The social security office and rehabilitation center was really nice. It was nothing like I expected. We were treated very well. They had some power points to show us and they served us a drink and a snack. It was very good hospitality. Their system is similar to ours but has differences. It has the same concept but they add other things to it. This place was not just were the officials met but it was also were people would stay if they got injured while on the job. It was enormous and the facility had so many activities for them.
One thing I've really noticed while in Thailand is how nice the people are here. They are always giving even when they have nothing. It truly amazes me. Some examples are: the hotel staff gave all of us little notepads for New Years, a stranger gave us chicken when we were in a taxi on the way home from our night out on New Year's Eve, and we got a key chain from the social security office. I feel like they just keep giving. It is so nice. The other thing that I have noticed is that they are so humorous and they love practicing their English. Time is flying by here! Only a week and a half left!
