What is Progress in Northeast Thailand, An Isaan Opinion, Beung Thung Sang, Khon Kaen
I enjoy the Park at Thung Sang Lake in Khon Kaen. I find the artwork intriguing, amusing and just plain enjoyable. It is a good place for morning exercise a change of pace from Beung Kaen Nakhon. Not a bad place for people watching either. I had heard a number of stories going on about the lake and the folks that live around it, but never anything substantial. While doing some research today I happened upon this the attached PDF about "Thung Sang Lake." I guess I should not have been surprised and a good reminder that what is called "Progrees" in Thailand is not usually very progressive. Another reminder to check the cost of modernization in Thailand.
