  1. That's the same all over the world, but ladyboys are only common in a few countries, so I don't think that's the answer. 🤔
  2. I remember when I started traveling to the Philippines as a young man. I had never seen a ladyboy before that, and it made me feel very uncomfortable when they were around. When visiting my wife's family, they had a ladyboy hairdresser, coming home to them to fix everybody's hair, and I hide in the basement, hahaha. It turned out that he refused to leave before he had met the foreigner! I was told he was okay and after a very long time in the basement I had to give up because I needed to go to the bathroom. Without getting into the details, I can say that it was an embarrassing moment to me, but to great joy of my wife's family, hahaha. I have now become used to them, and I must say, once they understand that you are not interested in having sex with them, they are like people in general. Sometimes it is even more easy to have a good discussion with them, because they think like a man, for obvious reasons 😜 One thing I always thought of is, why is it so common in Philippines, Thailand and some parts of South America but not the rest of the world?? Philippines and many countries in South America was colonized by Spain, but I don't know if that's the reason, hahaha, but is probably someting with the genetics. However, this don't explain why it's common in Thailand?
  3. Makes me think of Clint Eastwood:s movie "The Mule", based on a true story.
  4. I may think a bit different about these things, but to me it's more important to live a good life now instead of saving a lot to when (if) I get old. I think of my old parents, they are in a very good financial situation now, but they can't enjoy the money because they are old, tired and have pain in their bodies from many years of hard work. I wish they had enjoyed more earlier when they had the chance. I retired myself last year, at an age of 50. I have now been at home for a year and I really enjoy owning my time. No more stress! Me and my wife don't need much to be happy, so it didn't make any sense to stay in the ratrace longer than necessary. It's of course necessary to have the financial funds to support your way of living, but living a simple life makes it easier. If you realise that the money go faster than expected, it's always possible to start working again, but you can never get back the days that are already gone. Take care and keep safe.
  5. This was really strange to me when I started traveling to the Philippines. Now I don't even pay any attention to it, hahaha.
  6. My wife also do this sometimes, even she's been living in Europe for more than 35 years. I guess old habits are hard to break 😉
  7. I am not surprised at all. I was a passenger in a minibus, maybe ten years ago, and an accident with a jeep had just happened. People were laying all over the road and the wheels were still spinning on the upside down jeep. Our driver barely lifted his foot from the gas pedal, he only zig zag in high speed between the wounded people on the road!!! 😮
  8. That is quite the contrary to the Philippines I suppose 😂
  9. Are you saying that you never get an entry stamp when going to Europe??
  10. Sounds very strange that you didn't get a stamp when entering the European Union. That is where the checks are supposed to be, but once inside, there is minimal control. Problem with that is that many criminals are already inside and can move freely without being tracked by the authorities. You also need a passport or a valid national ID-card when traveling in Europe. You must have a way to identify yourself to authorities if being asked. There is permanent and mobile border patrols within Europe too, as well as the equipment to scan vehicles and cameras reading license plates. However, the criminals are not stupid and know to use a "clean" plate when crossing a border.
  11. That may sound great, but this is what have caused big problems in the European Union. Criminal people roaming around, crossing borders with no way of keeping track of them.
  12. I have no fact behind this, but I can imagine that it would be pretty easy to get in trouble if you, as a foreigner, search in a public place and find something valuable.
  13. Just imagine what the charge will be that day the society really is cashless, and we have no other choice than to use the cards.😠
  14. Yes, even now. It started before the pandemic. During the pandemic I can see the logic of it, but not now.
  15. True, as long as they also accept cash, I think it is good. Problem is that it was like that in Sweden and when they saw that people not used cash very often they stopped accepting cash. That is what I don't like.
