We are now more and more aclimatized with the new culture and the weather is easing off. To our surprise we welcome thunders with open arms! We needed some relax and watching sunsets and having some introduction to the wildlife of Thailand was additional bonus. This was both curious = lizards everywhere and frustrating = mosquitos which liked Xabi a lot!

Apart from business focused approach people in Thailand seem very friendly, helpful and very relaxed and the country so far well developed, in some aspects more than the Western world.. it is joyful to try to follow Isan lifestyle..

Striving for more adventure We are now heading to more remote parts of Thailand..

Mekhong plynie wolno a wraz z nim nasze umysly.. Coraz latwiej byc podroznikiem minimalista, zwlaszcza kiedy przyjemnie wieje albo po burzy. Rzeka ma tez zle strony - chmary komarow na ktore tylko kotek pomaga (porada napotkanych podroznikow...). Bedziemy tez probowac szukac herbaty z Citronelli.. Napotkani miejscowi sa w wiekszosci przypadkow bardzo uprzejmi i pomocni, a sam kraj bardziej rozwiniety. Na razie jeszcze wiele sie uczymy. Po tygodniu relaksu znow jestesmy gotowi na przygode, wiec jutro ruszamy troche mniej uczeszczanym szlakiem w kierunku polnocy..

Estamos ahora cerca de la frontera de Laos en Nong-Khai relajandonos despues de Bangkok mirando como fluye el Mekhong. Estamos acostumbrandonos al clima y la forma de vida en tailandia. Parece ser un pais bastante relajado y mas desarrollado de lo que pensabamos. Muchos mosquitos, parece que me tienen mania y lagartos.

Seguimos nuestro camino hacia el norte siguiendo rutas menos turisticas, veremos......
