Isaan taster

My brother Tim at one of the smaller temples at Phimai in Isaan
Here's a taster of my Isaan adventures. Lots more pictures and stories to follow but I said that after my visits to Banteay Chhmar, Koh Kong and so on, and have still to catch up with my postings on those locations, so don't hold your breath.
Looking at Phimai from the tree-lined royal pool
A part of the lintel on the west of the mandapa at Phimai showing Rama trapped by the coils of a naga with monkey troops in attendance
These three schoolgirls spoke a smattering of Khmer in Phimai
Three more young girls, this time taking turns to launch themselves into the pool at Kuti Rishi Ban Khok Mueang
The wonderful pie & chips menu at Mr Dang's restaurant in Ban Kruat
This doesn't look like a conflict zone does it, but its the fence that separates the Thai and Cambodian troops at Prasat Ta Muen Thom on the disputed borderline
The picturesque 12th century temple at Prasat Sikhoraphum surrounded by water
Just to lower the tone as he always does, Tim fills the swimming pool at our Surin hotel
