    Lawrence Whiting has come to know the Thai monkeys of Phana very well in the seven years he has been running the Phana Monkey Project with his wife, Pensri. One of the things he has enjoyed most is the opportunity to introduce his monkey friends to so many Thai people as well as people from all over the world. He hopes that this book will enable even more people to appreciate these lovely creatures.

    After the monkeys had got comfortable with me… they would come up and touch my arm and then run away again. The mothers would walk up to me and set their babies down to play, and large males would bring their food and eat right next to me. They had let me into their world and I was forever changed.

    Observing them is interesting to see their behaviour and to see how much alike we are! Rita Cerdiera, PMP volunteer

    Animals have feelings, there is no doubt. Respect the monkeys, respect wildlife. Christel Gomes, PMP volunteer

  • The Chiang Mai Food Diaries… and other tales

    Chiang Mai is the most fascinating place on earth…and so is the food.
    Have you eaten a termite or met a Blacking Man? Have you seen the tree top spear fisherman, or tried to chew your way through a deep fried chicken head or a plateful of live shrimps? Have you ever wondered why there is a huge, stagnant, six mile and otherwise pointless canal running around the outer reaches of the south side of the city?
    This is a book about food, Chiang Mai, termites, sausages, ghosts, history, cooking, Islam, markets, death, noodles, forest fires, mushrooms and fish farming. (I think I’ve covered all bases).

    “Definitely on par with Bill Bryson but with more of a personal touch.” Alan, goodreads.com
    “Easily accessible, humorous and often embarrassingly honest.” Chiang Mai City Life
    “Love his books. Very funny, inspiring and interesting. Highly recommend to anyone.” Valerie, amazon.co.uk
    “Laugh out loud funny.” Sam, goodreads.com
    “He’s very, very funny and quirky and easy to read.” Ashley, amazon.com

  • Living In Chiang Mai

    After moving from the safety of middle class rural life in England, Alex and his family come to terms with living in Chiang Mai. It’s a little bit different. Well, to be honest with you, it’s about as different as having a nice quiet country walk and then deciding to see what it’s like to go ten rounds in the Saturday Night No Holds Barred Cage Fight Slaughterhouse Rumble hosted by the Creative Breaking legend Iron Knuckles Kane. It is excruciatingly different, and anybody who tells you otherwise is simply lying or well adjusted.

    Alex bumbles through another year treading prawns into the British Ambassadors carpet, unwittingly befriending The Triads, getting mixed up with the shadowy underworld of Chiang Mai’s Water Bandits and ending up in Chiang Mai’s police station.
