Das Visits!
After my ninth
trip to Lao , it was time to get ready for the visit from my oldest son Das and his wife Jonnie,
who both live and work in California . It was mid-December and getting cold, which meant that
comforters over the beds were mandatory and sweatsh...

Lao Trip 9.4
I decided to leave Lao a little earlier than planned. I was
anxious to get back to the Bann Nah
project . There’s so much more you can do at home. When you’re travelling,
you see a lot and meet different people, but I’m a task-oriented person. I like to get...

Lao Trip 9.2a - Goodbye, Seng Chalerm
Yes, it’s a bit sad to see the Seng
Chalerm guesthouse – only five years ago, the best guesthouse in Pak Lai –
go down. Whether due to family changes or changes of fortune, the place is just
getting run down. It used to be that I’d have a few hangers in the...

Lao Trip 9.1a - To PL2
In early December 2014, my oldest son Das shared with us his
and his wife’s plans to visit us, from the United States , at the end of the
month. This coincided with my quarterly travel permit renewal, so I upped the
schedule on that and took time out of Tha...

Bann Nah 14 - Fresh Karma
During the three
months work stoppage between October and December 2014, I would
occasionally go out to the building site of our “country home” (aka “ Bann Nah ,”
Thai for farm house), to verify that no thefts had occurred, to clean-up a bit,
and water some...

Lao Trip 9.3
Seyadeth’s
room #8 was a nice one, actually. South and facing onto the main Nasavang/Sisavang street that runs along the Mekong , with houses on
each side of it. I could easily watch the everyday routines of some of my
neighbors from the second floor. After...

Lao Trip 9.2b
On the way to the market, I walked by a big party going
strong, with singers and overflow seating onto the riverside road; probably
celebrating a marriage, birth or other family event. I was strongly invited to
come in and drink, but it was a table of all-g...

Lao Trip 9.1b
Dropped off right at my favorite guest house in the area, I
was checked into my usual room (B15). Almost immediately, however, I was
disheartened to note Seng Chalerm’s continued slide downwards in terms of
upkeep and service. Most notable was the lack of a...

Bann Nah 15 - How Plans Grow!
Most any man that plans to build a structure with his wife’s
active participation will attest: those plans usually escalate and can take
radical turns in the process. Our “farm house” (aka “ Bann Nah ”) is
a perfect example.   I started out with a simple pl...
