Trying to replace the old Expat Telegraph Mentor service.

Many of you will remember with some fondness the old Mentor service run by the Expat Telegraph as part of their website, whereby volunteers agreed to answers readers' questions about whatever locale they currently called home. However, after slowly falling into neglect-based decline, the Telegraph organisation has finally abandoned its once excellent "Mentor" service. I used to be the Telegraph Mentor for Japan and then for Hua Hin, and I would like to continue this role with or without the Telegraph. Therefore, if anyone wants any kind of information about either Hua Hin or about Thailand (or even about Japan, though I haven't lived there since 2005), please fell free to ask. As I rarely get the chance to check out the forums (Internet reliability is very different here to Japan!), I recommend you use the Hua Hin FAQ link on my blog, which can be found at
This isn't just a plug, it is also a genuine attempt to continue the information service that the Expat Telegraph USED to offer. (Could its demise be linked to the conviction of the Telegraph's former boss, I wonder?)

All the best
