      Take care of your self friend
      Bircow,

      thanks - bad luck this time, but may be next time.

      Be happy that you can be there right now - it is cold here in Germany, not really cold (4 deg. Cel.), but already too cold for me. Nobody on the roads - everything dead. Funny "life" here...

      27.12.2006, 7 pm: AIRPORT --> FRA --> BKK. Still 3 nights to go.

      That boy (in the cartoon) needs a trip to LOS. ;^)

      Happy and Safe Holidays, all you Bestards!

      I'm going to Chiang Mai with the TGF for New Years. Last fling before I'm off to take up residence in cold, frigid (in so many ways) UK. *sigh*

      LOL, 36.4 THB for the USD - not bad! Thailand is cheap(er) now!

      You mean that they finally transferred you to UK? My deepest sympathies.

      Anyway, have a very happy and lustful holidays.

      1st Impression

      Visited the Lodge late November, Very nice! Had already booked a room for the month so could'nt take advantage of Giottos offer to book long term (very nice offer).

      Was impressed with layout of the place and how I was treated there being only a visitor, Girls were very friendly and there was a few cityxguide.com members for a party. More than willing to out themselves as cityxguide.com members! ODD? Lodge was much more than I expected! The place would be perfect for a private club! Maybe with a little Eden/Lolitas/FKK Mixture? Just a thought! Each time I dropped in for either dinner or just a drink was hosted by a very nice lady who seemed to be kind of a Greeter. Nice touch!

      Steaks were excellent and enjoyed dining around the pool.

      Was by for a "MAIDS" party, Very nice!

      A thought having now visited the lodge:

      Wheres the Giottos Grotto Jacuzzi room (Presidential Suite would work fine)

      I have enjoyed following the Lodges events on this forum and will in the future try it out for a short time. Not sure Im the upscale clientele the lodge is looking for! Like mine a little farther from home!

      Men's Club

      Rikusa,

      Thanks for your report.

      We had an alternative concept in the beginning, to make a kind of Men's Club instead of a hotel. But I think it is ok as it is now, though the profibility of a Men's Club would for sure be higher than the actual Lodge setup.

      Upscale customers - no, please, not too upscale. It's a place where everybody can go, no ties for dinner needed. Just relax and enjoy the ambience around the pool, I think that's what all the Lodge is about. It is for normal people like you and me.

      Another 2 days to go. And then - the nicest road of the city is waiting for me - the road to the airport !

      Hmm, down a little against the Euro (= real money ;-) too, but I wish it would slide to 50 THB, that'd make converting prices that much easier ;-).

      Bircow,

      Thank you very much. BESTARD!!!

      It is cold. No blue sky visible, only clouds. Always a bit rain. Close to 0 degrees, I expect snow soon.

      I really feel 'home'. The usual Christmas chit-chat. Family - who did what? And did you hear that? No??? Oh my god...

      And everything is so expensive. Euro same same DM before. And now VAT is rising from 16% to 19%. Is this government crazy? (How can I know?) Everything will be more expensive than (I discover a sense for logic).

      It is 11:30 am. Another 6 hours, and I will be on the way to the airport and leave Germany to the Germans!

      Cold

      Now - 4 deg. Celsius.

      That's a clear No-No for Germany.

      Chilly

      Chilly in Dubai also - I have to put up with this 24 degrees celcius another four days before finding the warmth of a Thai hottie or three.

      Only three Piper? Come on, the jacuzzi can handle 4, and we are looking forward to the pics to prove it.

      Sorry, can't make it this time, going straight to JKT.

      Still warm here in the Eastern US, but I am headed to Europe next week and then on to Asia.

      Will be in Bkk for one night the following week. Since the company is paying I won't be staying at the Lodge but will try to scoot down for dinner at least.

      Thor93,

      What? You mean for the huge company budgets you sleep in Orientals, and privately you creep cheaply into Livingstone's Lodge?

      OK, now I know. Peep Inn will be booked for you - next time! Bestard!

      A few posts down, I remember seeing a post you wrote as :

      The best road in the city is awaiting for me : The road to the airport... I believe that was BKK airport.

      I think this also applies to Germany as well.

      You should be living in the airport, man. Have you watched the film about the guy who used to live in the airport (Tom Hanks was playing the lead role, but it was the true story of a man who actually was living in an airport) ?

      Neyzen Tevfik,

      Long time no hear. Hope you are well there in Turkey!

      No, I mean the road here in Germany to the next Airport. And - in two hours from now I will drive on that road !

      This country is by far too cold for me. You can have it!

      Well, two things really. One the 5 star hotels give me three towels in three sizes.

      And two, the TGF's nose is still out of joint from hearing 1Ball ask me where I found her. I guess she didn't realize that was a compliment. Or was it?

      Of course it was meant as a compliment. She is very cute. The language barrier sometimes can get in the way of paying someone a compliment. Thor, sorry if she took it the wrong way.

      She understood you perfectly. Her english is very good. And she knows how cute she is, believe me. It was just the way she chose to interpet the comment. She is drawing a very distinct line between working girls and herself. And she thought you thought she was a working girl and that just drives her nuts.

      Unfortunately for me she saw and heard a bit too much down at the Lodge and now doesn't trust me down there. For some reason she thinks if left alone, I would want to avail myself of the services of some of the girls there.

      Thor93:

      And she would be wrong because? LOL

      (Just want to point out that you said "want" not "would")

      Seasons greeting to all and a happy 2007

      Fair enough assumption, especially if she is a TG in the Sports bar. I remember your earlier posts about taking the risk, then getting interrogated - made me think twice about bringing Wildcat there!

      Thor, I knew she wasn't a working girl, G had told me you were coming. I guess my compliment came out wrong. Give her a slap on the ass, and tell her I said hi.
      What I don't understand is why she would think you would avail yourself of the services of some of the girls in the sports lounge. How could she think that?

      When I thought we were breaking up, I snuck into Bkk on my own and stayed at the Lodge. I called her from there using USA Direct and thought that would not leave a trail. Unfortunately for me, it left the main number and she called back and confirmed I was there. So I was nailed cold.

      And to make a long story short, after my adventures with the Starlet and others, I realized what I had with her was far better than anything else I might ever find, so therefore the reconciliation. Unavoidably though, certain facts came out, although luckily not all the details.

      As a result staying at the Lodge is now a quite sensitive subject with her. Like most Thai women, she is extremely possesive and extremely jealous. While I think she will tolerate some fooling around while I travel as long as it is discrete and doesn't come to her attention, she does not trust me around other Thai women. She saw the girls in the Lounge and realized quite quickly that there were just too many temptations for me there.

      I think the Lodge would have been ok with her, if I had never been caught staying there by myself. But once she figured that out, she is never going to trust me there by myself. She met Giotto and they had some interesting conversations about the girls there. She is really understanding about working girls, as long as I keep my distance.

      Thor,

      Given your long-term goals, I think you've chosen the right path. Just don't forget to come out and play with the boys every now an' then! ;^)

      Cheers!

      Thanks, I think I have done the right thing now too.

      But a little bit of playing around in other locales is definitely on the agenda. Do some scouting for me in UK. I think I have a project coming up that will get me there a bit in the coming year.
