So I’m walking through Chatuchak market, one of the worlds largest markets at 35 acres and with 5000 stalls and an estimated 200,000 visitors per day. I stop at a coffee stall and my wife orders a coffee. A western couple sitting there tell us that the coffee is really good. Upon hearing their accent I ask if they are Kiwis (New Zealanders). The lady says yes and asks where I was from. I say most recently Auckland but grew up in Wellington. She said
so did she. I said Plimmerton. She said “so did I”. I said I lived in Karehana Bay, Plimmerton. She said “so did I”! She said “I grew up in Gordon Rd”. I said “No way! I lived at number 64′! She said “I lived at Number 11”! Unbelievable!
I have since found out that the couple was the NZ Ambassador to Thailand and his wife!
