Lisa - Prang Ku (Si Saket)
Location: USAWelcome to my pictures during my home-stay with Volunthai! I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do remembering them. Enjoy!
My bedroom. I miss hearing the sound of the rain on the tin roof at night. [Michael adds: This is a relatively basic homestay, most will offer you a proper bed. But I, like Lisa, prefer to live like the locals!]
The running of the Water Buffalos
I have some friends in the rice business...
Som Tum (papaya salad). So delicious! I learned the un-American ways of Thai cooking. I loved it!
My lovely little neighborhood. I'm pretty sure the phrase "when it rains it pours" was invented in Thailand.
Burirum, Thailand. Field trips in rural Thailand are awesome!
My little neighbor friend and her Kitty.
Mae feeding her "pets" as Pi Ju liked to joke. She makes silk clothing from the thread she has produced. I was lucky to see the process from start to finish.
My Thai Family
I felt proud to wear the yellow shirt - to show respect for the King whom they love so much.
One of these things is not like the other...
I was lucky enough to spend a few days with the highest government offiical of Prang Ku and his wife Pi Pu (she was a teacher at my school). He invited me to stay in his family's home in Ayutthaya as well as be my tour guide around this historical area. His home was the most beautiful traditional Thai home made out of Teak wood. A very cool experience in itself.
