This was the treat of the day yesterday. Ajaan Noi was been a monk for 49 years and was the best host at a forest wat that a person could hope for. We spent more than an hour chatting away about the "old Days" and changes in Isaan over the years. He and 2 other monks live at this small little wat just ouside town.
Please note the plastic buckets in front of the mural of Ajaan Mun. If you want to donate something to a wat, find out what is needed, these buckets are a useless commercial scam.
