driving to Nong Kiau

10 06 2013

There really isn’t much to report about this day of our trip – it was all about driving to the next destination. It wasn’t a dull day, we made lots of toilet (or Happy Room, as TL put it) stops and had little strolls through markets. At one of the stops TL bought a gigantinormous watermelon for the group – probably the best watermelon I’ve ever tasted.

Our rooms at the next stop were wooden cabins on the steeply banked riverside.

Okay, maybe not so modest!
It was wonderful to lie in bed and listen to the sound of the river. And the birds. And the insects.

That’s the river, and on the right hand bank you can see our cabins.

The food at this hotel was particularly delicious too.
