Hi apskip, I am interpreting TARA3 started filming on 18 May 2008 based on the blog of Andrew. (Sorry, I am still familiarizing with the features here. I still don't know how to put a link.LOL)
He posted the picture of the racer eating bugs in an entry dated 19 May 2008. But he gave an account on what he saw in a blog written on the 22nd. When Georgiapeach and I e-mailed him, he told us that the date he saw them was either on the 20th or 21st. He mentioned that "he can't exactly tell the date". He is really confused!
Why did I say 18th of May? Well, what I understood from reading his blog written on the 19th, he was in Bangkok on the 18th at noon. Then, he went to Khao San Road in the afternoon where he saw the filming.
Take a look at this statement "So since today (19th) is a holiday that means no alcohol being served, so we're going to have to find something else to do... we heard from a girl that they sell scorpions to eat on the street at night, so maybe I'll have to see if I can find some of those, we might go see some Thai boxing we heard about also. "
Note: Alcohol is not served on the evening of 19th.
But on these first lines of his blog, "Got here around noon yesterday, the flight was long but could have been worse. We got in a taxi to Khao San Road, it's where pretty much all the tourists stay, and it is crazy. Thousands of people walking around, everyone trying to sell you something, but everyone is friendly about it. We took it easy yesterday during the day, bought a few things and got to know the area. I had my first massage too... it was alright, alot of elbows just digging into your back though... I dont think they knew exactly what they were doing. Then we decided to grab a bucket from a cart on the side of the street. A bucket is Red Bull, Coke and some sort of Thai alcohol poured into a bucket, and it is gooood. We sat there for a few hours talking with the locals and joking around with the kids that sell things on the street. Then we got the kids to point us out a real live ladyboy across the street, with a guy sitting there with his arm around her acting cool... little did he know... "
So I am seeing that he went and saw the filming at Khao San Road on the 18th and had alcohol on that evening.
We'll Slowhatch can see the exact time the photo was taken. Maybe he could tell us.
