Join the author as she takes a vacation from being a 'gaijin' in Japan to enjoy a visit as a 'falang' in rural Thailand. Diane and her Japanese friend, Naomi, have adventures in Thailand that are not the usual fare. Laugh as Naomi sends an entire train car full of people into an uproar with one small action. Follow along as Diane tells a monk just what he can do with his unwanted advances. Meet Joe and Mr. Asparagus at the Youth Hostel from Hell. Watch as Diane and Naomi get ripped off, not once, but twice – first by a scam in Bangkok and later a tourist trap in Chiang Mai. Be amazed as they are nearly taken in by the ruse of a couple of teenage sharks looking for sponsors for their 'scholarships.' Discover the 'Buddha Way' of treating guests. Visit the "We Don't Know Travel Agency!" Catch their carefree spirit as they travel by train, bus and plane, on a serendipitous trip with no advanced room reservations or set itinerary.
