29 killed in bus crash in NE Thailand

Yes, yet another traffic tragedy. There's a lot of things I like about Thailand, but the lack of safety on the roads is truly atrocious. My wife and I were cut down on our motorcycle, but fortunately only received minor injuries. That was 5 years ago and we put a deposit down on a car the next day. ...

New International School Coming to Udon?

First off, I have really enjoyed reading the comments regarding education posted by the last three forum members on this thread (but not just on this thread). The term "international" is used rather haphazardly around Isaan & Thailand. To my mind, a "true" international school provides a student an ...

Laos Visa Cost (in USD) ??

Thanks for the replies, everyone. Yeah, taking the bus from KK to Vientiane is quite convenient, but it requires the purchase of the Laos visa PRIOR to getting on the bus at a cost of 1,500-1,600 baht. Also, I just need to pop over the border and back. 35 USD is roughly 1,100 baht these days. I hear...

Laos Visa Cost (in USD) ??

We're heading up to Nong Khai next week and we'll over to Laos for a bit. Can anyone confirm that the visa cost for an American is still 35 USD on weekdays? I could get the visa here in Khon Kaen at the Lao consulate, but they only accept Thai baht - 1,500-1,600. Also, where can I find some 3DM prod...

avocados here what a surprise

I just had 30kg of avocados delivered by bus from Petchabun. There are two varieties. Can someone please identify them by name and share your experience with them (I will be using them to make guacamole)?

How to get to Khon Kaen

Look for a 30 year old Mercedes Benz bus that has cracked windows, a wooden floor and ceiling fans(half of which don't work) . It will run you about 130 baht-2 hour minimum journey. Why Khon Kaen & what's her name? :lol:

Greetings from Khon Kaen City. I tried to set up a once a month pool (not snooker) competition between KKC & UDC a while back. I can't recall if it was on this forum, or the other Udon forum and I'm not going to search both to figure it out! :lol: Anyway, I haven't given up on the idea. Udon...pick ...

Romney: God created America to rule the world

God created (invented) America? I thought disgruntled Brits did. But neither Brits nor "Americans built it initially-slaves did, primarily. Mormonism: an interesting take on it, as well as other religions, can be found in a documentary called "Religulous". Here's a preview:

We've invented some of the best and worst things, depending on how you look at it. From artificial hearts to atomic bombs. Napalm, KY jelly-the list is quite long. Bubble gum would rate as one of my favorites. =D> I wish we could invent a viable 3rd political party. The 2 we have now offer little "h...
