Good day everyone.
Ban Krut, Thailand .. find THAT on a map.;)
Heck. I found several Ban Krut in Thailand:
City . . Province . . . . . . .Long x Latitude
Ban Krut, Changwat Surat Thani 9.0833 x 99.533
Ban Krut, Changwat Prachuap Khiri Khan 11.35 x 99.5666667
Ban Krut, Changwat Uthai Thani 5.4666667 x 99.833
Ban Krut, Changwat Nakhon Ratchasima 15.033 x102.3167
Ban Krut, Changwat Buriram 15.15 103.45..
But then, mapping is my biz of sorts. Which one is yours? -Larry
"Ban Krut, Changwat Prachuap Khiri Khan"
This is closest .. although I won't guarantee your coordinates.
But what if I had said, Ban/Baan Krud, or Ban Krood, or Ban Kruit .. all viable transliterations.:)
Great beaches .. lotsa coconuts.
"Ban Krut, Changwat Surat Thani 9.0833 x 99.533
Ban Krut, Changwat Prachuap Khiri Khan 11.35 x 99.5666667"
Um .. how far apart would these 2 be?
> [H]ow far apart would these 2 be?
252 kilometres or 156 miles, as the Siamese Fireback Pheasant flies.
Colchester Essex, oddly enough

According to the U.S. Board on Geographic Names, the "correct" native names for both locations are "Ban Krut." The USBGN also lists "Ban Krud" and "Krut" as variants for the Ban Krut at N11.35 / W99.5666667.
New Zealand here. *waves to netchicken*
Currently - Kuala Lumpuar - Malaysia (but normally UK)

The "correct native names" would be written in the Thai alphabet and can only be transliterated. I have been told that there is no exact "t" or "d" as pronounced in english. The closest is a "dt" sound, hence the variance.
The "official" sign posted near the entrance to the village is written as Ban Krood.
Likewise vowels .. represented by the "a" could be sounded as an english "ah" (so "a" or "aa" are bothe correct since it is a longer sound), while the "u" has an "ooh" sound .. apologies to the USBGN?
And you don't want to even know about glottal stops or the 5 tones.
Split my time almost evenly between Australia & Kenya.
Welcome to WW mpbodza.
New Zealand (waves to deejay and netchicken)
good on ya!
(originally from Germany, though)
originally escaped from the Peoples Republic of New Jersey (think about taxes)
You got that right! (I still live there ...)
The property taxes in Florida are just about the same as in New Jersey, however, there is no state income tax, no state unemployment tax, no state disability tax deducted from your paycheck. Comparing the two states, however, sometimes it feels like living in a third world country... Lots of things are backwards here... You know how New Jersey is just a step behind New York and Philadelphia? Florida is about 10 steps behind New Jersey...
A village near Helston, Cornwall, UK
Almost close enough to wave to ska_demon
from the cradle of civilization land.
Mmm, so far only two other Africans in this thread! Hola!
Originally from Cape Town, South Africa. Now somewhere in the Southwest of England.
Looks like there are more and more Scots joining us :)
Denmark, Scandinavia, EU
(not Denmark, Kansas, USA)
Oh, and Scandinavia (Linguistic Scandinavia, not geographic: Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Greenland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, and Finland) has parts that are not part of the EU. Whatever, just saying that I'm probably more Scandinavian than EU'ian.
From my name...pretty obvious. Just a stones throw from Brett.
England. Of course!
In the South, right by the sea...
Opelousas, Louisiana, USA (Ah pul ou sass)
