For the final last 3 days in Thailand one of my best friends and the co-author of "Reinvented Life," Christofer Ashby,joined me in Bangkok for a mini adventure before we linked up with our Lifebook group in Yangon, Myanmar. We started off a few hours after Chris’ arrival by doing none other than clothes shopping! Thailand has permanently screwed up my sense of clothes pricing in the United States. In fact, other then my weakness for Lululemon gear, I'm gonna have a hell of a time buying clothes in the states now that I've experienced buying nice shirts for 2-10 bucks and pants for 5-15 dollars. Beautiful women's dresses, $10-20. Without the unique reference obtained by traveling and venturing out to the raw street markets, (past the tourist traps and malls), you'd never know how much you're being ripped off every time you load up at Neiman or Saks for a new wardrobe.Bangkok is literally bursting with tailors in every direction not to mention the thousands of hungry clothing vendors. They may have more tailors than Tuk-Tuk drivers and that's saying something because the Tuk-Tuk contingency are EVERYWHERE! At first it's impossible to know where to go so we asked a sharp-looking local for a recommendation and he sent us to see Santos, about 15 minutes from our hotel.
