rain in khonkaen

This is not right. I drive up to Baan tad early tomorrow an I hate wet oily roads. Isaan trucks sliding sideways at 120 log on friendship highway.

magha puja wat nong waeng (mobile)

the woman that appears in many of these photos has over the years assigned herself my manager at wat nong waeng, here in khon kaen. She makes sure everyone gets their photo taken and those that deserve to meet me get a few minute audience and she makes sure i am not bothered when having a chat with any of the monks. she is one of the many women throughout isaan who keep the wats ticking

magha puja khon kaen
