Wherever you stay in Isan
You’ll probably feel the pang
For sticky rice – ‘khao nieow’; ‘lao khao
- Rice liquor - and Beer Chang

I could tell you all about Isan
But if you go alone
You’ll feel blessed by the warmth of welcome
And gratitude you’re shown


  1. Dead good! I hope the tourist board are paying you well!

  2. I like all those exotic names! You even rhymed in that language!

  3. sweetalkingguy - Beer Chang are sorting me out; or the other way around.

    linda jacobs - The exotic names are all place names - in Thailand.
    The north east of Thai is known as Isan. This is just a quick tour, but a visit will leave long-lasting memories. Thanks for 'visiting' my space filler.
