    Oh yes Buntharik, we passed through there before spending the night at Kantharalak.

    The night before we spent in Khong Chiam looking out over the three color river. Bloody fantastic that was . Pictures coming up further into the thread.

    Great area down that way, my first time down there, next time Eh Jim.

    Its was sort of like a museum on the upper floors with artifacts and stuff like that.

    These Tile things depicting Issan life were very well done, this one of around ten, all different.

    Its seems that everywhere I looked everyone was driving a new motor. This beauty had about 1 KLM on it. Khon Kaen is quite the progressive city. New high rise going up all over the joint.

    So it was time to leg it back into town and see what we come across. 15 minutes later we come across the annual dog show. This was great as we both love dogs so settled in for a look see.

    These dog types always seem to be looking up the dogs bottom. Maybe they are expecting the dog to shit out a gold nugget, I'm not quite sure what its all about .

    I reckon this tart is trying to figure out whether she will give the thing a pat or throw it on the BBQ.

    The Thais seem to love their dogs as long as they ain't from the Soi. A couple of nice ridge-back pups right there.

    The water front area is being developed with a very nice large walk way, its joined onto the existing one and pushing down the river front. Will be real good when finished.

    My hand bag knows the drill, after a hard days touring Dr Terence is rewarded with a couple of large beer Chang Classics in a big bucket of Ice. This is non negotiable, good girl this one.

    The next day the girl has another famous Wat picked out that the Thais get all blowie over so off we go. This one was actually programed into my GPS so a piece of piss to find. Quite a way out of town. Nice clear day it was.

    This one was a real old mother and a protecting roof built over the remains.

    These remains were situated in a large wooded area with many large trees. Great environment and interesting visit. I really enjoy the gardens and trees.

    This is our hire car, a little Toyota Yaris Auto. 1.2 litre engine and went like the powers of piss, great fuel economy and perfect for touring. I always go for the Vios or Yaris. 1000 baht a day it ran at with full Insurance. Anyway we are of to Sala Kaeo Ku just out side Nong khai.

    This is a must see, my second trip here, last maybe 8 years ago. It was built over a life time by some Thai guy who seemed to have to much money and a nasty habit of taking Ya-Ba for inspiration. Real hard to discribe this place let alone show it in pictures.

    Enter in through the out door. Crazy arse place this one but the scale of the building is awesome. Something to actually ponder over.

    The place is rammed full with these giant models of god knows what. Some out of the wizard of OZ or maybe inspired by gold topped mushrooms.
