Lopburi Pictures


SunflowerI'm happy to report that two days after my visit to the hospital, I am mostly healed. At least it wasn't the bird flu. Or, if it was, I recovered :)

So, to celebrate my life, I've posted a few new pictures. They come from a little weekend get-away to Lopburi province. The point of the trip was to visit my friends Gey and Don and to visit the famous sunflower fields. You can read about my trip or just look at the pictures in the Pictures of Central Thailand: Lopburi photo album.

Often when I go visit someone's home in Bangkok, I see a picture of them in a huge sunflower field in Lopburi. The flowers bloom in November, and sinced I have trouble resisting a photo-op, I took the 3rd class train from Bangkok to Lopburi last night.

My friends Don and Gey picked me up at the Ban Mee (their hometown) train station and I stayed at their very cute Thai-style house. The most challenging part of the evening was explaining the meaning of: "Your house is very cozy".

The next day we visited the sunflower fields and I have to admit, it was quite impressive. Many Thai people were there visiting as well, taking pictures in the fields and snacking on sunflower seeds that were for sale along the road.

The afternoon consisted of Isaan-style lunch on a floating restaurant at a nearby lake and a trip to a big dam. Our lunch was especially good. The food we had has become my favorite Thai meal: kao neow, som dtam, and mu nam tok -- phet nit noy (Sticky rice, papaya salad, and "waterfall" pork -- but please don't make it too spicy!)

So now I have a picture of me in a sunflower field. Hopefully I can post it soon!
