Thai/Lao Smile
When I first decided to look for a wife in Thailand , back in the late 1990s, I
learned that Thai women do not particularly care for facial hair. So, I cut my
mustache off, one that I had been wearing in two or three different styles
since the beginning of ...

Lao Trip 11.3 - Tana Village
Thanks to a friend, I was able to visit and hang out in a
typical Lao village as long as I paid for the beer. OK by me! It was an exciting 20 minute motosai ride from PL2 to Tana Village .
Great scenery and anticipation of what I might find. Once we got the...

Lao Trip 11.1 - Ken Thao
My 11 th trip to Lao, in early June 2015, began
unusually poorly. On the bus from Nong Bua Lamphu to Muang Loei , the
bus attendant insisted I hadn’t paid the first time, so I paid him twice. I’m
sure it was a rip-off. At first I thought it might be that he...

Bann Nah 22 - Gotta Watch These Guys!
I grew up in New England and the North
Shore of Long Island , New York .
Nearly every wooden surface was painted. Only exceptions were the school’s

senior high, were replaced wi...

Lao Trip 11.4 - Heuan Phair
While hanging out in PL2 , I did my usual
of visiting the market in Pak Lai, buying food off the street, and visiting the
places I usually stop in and have a beer, like the Rimkhong restaurant and Heuan Phair. I even checked out that new karaoke place in
Pa...

Lao Trip 11.2 - Hello, Seng Chalerm!
The highlight of this trip to Lao was a day’s homestay in a
Lao village about the same size as mine back in the Isaan. Before that, though, I was very pleased to find that
fortunes had once again visited the Seng
Chalerm . All the way coming from Ken Thao t...

Barbara areas in the United
States , I find myself preparing for my trips
to Lao in similar ways. For instance, I clip my nails on my feet and hands. The

Bann Nah 21 - Outside Walls
Shera imitation
wood planks are fibre cement composites of natural fibres, bonded in a
silicate structure. The sidings are autoclaved wood-grain. I discovered – quite by chance – that there are packs of the autoclaved
