Bang Pussee, via Ubon Ratchathani 07

We (Cammy, Harry (Dad), Tio (Wife), Ploh (Sister) & myself) travel to Bangkok and get the plane to Ubon Ratchathani, where we are met by some of the family. Once we have stocked up on some supplies we head off in the minibus to the village of Bang Pussee.  On arrival we unload or things and get tucked into the beer.  After a while a few of the locals ask us to go fishing, bearing in mind its 3am we dont really give a f**k and go anyway.  We jump on the back of mo-peds and head of into the night with only torches to light the way as the lights on the bikes are no good.  We travel 1k out of the village and stop and a massive drained pool (these pools are evrywhere and are used to farm fish, some 30ft deep).
We are then given a spear and a torch and we wade into the muddy shallows and set about it.....game on.  3 fish later and we head back to the bank where some big dude has set a tree on fire so we can cook our fish, best fish I hae ever had and were surprised with Cammy as he is that fussy an eater he wont have milk with his cereal haha


Next day we go back up to where we were fishing the night before to watch some cock fights. The cocks are treated like boxers, getting rubbed down and saoked with water between rounds.
Later on in the day the English teacher comes round and invites us to watch the local school football & tak-raw matches so we grab an esky full of beer and jump in the back of the ute and go watch the sports.

The next day we are invited to a Thai wedding so we crashed thats before heading back to watch the sports again followed by a big feast when we get home as we are leaving the next day.
That night at the meal, Cammy and I are invited to the high school to teach the kids about Scotland and our culture, highlight of my trip.
