  1. Nong khai hotel we stayed at. Maybe just coffee for breakfast? Can't remember. https://goo.gl/maps/JPM2Acuyu362 โรงแรมดีเฮงดี Mi Chai, Mueang Nong Khai District, Nong Khai 43000, Thailand +66 42 413 595 nice and inexpensive.
  2. My apologies for the belated reply. I'm subscribed to a lot of threads. Nong khai is nice. That's all I know north of Udon. Nong khai had inns and inexpensive hotels and restaurants to walk to. Walking street should be open until 10 pm says wife. The inn is this place. Free breakfast. Wifi. https://goo.gl/maps/Z8aX7QcZGsG2 อุ่นรักริมโขง รีสอร์ท เชียงคาน Aun Rak Rim Khong Resort Chiangkhan 40/12 4 Thanon Sathon Chiang Khan, Tambon Chiang Khan, Amphoe Chiang Khan, Chang Wat Loei 42110, Thailand +66 86 859 8550
  3. Sometimes you need lawsuits that pay out big awards to get companies to notice. People bring up the McDonalds coffee story as frivolous. The eldery woman bought coffee that was at 100C boiling. She had surgery from scalding. She only first asked for money for surgery. McDonalds refused then she sued. For some reason, McD coffee was too hot for a reason. Second, they blew her off. United has a BAD policy for their process to eject people. You are on a plane and get ejected. Then some shitty security police, what do you expect. A Vietnam-American said that both sides were at fault. Okay, this was YouTube comment. Anyway, they guy ejected was a bit of a drama queen and did start a fight. But, hell, I might have done the same thing, I'm ALREADY seated and now booted? Okay, again, I understand, okay, shit happens, you get ejected. So, United was poor in its communication. Also, they should have a policy for ejections as well. Not just bring in Joe Thug security. It's as a terrible thing to have happen, BUT, BUT, its incidents and lawsuits that bring attention to crap like this. Dude, the guy was freaking injured and lost teeth, concussion. And sinus injury. You would not sue? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Hardly on the road, but saw 2 accidents. A car flew off the road and into a tree. Well, just before we arrived. It went about 40 meters off the road. Last night, 2 teenagers on a fairly powerful motorcycle, no helmets, did a wheels and flipped. They were lucky. They landed in their backs in front of us. They promptly got back up and rode away.

  5. I'm in the states and my wife works at a Thai restaurant as a manager. Anyway, if I stop by to see her, she feeds me. She brings food home. You can imagine... Anyway, I've just been trimming the calories, less carbs. But the big thing has been intermittent fasting. I do this during the week. I only eat in a 6 hour window, say 2pm to 9pm. I don't take food to work. I just drink coffee and tea. I work from 5 to 2 or so. It's working. And walking at lunch. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. First time for me. At village. Parade. Food and drink. Blessings to in-laws. Threw water. Baby powder on face and put it on thais. Rode in back of truck. Fell in a reservoir of lillypads and much. No dancing. Sat in a hut as the rain fell. Wonderfully didn't think I would like it. More to come. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. White officers focus on black passenger. Pecking order or preference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 4 people were escorted off the plane. What a mess. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. My brother works in remodeling in the states. Won't go into details as it is disgusting but the hired cleaning ladies walked out of this hoarder condo immediately and never returned. City people came in hazmat garb. I wish I could un-remember what little he told me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My favorite place to visit is Ubolrantana dam and the the Buddha temple south of there. We go there every time we go to Thailand. The temple is inside the giant Buddha. My wife is Buddhist, I'm pseudo-Buddhist. The lake seems like the biggest attraction to me here. I prefer the mountains and Loei province was absolutely beautiful. We had lunch out on the lake on a floating bamboo hut, got towed out there, it was pretty great, some reservoir out in the middle of nowhere. I've blogged this 2-week trip for family and friends and included the reservoir lake. https://thaibumbling.wordpress.com/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I don't know your taste, but I like convenient, simple, inexpensive. I stayed here some time ago when I first came to Thailand. My now-wife found it for me, not far from her house. Right across the street is the lake and they are doing some extensive fixes to the lake path, including a walking bridge across the southern part of the lake. There's a Chinese temple NE side of lake. The famous KK temple is there along with others. Downtown and Fairy Plaza within easy walking distance, a lot of great restaurants just NNE of lake and at the lake itself. There is also a fabulous BBQ and hot pot (air con) place SSW of lake (off the lake about 400 meters - we have been there 3 times in the last week, only about $6 a person. Really wonderful. Aaie buffet my wife says now. https://www.agoda.com/ruean-kanyarat-boutique-hotel/hotel/khon-kaen-th.html?checkin=2017-04-22&los=1&adults=2&rooms=1&cid=1622940&tag=acb2de28-3c52-4a8d-b7e1-e414f7e95e4d&searchrequestid=597f1e9a-e6b6-4a48-9a8a-1031bc0a90ba Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Chiang Khan is nice. Resort not far from the walking street there. Beautiful views. We were there a few days ago and only stayed one night. We stayed in Nong Khai a couple of years ago. Similar to Chiang Khan and nice in its own right. We are in Khon Kaen at the moment. It's nice around Kaen Nakhon lake. Festival time of course. Good little inn on east side of lake for what my wife says is $20 a night now. Free breakfast and lake across the street. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Tuktuk will get you there? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Quite windy in Khon Kaen. Wife retired for the night, I"m out on the porch enjoying the cool breeze. Wondering if rain is expected, we've missed it on this trip to Thailand the last week. It was raining up in Udon Thani, I hear earlier today. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
