I thought this had been up loaded and posted to twitter, but no. Later in the day I was driving out of Nong Khai town and spotted this Lao vehicle driving down the roa. It does have Lao license plates. Now a Lao government worker makes, not a whole lot of money, but they sure must be frugal and good savers to buy a Hummer. I wonder what the tax on this baby is in the old PDR?
Early evening I was sitting with a friend and posted, as I usually do, the official start to that evening. Not only did it post on twitter and I could actually see the timeline moving and a post from @qandrew to which I was actually able to reply and attach a photo that had been posted earlier in the week to twipic
As often happens in the village a bit of this and a bit of that was added and a few beers and GPRS signal came and went and came and went.
And I saw I had a msg from@JackPrinya on the twitter and tried to reply but could not
So I hope you read this Jack and yes I think it is now called Darlie.
Why not fix the roads throughout isaan? I'll gladly send the government all my geotagged photos of the region.
It has been a real gift to be able to try to tell people about the real isaan, the good and the bad, the funny and the sad. And I look forward to living out my days with my thousands of brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews.
And now thanks to modern technology, sometimes able to communicate instantly, sometimes with so many people on places like twitter or even the blogs
So that's mty story and I am sticking to it.
