Out to the farm for another attack on the bamboo.
George came to visit and just as he was leaving John arrives with tales of Laos.  Trapped in Khamnadie George doesnt enjoy hearing of other peoples travels and leaves us to it..
Early afternoon we go and visit George & Wan so that I can briefly use his internet.  Jai's passport was given to a courier in Bangkok this morning.  In the hope that it might arrive tomorrow we will postpone our trip to Laos for a day.
Go out to the farm to give some water but no work today.
I go and fuill up with petrol, buy a couple of cans of beer then go and pick up George to take him on holiday for an hour.  All around Thailand you see endless spirit houses outside most properties but in Khamnadie you would be lucky to spot more than two or three.  The village has a spirit house for everyone about 1/2km outisde in the ricefields.  George has never seen this and didnt even know it was there so this is our first stop.  It gets visited once a year just before the new rice gets planted and at the moment is all looking a bit rundown and in need of tarting up.  I have only been here once before about 7 years ago and then it was heaving with people eating, making offerings and letting off fireworks.  We continue up the hill through the rubber plantations till we come to the earth dam.  We stop here to enjoy the scenery and drink a beer in the quiet.  Out of nowhere 4 locals appear and stand staring at us spoiling the moment.  I bike to the other side of the dam, stop again, and we finish our beers in peace.  Descend the back of the hill to the neighbouring village of Pak Chong and back along the main road.
