Much as I like Thailand and the Thai’s, there are times when I just do not get this country. After the somewhat pathetic subway “crash” (term to be used very very lightly indeed), the subway is now closed until February 1st (as reported by 2bangkok) to fix a series of items that probably should never have been there in the first place. Now remember this is an incident that the Ministry of Transport refered to as “a schoolboy error“.
But maybe the people in charge finally think that perhaps Thai’s are not the best people to operate such a system, as reported here in the Bangkok Post. Oh, and as talked about in slightly more colourful language on this site (discretion advised, I guess).
