Title

Siam: Health Insurance and Visitors to Trang

Description

Kenneth tells about a life-insurance plan he bought in Bangkok. The plan was to have 11,000 worth policy by the time he was 52. They ate up that money during a year long unemployment (Margaret believes they kept part of it). Kenneth and Margaret talk about this period of extreme want, and the visit of a typical American couple they received for Christmas.
