Hip Surgery

I had hip surgery at Udon General Hospital on 19 December. It took a little assertiveness but I got all my questions answered. The doctors and nurses go to the same schools and I find they approach their patients in a professional way. Dr. Sorapong operated on me. He also receives patients at Bangko...

This Week's Shopping Deal

Actually, the last time I had delicious strawberries was when I bought them from a stand next to the strawberry patch in rural Yunan, China. They were sooooo good. I've never had a delicious Chiang Mai strawberry.

Some stores that carry wood molding in Udon have it. I think you can find it in 4" or 5" sizes with. You could try the wood store opposite the Old Nissan store on Prajack, or, the store that carries specialty hardware for cabinets up towards the town square on the same road near the Buddhist candle ...

Buying fireworks

Good question that I had to answer recently. One place is the wholesale stores along Surakan road (between Top World supermarket and Hong Fa Jakrayan bike shop. Most of the stores carry some during the end-of-Buddhist-lent season. One keeps a supply year-round; it sells Buddhist candles and things a...

Map of song taew routes.

This site still has a very nice on-line map of song taew (minibus) routes in Udon Thani. They used to be printed on the paper map too. My issue 49 doesn't show them. Anyone know where to get a printed map of Udon with song taew routes?

Baw Chaeron Hydraulic has a nice roll-away box now. They're located across from the flower stores off of Posri road near the Jane Plastic intersection.

I just got back from camping on Phu Rua with my sons. We hiked and had a great time. The sunrises and sunsets were beautiful. This time of year there are a lot of wild flowers which I enjoyed. The boys really enjoyed the waterfalls. Most trails go either up or down. I enjoyed some great star gazing....
