Siam: The Problem With Kru Tim


Kru Tim was a teacher at the school who had gone insane. She was dismissed from the school but later came back, claiming she was well. She toured the town in taxis and followed young men. There were rumors that Nai Nong, an evangelist from Bangkok who was touring with Kenneth, was having an affair with Kru Tim. Nothing could be done about the situation so Kenneth sent Nai Nong back to Bangkok.
