Welcome to Sakon Nakhon, Thailand 25.05.12

Guess this might be the first on a number of Sakon Nakhon drive arounds. People ask why they see the name of this province and town spelled "Sakol".

When a thai sees the L their tells them N since that's the rule. Like anal in thai is pronounced anan. Anyhow here we see one of the narrow main roads into city center
