Images Of Isaan

Recommended Posts

Our land in Ubon Ratchathani.  Just started building our house a couple days ago.

Prajek park in Udon Thani.

 

The first is looking north across the park.

Nice. Are some of those images of Chaiyaphum province? I love Issan. Gorgeous scenery, open vistas, nice people, more tropical weather, and cooler winters. Look forward to retiring up there someday soon.

Drove past this on one of the back roads in Udon.

 

Taken only yesterday, they were preparing for a Film night.

 

I thought it was so lovely, & the tech from many years ago.....

 

I love Isaan.

It has become a rare occasion.

Can't even remember how many years ago I saw one in our village. That was an attraction before they all had digital TV, flatscreens, smartphones etc.

They had a film in our village last month. The first for a couple of years. Absolutely no-one watched it. The two organisers were out of it on Lao khow. It all finished at 10pm; fortunately.

 

The smart phone has rendered this - once common, and lucrative business - obsolete.

Intrigued with Isaan and definitely on my bucket list, I just went through all the pages right from the beginning, a decade and a half ago. Great fun, interesting.

It also showed the advancement of digital photography (most pictures probably taken with a smart phone). The early ones (about first 5 to 8 years) were pretty low resolution. The last half, much higher. Enjoyed them all though.

Nice that this thread is still alive, unlike (I assume) many of the posters as there were many names/avatars that I didn't recognize.

Our house, right on the outskirts of Amphur Muang, Loei.

Phu Bo Bit off in the distance from our porch.  We don't own the swamp.

Baan Vinai, the Hmong refugee camp in Loei in 1981 (?).  It was close to Pak Chom, up by the Mekong river. I worked there in 1979/80.  The population grew tremendously after I left.

Me too,

I'm living and I am the only farang in my village since 14 years .

My village is at about 12 km from Sawang Daen Din in Sakon Nakhon province .

I like/love to cycle everywhere around it ;

yesterday I was on the road to go to Charoen Sin ;

I saw a little red road I never went on ...

About 3 or 4 km I discovered that , in a sort of " farm " where people are working on big trucks

And that 

 

P1080351_red_roads_close_Sawang.thumb.JPG.9802ae9992fba192812e010219843c72.JPG

 

I continue the path and I fall on it;
the photo was taken once the gate crossed on one side because it is fixed on the ground.

In fact the owners or tenants of the so-called "farm" have simply privatized this public road;
A few hundred meters from my village, a farmer did the same thing with a path on which I walked with my dogs a few years ago.
