Travel to Thailand

Carol Hollinger was a housewife, mother, and teacher, and Mai Pen Rai Means Never Mind – this is her account of her experience in all those roles during her stay in Thailand, where her husband was stationed in the US Foreign Service. A brilliant observer of customs, manners, and cultural differences, she writes frankly and unsparingly of herself and her fellow Americans, and relates both the fun and frustration of communicating with the Thai people – without being coy or condescending.
