the writers clubPosted: May 11, 2010 Filed under: articles, people, places 1 Comment
Writers, photographers, artists, and those passing through Chiang Mai, like to drop in to The Writer’s Club to see the local gang.
A restaurant and bar, it’s run by Bob Tilley, a former correspondent in Germany for the British press. The place serves as a de facto press club for the locals where everyone can see everyone and get a sense of what’s going on in Thailand and the region. I’m posting a pdf story on the club here and will link it to On The Record.
On my visit to Chiang Mai in January, I had an interesting night at the club. I talked a fair amount with Tong, and had some interesting chats.
