Ok re this:

"Ok Jimmy;

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

I have asked the question at HQ... we'll see what feedback we get!wink.png

BTW you've posted some lovely images in your What I see, section! thumbsup.gif

A long time I don't send photos here;

Coming back from villagefarang province, wonderfull one ! ,we left Phaya_Mengrai at 5 am thursday 12th of may coming back to Udon Thani where we arrived end of afternoon the same day .

Looking for a good hotel not far from Centara which is , I think, very expensive, we passed the night at the Pannarai hotel in the " farang" street;

it's between the Central Plaza and the railway station ;

A nice room, a private parking for the pickup

26380241643_c172511e5a_b.jpg

26378927714_e439ed5cbb_b.jpg

26984182405_e05603ceac_b.jpg

26710877250_b2bca99e3c_b.jpg

And a big breakfast in the morning

26951145906_eab920c1ed_b.jpg

where I have eaten something which was not good for my stomach;

I think it was the ham ;

I ate an egg and my wife also, a salad and my wife also

and she was not ill;

but she didn't ate some pieces of ham blink.png

In the middle of afternoon, I was suddenly in fever and incapable of doing anything ..

Ok, a turista, so I can eat much kao thom and in 24 hours it's finished .

It was not a turista but an alimentary intoxication;

one and half a day in the Sawang hospital with many blood , urine and "ki" exams, electroencephalogram, chest X-ray... and a nice room for me , formidable ( Aznavour );

I came back home yesterday afternoon ;

I'm still a little bit in the sky; lost 6 kg in one day !

Even listening my favorite music on U-Tube ( Hans Zimmer & Lisa Gerrard ), difficult to write on the laptop .;

so excuse me if not often here on TV forum .

Some other photo of Udon Thani

Central Plaza at 8.30 am saturday 14

26951105406_cd9070818f_b.jpg

The Centara Hotel behind the Central Plaza, same hour,

26379207474_9a53d61f28_b.jpg

Edit ; the price of the room at the Pannarai hotel : 1800 baht; surely less expensive on Booking or Agoda

Yesterday ,We had a big storm and much water;

and " rebelote" this afternoon biggrin.png ;

Each time no internet ( I have a WiMax connection ) and sometimes no electricity ;

not easy to write and send photos on the forum;

I'm still a little bit weak after my disease, so I stay at home , eating drugs and vitamines .

Only one photo today;

two of my dogs sleeping on the floor at one foot of my chair ;

they are so little 5 years and 2,5 kg for the black and white

6 months and 1 ,2 kg for the brown

On the road from Han Noi ( not Hanoi whistling.gif ) - road 22 and road 2239 to Chaiwan

Never knew if these are petroleum tankers or for liquid sugar; there is a huge sugar mill on the other side of the road

26584039783_22b0252f72_b.jpg

Same road, and if I had ( not a hammer tongue.png ) but a Fuji X Pro 2 I'm sure the colors will be better

27120084131_d7307b4ceb_b.jpg

I think so but in Thailand it's never the fault of the driver;

it's , u have the choice :

- brakes failed

- it was raining

- somebody was talking to the driver

- and so on ...

99 kilometers today thumbsup.gif

clap2.gif

How can you do that? facepalm.gif

I bought a MT bike about 4 months ago, and I only put maybe 20 km in it... on flat roads around home! cheesy.gif

Hot, tired, sweating... OMG! Not a pleasant experience...

...

Well, maybe I have to give it another try... whistling.gif

Cheers,
