Indeed he does! I think he was a little amused and confused as we all descended on his Guest House babbling about some novel set in Thailand. Mr. Sam has been running his guesthouse since 1998, the year Rose Jamieson went to stay! There were a few other coincidences that I'll highlight at the end of the book... don't want to give anything away! Lots of Thais drive scooters and someone special in the book rides a motorcycle...so... we had a laugh pretending he might be around.
Found a phone booth, so made a quick call to Zen (he's a principle character in the novel). Of course it just happened to be a British Call Box!
I've been leaving 'a certain special someone' from the book, messages hidden in nooks and crannies all over Thailand. I hope he finds one! Now that would be spectacular!
And as for food... well I had to try Rose's favorite... Fried Green Papaya Salad
from ZabZabs! The best!
Stay tuned... as Zen's angels keep following the trail of Pursuit of the Golden Lily!
