    ^ Fled... to Pattaya!

    Maybe you tried it as well!


    We eventually got Coco's passport sorted and she was all set to go on holiday.

    We even arrived 3 hours early... but she was stymied right at the end.

    Why couldn't Coco go on holiday? Location No. 38... Where is Coco?

    An easy one for our overseas competitors!

    Nev... you'd better do this by PM - (or even repo comment!) - it's just too easy for you.

    Maybe I finally got one. Its the Airplane Park. Restaurant and ground to walk around. I knew that but had to google the address.


    Airplane Park Korat is located at the new Rim Park. Entrance to Suranaree University of Technology or SUT

    Exactly right AO... Korat Airplane Park. Well done... a new winner! Green owed.

    Coco couldn't go on holiday because this plane has no engines... it's going no-where.

    This was the Orient Thai 747 that was parked up at Korat Airport for several years, before a businessman bought it and turned it into an attraction on the other side of the city.

    You can now have an expensive coffee and piece of cake and look at the plane.

    Been there... done that, and to be honest it gets a bit boring after 10 minutes or so. I can't really imagine why anyone would go back a second time... unless it's to take a photo of your dog!

    This attraction has opened up again after the Covid lockdown and Coco was eager to visit.

    But it was yet another place that wouldn't allow her in.

    Location No. 39... Where is Coco?

    ^ Yep... too easy.

    That's the 'Big Five' you can see above Coco's head; Rhino, Leopard, Elephant, Lion & Buffalo, all of which reside within the zoo. You can see the big cats being fed at 11am... if you're allowed in.

    Very well done, green owed!

    I'm sure I read somewhere that striped shirts make you look thinner, but this photo disproves that bollox!

    This is the biggest roundabout in Korat...
    And the smallest.
    It's also the busiest roundabout in Korat...
    And the quietest.

    How can that be?

    It's the ONLY roundabout in Korat... at least that I know about! Location 40... Where is Coco?

    Yes... 40 (FORTY!!!)... and there's plenty more to go. Who would have thought Korat had so much going for it!

    Extra greens if you find any other roundabouts I don't know about!

    Only if the stripes go up and down. Horizontal stripes make you look fatter.

    ^ Oh shit... I just looked on Google Maps and there seems to be a few roundabouts down there I didn't know about.

    Can we settle on two greens owed for the lot?

    Here's another clue to wrap this one up before you find any more secret roundabouts!

    This is one of the only roundabouts in Korat!

    ^ Perfect Nev...

    And here's the proof!



    A green is on it's way... eventually!

    There's cafes and food places springing up all over the place in this area...

    There's also another roundabout in another housing development that I've been to. I forget the name at the moment.

    Vertical stripes as Nev says and you are always better off with black and not those light, bright Songkran shirts

    Though, flawed theories.
    One will find it nearly impossible to disguise a naturally distinguished lard-ass. A culturally and biological disposition that might be difficult to remedy.

    Eat better/right. Regular and simple bodily fitness.
    Resolved. Well.....for some, perhaps.

    The trouble with wearing black shirts in the heat is they absorb the heat.

    A bright lightly vertically striped shirt might flatter your fine figure when next out with Coco.

    Not sure how Coco's thread has become about her master's weight...

    Not having a bright, lightly vertically striped shirt I'll have to either lose a few kilos, or easier, just keep my gut out of the photos.

    I failed in that today...

    It was so hot that Coco wanted a swim at this famous landmark in Korat's old city. Sadly swimming is not allowed, and besides, there are some big monitor lizards lurking around the margins.

    Where was Coco disappointed not to cool down... Location No. 41... Where is Coco?

    ^^^ Wow... even the street number! Beyond the call of duty.

    Yes, we were on San-Prasit Road looking across the Sa Kaeo City Park.

    If you click on Sa Keao in Google Maps it is stated to be 'Good for kids'. Knowing how few Thai kids swim I would have thought it the last place to take children. Don't reckon the water's all that clean either.



    ^^ Aah... a bit late but as you had the magic 'Sa Keao', I guess I can owe you a green also.

    ^ Sorry Jeff, but keep that thought... it may win a green next week!



    So, any idea what we did just beforehand?

    ^ Had a proper steak cooked at Chez Andy's by someone who knows how to competently use a skillet?
