Feb 5, 2012 - In Khorat (Thailand)

We crossed from Cambodia to Thailand, and headed north to avoid the crowds going to Bangkok. Tricky, as we were the only westerners to do it. After poor advice (and our very poor Thai), we got lost on a very hot day in the border City. Moto stopped, and convinced us that he would take Nancy to the northern bus terminal (our destination by foot..), then come back for me. We were very hot, very lost, and...what the hell. He puts N's big pack in front of his knees, Nancy on the back with her small pack, and off he goes. A LONG wait later, he...

I was out on the street early and quickly sniffed out a noodle stall. Then I went to the bike shop. I had looked at the bike 5 days ago inside of the dark and cramped shop.

I parted with my $150 and soon I...

Nu – uh. Looooonnnnnnng taxi ride (traffic...

Jan 7, 2010 - Khorat

Travel to Khorat – We went for a long walk around town, looking for a bike for Tim to ride after Jen and the boys head back to USA. Mango season is just beginning, and the woman at “Mangos and Sticky Rice with coconut milk” stand had blue “jasmine” sticky rice as well as white. She said it was made with jasmine flowers, and it tasted a lot like suntan lotion! Tasty, once you got away from the whole sand/beach idea… Vinny: Cool hotel. Not my favorite on the trip, but cool. Tony: We had a nice walk around town. I wish we could have stayed...
