Where I stayed
Our first stop was O's family's chicken farm in the Chiang Yuen District of the Maharasarakham Province. Her parents welcomes us into their home, fed us watermelon, and invited us to walk around the chicken farm. They have many, many, many chickens - around 2000 of them - and every morning, her mom goes to the wholesale market to sell the eggs for that day. We dropped Da-Wan and Yuro off with O's parents, then hit the road for our next stop - Koh Sam Phi Park. We bought some bananas and headed into the park to see the monkeys
After the monkey park, we headed to "Pizza Company," a restaurant in downtown Mahasarakham. It was a lot like a Pizza Hut, only cheaper and with stranger pizza toppings. The veggie pizza had corn and pineapple - yum! After we ate, we window shopped in the Sermthai Shopping Center, then went to Lotus (a grocery store) to pick up toiletries for the group. Afterwards, we headed back to O's parents' house to pick up the dogs.
We headed back to Khon Kaen, dropped the dogs off at O and Nan's apartment, and stopped at Big C (like Target) to do some grocery shopping for the week. Then we headed to the night market to meet O's parents so that she could pick up a piece of paperwork she'd forgotten earlier in the day.
After I headed back to the dorm, I answered email and worked on the proposal a bit until around midnight.
