researching.

Greetings, reader. My name’s Bangkok Seven and this is my blog. Normally I’d be writing something self-indulgent about life in the red-light scene in TLOS, but thanks to the coronavirus, I’m currently trapped in Los Angeles.

Life in Thailand vs California: The Pros and Cons

April 5, 2020 By bangkok7

‘Sup my dude, it’s me, Bangkok Seven. I’m currently trapped in Los Angeles due to the global travel shutdown. Which isn’t as bad as it sounds, since Bangkok has closed the gogo bars, so I couldn’t go-go even if I was there. Still, sitting around bored at home offers time for reflection, and these days

Greetings punters, my name’s Seven and this is my blog. Today we’re going to take a long, loving look at one of the badass gogo bars in Patpong—Black Pagoda. It’s closed down now, due to Covid-19 (as all red-light bars are), but I’m not going to talk about the virus. I don’t know about you,
