dirkn said: I don't see the Philippines or Thailand as being places with a lot of disposable income floating around. I mean, don't you want to open that bar someplace where you have a good pool of
customers?


Ah...But there is a lot of disposable income in Thailand...

Tourism is flourishing there...

Crusing sailors by the boatload (one of which, I hope to be someday)...Not all the Parrotheads are in the Caribbean...

As far as the Philippines go...I dunno...With the U.S. military presence gone (guaranteed customers) and a not so stable gov't, I wouldn't think the P.I. would be a great place for a bar...

Chuck - Been to the P.I., not planning to return...
