The only disturbing news I am getting from friends in Bangkok is that they are coming up against a wall of " Thais first " which I find ridiculous.

If that is the case it is because of the trickle down effect of xenophobic and nationalistic verbal assaults on TV from certain people in government.

It needs reporting to Embassies if this is the case, as this will be taken very seriously and passed on up the chain to Western leaders, who are supplying South East Asia with technology,  science and surplus vaccines.

Evidence for this? And where are you?

Like many others actually IN Thailand, I have a jab scheduled.

Whether I want it is not something the embassy would not get involved in.

I think they bailed on all that, didn't they? And syphoned off your personal information to boot, yes? 

No.

I have given them nothing beyond name, rank and number (all right, I gave them my passport number). What are you on?

Got the email from the embassy this morning, and I had to just laugh. They have put their trust in Thailand and other countries to vaccinate the citizens who are living or working in those countries.

 

So that big 'ol nanny state aint working for ya.

Getting vaccinated with AZ here in Bangkok already, my appointments for tomorrow.

 

So you're going to put your trust in Thailand after all?

 

I'm glad that's over.

Why is the head of the USA embassy in Bangkok calling himself a chargé d'affaires? Did we get sold to the French since I've been gone? 

Heads of embassies of the USA are called ambassadors. 

The French would not buy you. They have vaccines.

You must have read of the personal data breach, right?

I repeat: what are you on? I have an appointment (and I know full well it might not materialise) for next week to get a vaccine. I have given them my age and my passport (incidentally, via a fairly sophisticated set of software) and they have asked nothing more.

BTW those details are available to authorities in any of the 57 countries I have been with that passport.

What data breach, I ask in all innocence?
