Just before 06:00 this morning the second 200Bht arrives to procure a vote for a different candidate. There is a Buddhist festival of some sort today and a few people have dropped in to give us assorted food presents.  Jai wants to buy a few things in Phon Thong this morning so that she can cook some things to give back to everyone.  Into Phon Thong and the Saturday market then back to the house where Jai spends the rest of the morning cooking and preparing food for gifts and to take to the temple tomorrow.  I keep out of the way with a book.  Before our visitors arrived we reinstalled the bench by the back door so that I now have somewhere to stretch out in comfort.  After eating this evening we walk to visit Norng Fin and she rides her little bike back to our place with us to stay a while.  The noisy election trucks were supposed to have stopped yesterday but there have still been a few around today.  I am planning on having a party on Monday to celebrate the fact that it is all over !!!!
