A stray rooster.

Just outside Udon, in the middle of a forest, lived an influential monk. After his death, the temple has become a place of pilgrimage. Besides simple houses for the monks there is now a monument with an image of the monk. Lots of marble, very shiny. His house has become a museum. Fortunately, it stayed with just that one monument, the scenery is just as it must be witha temple in a Thai forest. And occasionally you'll see some animals.


When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
