The first day we're there is March 17th. St. Patrick's Day. Where else can you get Magners and Chang at the same bar? Why, the Dubliner in Bangkok, my friend. And boy, do we make friends.
By the time St. Patrick's Day turned into March 18th, I tallied 42 smiles! I'd say that's a good start. At that rate, however, I'd make a little more than half my goal. It was time to pick up the pace.
