Kent was in the American Army in Udon during the Viet war. He married a Thai and they lived in the US till about 18 years ago. On an early reti...

Interesting information Parrot. I could never remember prices for that long unless I documented them. One thing that has gone up that changes everything is the Thai Baht :cry:

Re: Second Ring Road Plans

The infrastructure in town has taken ZERO account of the upsurge in traffic due to the enlarged Centara and UD Town, they are suffering from the ostrich syndrome both the Town Officials and the Police , hoping it will sort itself out.

Re: War on Ants

our house is elevated about a meter above the ground and pretty tightly built. I find walking around the house a few times a week with an ant spray and eliminating any ant trails seems to do the trick. We seldom find any ants at all in the house. We also have an elevated house. Never see ants unles...

Re: Diabetes and White Rice - scary

But that would mean that sticky rice is not as bad as plain white rice then!? I would guess that Thai people in Udon/Issan area on average eat more sticky rice than white rice.

Venomous Snakes of Udon Thani

Does anyone know what snake this is? Found and photographed by our gardener a week ago. The coconut tree is hollow and I think there could be mice or rats living inside that would probably attract the snake. Looking at Michaels photos I think it looks like a Red-necked Keelback, it seems like the ta...

Motorcycle Accident, Expat

I had a feeling this might be a Swedish guy. The surname Hallin is Swedish so I googled a bit and found a facebook account "In Memory of Robert Hallin". Seems he leaves a 3 year old daughter behind in Udon. The facebook account has been opened to raise money for his daughters future education. RIP R...

Got a company in to kill them off but first they told me to dig out the mound so I got a bunch of lads from the village to get rid of it (important you find the queen and kill her). Then they came in and sprayed the whole area under the ...

MY house build to begin.

Will be no timber in the house to eat Barney I have not used any wood for building material but still after a few years we had a termite hill under the house going all the way up to the underside of the concrete flooring. I got it removed and sprayed every 2 months for a year and right now it's OK....
