What's the situation in Isaan?

Recommended Posts

Factories, shops, restaurants, tourist attractions are closing down on a massive scale due to limited tourists and declining exports...although Surin rice production would be the only local fall, most of the above industries are staffed by transient workers from that area and Issan, hence impacting on local families in a big way....no money sent home for brother somchai to pay for his pick up etc

Here in Sisaket, next to Surin, people are afraid of another virus: the dengue fever!

 

I have yet to see people coming back from the big cities after losing their job, but it will happen, at the worst possible time, when there is no water left because of the ongoing drought...

 

Very hard times are coming for Thailand...and the rest of the world.

 

Right now, we are just in the phase when the seawater recedes...before the tsunami...

Here in Mahasarakham business pretty normal here certainly no panic. We are a college town and most of the students are wearing standard masks.  Maybe a little quieter in the main shopping moll.
