Bye, Bye Bangkok, Thailand
On the up side Pantip Plaza cafeteria served Thai food above ground. Seeing old friends and meeting new were the high points. There were more of both, but enough for now.
I still have a couple more views and opinions about Bangkok to bloviate, no surprise there.
I Nakhon Chai Air to Khon Kaen arriving about 1700h today and tomorrow morning back to Sakon Nakhon where once again I will be able to breathe the air abd see families out together and people not forced to live one on top of the other. I will be able to get somtam and gai yahng back in me. I did see chickens on the grill in Bangkok, but they had that urban pallor that made me nervous.
Sunday is Kathin at Wat Pa Klang Nong Phu so it will be nice to see some of the few remaining Thai Buddhists for the day.
It will be nice to hear the quiet back in Isaan, Amen!
