The Super Bowl is being shown live in Thailand- with the time change to the USA the game kicked off around 7:00 a.m. Monday morning.
Premier League Football is the most followed sport in Thailand (the most participated in sport must be protesting), I doubt the Thai audience for the Super Bowl is very large.
The time change, cold weather and massive people playing the sport make the viewing surreal when you are tuning in (cup of coffee in hand and dressing for work) from Thailand.
I began working in Bangkok during 2008- a time that featured a great deal of political unrest in Thailand and particularly Bangkok.
I had lived in San Francisco for 15 years and was working on a project in Thailand. Generally, I spent 2 weeks in Bangkok and then 3-4 weeks in San Francisco. Did Bangkok begin to feel like home? Yes, and No. Bangkok and the Thai culture forced me to feel many things, the change in culture and environment was so dramatic it forced the decision- embrace or ignore.
I embraced and made Bangkok my home and base in 2009. I have enjoyed living in Bangkok, experiencing Thailand and the entire ASEAN region. I moved to Singapore in 2016...fallen behind on this blog since.
