Any further and we will have to get a Lao visa to do our 90 day reports.

That is good news Bergen, thanks for the heads up. A friend sent me this story in the Australian mainstream press which made me chuckle in more ways then one. http://www.traveller.com.au/ubon-ratcha

I wish to thank Peppers, Wrong Way, N' Joy, T&C Kitchen and the Lai Thong Hotel for their support in allowing me to display a poster in their establishment announcing this meeting. They will always be at the top of my list. Thank you.

I think you forgot a place Larry =)

Glad to see you got your posters up in so many places. I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say we're happy to help get the word out. It was great having you and the whole crew over on Friday.

Your are so right Brent. I apologize and will have to make it up to you somehow. The place I forgot was the Outside Inn, run by Brent, his lovely wife and the crew that makes the evenings enjoyable. If you want some good food, stop by and have a bite.

Thank you for this great information. Ubon is truely developed in certain areas.

I expect we will pay a 50 baht surcharge at the airport. I hope the parking congestion eases with folks keeping their cars at home. The parking at the airport currently is all over the place.

I am informed that Ubon is the only city outside of Bangkok to have metered taxis. This being the case, we Ubonites must have only the third airport in Thailand after the two Bangkok airports to have metered taxis.

We should be very proud of this. Big international cities like Phuket and Chiang Mai can not even break the taxi-mafia strong hold.

Big Isaan cities such as Khon Kaen, Udorn and Korat don't have metered taxis or at least not to the airports.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Go go Ubon.

Phuket airport has metered taxi's. As soon as you get outside turn right and there is a rank at the end of the building. Usually between 50-100 baht cheaper to Patong. Usually give that as tip. Use them because l despise the Tuk Tuk mafia their.

The first meeting to form a U.S. Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) post here in the Ubon (Issan region) was held today. Had 9 people in attendance which is ok for the first meeting. Hopefully the numbers will increase as the months go by. Currently the meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of each month. The next meeting will be the 21st of April, 10:00 - 12:00 at the Lai Thong Hotel lobby meeting room.
