No, don't worry anyone, we are not talking about me !!!

Jai tells me that her daughter is planning on marrying later this year when we return here from England.  Next month the prospective husband will be coming to visit Jai along with his parents to obtain mutual seals of approvals and to negotiate a price to sell her daughter for.  The dowry should run to about 100,000Bht or about 2000GBP.  Details are not yet too forthcoming but her appears to be a farmer from about 3 hours away from us.  No doubt I will (may) find out more later but it isnt really anything to do with me so I am leaving them all to it.  Good news is that although it is the custom for a married daughter to bring the husband to live with her parents this isnt going to happen here as she will be going to live on his farm - hurrah !!!
