A New Year`s Eve Tale from Sunny Phuket

If we all really set our minds to it, we should be able to do something about changing things in 2014, shouldn’t we?

(PHUKET, Thailand) - Phuket marketplace Yesterday, I exchanged a few words, in English, with what my keen ear detected to be a Russian woman who was waiting in a KFC queue with a pretty little girl of about five.
