Visitors from up North

Kris from Khemmarat

Kris and Cat

Pook, Kris ,Cat

It's always great to have visitors come for a day , but it's a special treat when it's a fellow blooger or a reader of your own blog , and just this Thursday we had the privilege of having Kris and his lovely wife Cat and her sister Pook, from the village of Khemmarat in the Providence of Ubon Ratchathani come to Whang Pho for a day visit . We meet them at the train station and had a great lunch and then back to our home for a couple hours visit and a little fruit snack before taking them to Kanchanaburi for a van ride back to Bangkok .It was a short visit as the train from BKK had engine trouble and they were late leaving the big city and spent about 5 hours on the train , needless to say if you know anything about the country trains here in the LOS you know that their behinds were tired from the sitting and the hard seats .We had a great (short) time with them and we promised each other it want be the last visit . Thanks Kris and Cat for taking out in your busy schedule to come by our way . Malcolm and Ciejay

Malcolm smashing photos and Kris's visit must have been a great occasion for all of you. It's a pity the delayed train from the Big Mango cut the meeting a little too short.

BTW, what blog is Kris the author of?

Mike said...

Malcolm does Chris blog or is he a reader?

Malcolm, this looks like a really good day for you all. It's nice to be immersed in rural life, away from it all (I'm thinking here of some of your recent posts about the folks back in the States, but nice too when someone looks you up like this.

Blogging friends are like having pen friends before we all had computers. So exciting when you actually get to meet in real life.

Hi Malcolm I have popped across to your blog to let you know that I have replied to your comment about my photo looking up into the ferns and trees on our Beautiful World blog.
I will have a look around your blog now that I am here.
Have a lovely day.
