We stop at Khorat as usual at 00:15 and reach Phon Thong before 05:00 with both of us having managed to grab a little sleep - but not enough !! Tghe tuk-tuk ride out to Khamnadie in the dark was pretty cold as well but this still didnt serve to properly wake us up. We unpack, eat breakfast, clean through the house then Jai decides that she is going out to the farm to start on cutting the rice. Like an idiot I say that I will go with her. We work for about 5 hours with a short stop for lunch before both of us are exhausted from lack of sleep and we bike our weary bodies back to the house with three of the rice plots finished. After a shower and a coffee I feel a lot better - no I dont that was a lie !! The garden hasnt changed much in our brief absence although there are now feint signs of carrots coming through and definitely no cauliflowers. In the evening we get a phone call from some friends from Chiangmai. Cliff & Tukta are visiting Dave & Max down in Surin and want to stop and visit us on Friday for a couple of days.
