Photos of the Day — Nov 24

Back in Ubon Ratchathani for a bit of nostalgia. We ended our bike trip here seven years ago, and took the train back to Bangkok. Kat and I have so rarely returned to a place we’ve been (too many other places to discover), so it was nice to be pulling into a city that was somewhat familiar to us. I wandered through the night market as they were setting up. The guy who was selling all sorts of sweets from his cart was inundated with bees. Not just a few, but thousands. It looked as if they were going to establish a hive right around his cart. His calm reaction made me believe that this is a normal situation. He went about his business, brushing the bees aside when he needed to, getting ready for the Saturday night crowds. -w

The Candle Parade float replica towers above the central park of Ubon. The gold glows against the night sky while locals picnic, play football (soccer), practice their swing dance steps and enjoy the cooler night air. -k.

    Spelling is Ubon Ratchathani of course, not Uban.

    Happy travels,

    Biker Bill, now in Nan

  • Thanks Bill. You can add pedaling editor to your list. Hope all is well. We are cooling off at a restaurant in Kratie after taking the slow route down the Mekong. Hard miles, but worth it!
