Day five of my Thailand visit was rather uneventful.  I had some time to kill waiting for Mr. Somkhit to become available the next day.  I wanted to do something but I also wanted to not spend a lot of time traveling and I was sick of buses by this time.  So, I walked around Khonkaen.

First thing in the morning, Oath and his girlfriend took me to a noodle shop in Udon Thani before taking me to the bus station for my trip back to Khonkaen.

I was having so much fun in Chonburi that I honestly didn’t want to leave, but this was my last day nevertheless.  It began with A-nune and Elle picking me up at my room,

Recently I went to Thailand on business to pick up some tools at a factory in the Isaan area.  Fortunately for me, I had time to enjoy myself while there and having my new D7000, I took lots of photos.  Speaking of which, please bear with me in this first installment about my trip, as I have been adjusting the D7000 to optimize it for the look that I want.  Initially, I had the colors jacked up too high and occasionally it made for some cartoonish photos.  But I soon found where the settings want to be and I’ve been shooting it that way since.  So without further delay, please enjoy this first installment in my 2012 Thailand trip!

We start off at Taoyuan International Airport, which is currently under construction to renovate Terminal 1, where my flight originated.  This strange roof cover seems to be completed now and I didn’t recognize the terminal when my taxi drove up to it.

Goodbye Jim!

Goodbye Jim!

We had another grill party get-together this weekend, to say goodbye to long time Taiwan blogger, Jim Boyden, aka Sponge Bear, aka Kaminoge, aka A Curmudgeon Abroad.  Jim and his family are leaving Taiwan rather suddenly because of an unexpected job offer in the USA.  The truth is, I’ve never met Jim before (even though we’ve both been here for some time) and I didn’t want him to leave without meeting at least once.  Our friend Michael Turton drove up with Jim and we met at Xiao-hui’s place for some grilled fare.

Warning:  In this installment, I documented the preparation and roasting of a pig in the local village.  If such images disturb you, I recommend that you do not view them.

I talked with my friend Sonny, and we decided to throw a barbecue party for his relatives and friends in the village.

On the land behind Sonny’s home, he has a piggery.  We selected one of his pigs to roast, Filipino style, over an open pit.

Part of the 2010 USA Trip Series

The First Part Of Our Trip

I used to have a wood smoker back in New Hampshire, and I have missed smoking foods in Taiwan (although I do have a smoker in Thailand).  We went in halves with my sister and her husband and picked up this Brinkmann smoker at Home Depot.  I got to use it quite a few times during our visit.  We’ll show you what we put in the smoker shortly.
