...when I came here. My laptop is down (and out) so it's been taking me some time to get to a few reviews I've been meaning to write. This place was one of those - actually, especially one of those. Usually, if I don't write one within a day or two of the experience, I let it pass and move on to something else. For some reason, I've been wanting to say a few things about this interestingly put together, small museum themed on the famous/infamous/notorious - there are too many adjectives coming to mind right now - Patpong area. A visit to this somewhat quaint, somewhat uncurated (I believe) museum is certainly a unique diversion from the hedonistic nightlife/entertainment the area mostly offers and that is well documented at this museum. What is also well documented here is the American War in Vietnam, particularly the bombing of Laos which seems to occupy a good part of the content of the displays and video that was shown. I would say that it was a bit of overkill with that focus. While certainly interesting and I definitely learned some things - Tony Poe for example - that I didn't know before, I guess I felt some discomfort that there is so much about the war put out. I realize the GI's - which evidently included a group of shady American government characters - came to Patpong for R&R and whatnot and these people certainly flavoured the area, but maybe the space and time would be better spent on more about say the girls (and the boys, and the ladyboys) who "enrich" the Patpong experience for whomever is visiting. I wanted hear about their "hunger" for whatever brought them here to do this work they do. You know something, I don't why felt discomfort about all the war stuff - probably just some abnormal insecurity about my American identity inherent in me. Don't ask; I don't even know what I mean. So, the museum did also cover the history of the Chinese family who started it all in Patpong as well as some things about the clubs and "entertainers" I was talking about before. There was an American gentleman with an off-beat sense of humor who served as our guide. I remember coming to like him way better as the tour progressed than I did when it started out when I asked him if he was the owner of the place. He replied something like he only takes out the trash here. I believe he has more significance to the museum than that. I deeply respect and find intense dignity in those who do take out the/our/my trash and keep things clean for those of us who are blessed and not forced by life's circumstances to do this work. Negative comments even in jest about such work has always put me off. That being said, I could see during the tour he is a good guy though. And also for some reason, I got the impression he helps out people here in Thailand. Well then again, if you know me, I'm more times than not wrong about people so... So there was also an enchanting woman here with the unforgetable, somewhat seductive name of Apple who was kind enough to take care of a little scrape on my arm that was slightly bleeding. Yeah, I was distracted a little from the museum's content by her. Yeah. I think good people run this museum, and they are on some kind of journey themselves in setting-up, building, curating, maintaining (whatever) this I would say "must-see" attraction in Bangkok. Man, did it take me a long time to write this review. I'm doing it on a tablet using a separate keyboard and mouse. I'm so glued to using the Windows platform and find writing more tedious using Chrome or Android or whatever this thing I'm on is. And I'm sickened with the thought of going out and having to buy a new laptop. The older I get, the less though I want to put into things, especially shopping. I complicate everything mundane.
