I traveled this route just over a week ago and that post is hereThing have improved in that the road is now passable to Kosum Phisai or to Chiang Yuen. Much land and many houses are still under water are. The forls at the souther end of this area are observing their 1 month roadside anniversary and have been told they have another to go. They are a bit less unlucky to the folks on the ring road in khon kaen as the traffic is detoured to a bypass. They are so sick of fish that bugs are big on the menu, not my favorite snack, but ya gotta be gracious.
