Isaan 13

Location: Nong Plong Village, Thailand


Neighbor's rooster. There seemed to be hundreds of them!

View from the roof-top connector between the attic bedrooms (where I stayed) and the bathroom. I needed to go outside for a few steps to use the upstairs bathroom.

Learning to make Kow Pad (fried rice). This was actually a class for the students, but Sammy and I were invited to participate.

A garland that is used in honoring people or for religious occasions. I think that this is one that was prepared by teacher friend Gan and her students to be presented to us at the celebration the night before I left.

Further clarification...

The men teachers look in with amusement!

Tik making a mini garland. Notice the turquoise tops that teachers and students (and I) are wearing. Friday uniform. Monday is the khaki one that looks military, Tuesday is sports day/"freestyle", and the others are just dress up nicely days!

Dish it up!

Pretty veggies with the school lunch!

The fish that I fried the previous night at Tawan's. We had fried fish like this frequently as one of several dishes on the table. We just helped ourselves to pieces of it.

Teacher lunch in library. This is the group I typically ate with. (Sammy's stay as a volunteer only overlapped with mine by a few days at the end).

School lunch. The one in the right foreground is Palo Kai, hard-boiled eggs in a sweet syrupy sauce (kind of like the spare rib sauce at the Yangtze in Montreal). I particularly liked Palo Gai, the same recipe except with chicken.
