Dear William: Not all those who wander are lonely!

'I wandered lonely as a cloud...
Well, that’s as maybe in my new life, but since our arrival in Bangkok,  a month ago, it’s been fun to wander around on my own.  When you move countries your senses are on high alert.  You feel life more. You hear more, smell more for sure, not all great!  You definitely see more when you are not walking along chatting with friends. 
By the way, the finding friends bit is looking promising,  I’ve met some lovely ladies in Bangkok.  Phase two of the search for friends is do they have nice husbands? For Mr Wren!
