Re: Quintessentially Isaan (Photos)

Barney, is that Tungsrimeuang market open every morning? It looks like a ตลาดนัด/market fair.....similar to what we see at Kilo 18 every Sunday. Mrs. Shado says that many of the vendors are the ones who had spots at dtalat thetht sa baan saawng (ตลาดเทศบาลสอง) on Phosri Rd. and moved to Tungsrimeua...

Re: Ornithology Udon Thani

A few years ago we had this raptor hanging around our home in tambon Ban Jan. Not sure which one it is but nice to watch. The photos are not so great as had to use the zoom. I think it might be a common kestrel. https://i.postimg.cc/XYrnBbVT/IMG-3049.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/W4ML0pxf/IMG-3051.jpg ht...

Re: Best places within 5 hours of Udon

Wat Phrathat Pha Sorn Kaew is about 4/5 hours away and the drive there is through scenic country. Blue Sky Resort nearby is nice I second this suggestion. Phu Tub Berk is in the same vicinity and is also a very interesting and scenic excursion. Blue Sky Resort can also make suggestions for local ea...

Re: DeWax ear drops

If you go the pharmacy across from the military hospital, there are several located there. If one doesn't have it you can try another just few meters away. However, if it's more convenient for you to look elsewhere I would think that most all of the pharmacies in town carry the product.

Re: DeWax ear drops

I'd think that most any pharmacy would carry this. I got some at the pharmacy directly across the road (Thanon Tahan) from the military hospital.

No I haven't tried them yet. Hope you find them suitable. Doubtful that you will find any that match Nordic blueberries though. Canadian berries may come close. I've eaten really delicious fresh wild blueberries while in Canada.

The Chiefs beat Bud Grant and the Vikings in Super bowl IV. The only Super Bowl win for the Chiefs until last year. Grant was the quintessential football coach and he's still around at age 93.
