This is my Dad’s place. No not his house but one of the Bungalows he rents out. He has three of these and an Octagon that is a duplex, basically. Now don’t forget the other three places in the back that aren’t so plush. The one in the picture even has a kitchen too.
It is very nice and a pleasant place to stay in along with a nice country feeling. Right now we are watching the rice farmers harvest the rice. I can tell you I am glad I am not out there working it. You can tell the older rice farmers because they are permanently bent over from the long hours of planting and harvesting rice.
Dang those rice knives, or whatever they are called are sharp too. So don’t piss off someone harvesting rice. I watched a lady come out of the field and make a slight move on a banana leaf stalk and cut it like it was a straw, with no effort! So if you don’t know… A banana leaf is big and has a large stalk – ok you got it now good.
This is the real Thailand I think you can really get to know what this country is like here. We hope we can show some pictures of the village so you can see what that is like. It is different looking from the cities in America but…if you look closely, it is really the same.
You couldn’t ask for a better place in the country to use as a base to explore some of the treasures that are around here.
