63 kilometers on some roads I discover ..

Road 2280 direction Charoen_Sin a stop for this beautiful tree and a test " macro " on one of the flowers; don't like so much, maybe it's better to shoot in a normal program ?

26675410862_e9deaf240a_b.jpg

A few kilometers later, I turn left on rd 4067, a new road for me

I like road marks in Thailand ..........when there is something writting on them

Here, I can know I'm at 10 kilometers from the main road 2091

I have roads similar to villagefarang one's ; nobody , deserted roads with sometimes a truck or a motorbike

26743441416_bafef06a2f_b.jpg

About the truck, in the "trucks and buses " line I'm asking about the brand; it's like an old Isuzu but not the same body

26743404816_c8f8f869ae_b.jpg

Always, in Thailand, we can discover a huge something on a secondary road; here a beautiful cheddi

26768624205_20498338a1_b.jpg

belonging to this Wat

It's Thailand ; a " stop " mark in the middle of nowhere

26743206906_837105b9ab_b.jpg

And two kilometers later, arriving the main road, no stop clap2.gif

Not easy to use the laptop in the resort where we are; no table but a good WiFi tongue.png

We left our little village in Issan three days ago ;

did a stop at Phayao University to give a big bag of rice and a "printer" for computer to a nephew who is learning how to become mathematic teacher - 5 years and he just finished his first year

Thai people are often funny; on the road mark it's written 8%; maybe because they never found the other road marks where it's written 28 %

When I saw that road mark, I decided to come back, my wife was waiting for me on the main road ..

At 1 pm the same day, villagefarang came with his SUV to our Resort which is at the end of Phaya Mengrai on the road going to Khun_Tan;

I came with him my wife was tired after her cycling ride in the morning ;

and we decided to take the same road I did the morning but going at the top of the mountain;

with a bicycle, even a MTBike it's a very difficult road; sometimes percentages more than 30 % ; I'm sure , and villagefarang was sure as I was .

Yesterday , with Lai, my wife, we went to Phu_Chi_Fa with our pickup ( did 175 km in that day );

The same road as yesterday with villagefarang;

a little stop at a house where you can find a photo of the " feet mark " of Rama IX and a beautiful tree

26876516056_fefa5c81bb_b.jpg

26305676713_707e250439_b.jpg

At the top, a man with a camera and a laser printer if you want a photo of you ( if you don't like selfies )

60 baht the photo, I know it's only 5 baht in a town, but here they are Hmong and you all know how they are disconsidered by thai administration, so if we can help them a little bit ..

Ok Jimmy;

maybe somewhere in TV rules there is the answer; maybe it's 40 or 50 images maximum for one day?

And also maybe you or another admin can have a look at this ( minor ) problem ? and give access to send more image every day ..

Today was/is still the tenth of may and Lay and I were on our MTBike for a little loop ; we did 52 kilometers;

Living our resort, we had a stop less than 2 km later ; on our left side a beautiful " Big Bouddha "
