Explosion on our doorstep – over development in our midst.

Are we heading for another property balloon burst like the crash in 1997

Gertie’s Back in Town
I have returned to my beloved Land of Smiles – Thailand – Paradise. Not an England or another country with sunshine but Thailand with all its charm – frustrations and eccentricities. Pattaya and Jomtian. The boom of buildings and facilities is to be wondered at. Will there be all the right resources to cope with the expected influx. High rise apartment blocks some say one as high as 91 floors. Oh dear!! One wonders about Staff – water – electricity and oh what about the rubbish??

I guess those that stay will watch and see this great expanse and all will have there opinions on what is being done wrong – how it should have been differently but who are we to pass comment when in the UK we can’t even build a national stadium on time or within a reasonable budget.

As some buildings reach for the sky – other developments will no doubt spread outwards like a pizza dough that unrestrained spreads across a table. My space on the beach – the one I have used for more than 17 years now is still there but instead of the 10 mins in the baht bus can now take anything up to an hour or more to get to and at holiday times goodness – best stay away.

So rather than get hot and bothered I’ll sit and watch and see if my and others greatest fears and concerns are realized and come to pass.
