We arrive in Khorat about 01:00 then continue to Roi Et making several more stops at places we havent been to before.  Then we pull into a garage for some gas, join a queue of lorries, then disembark again in the cold for the best part of an hour whilst we wait for the bus to fill up.  By the time we reach Phon Thong I have a couple of extra T-shirts out of our case and am still shivering.  The journey that took 8 hours Phon Thong to Bangkok has just taken us 12 hours in reverse !  I have made Jai promise me that she will never buy tickets with this company (Mukdahan Tours) ever again.
We tuk-tuk across town to collect the bike where I manage to pit on something warm.  A bit of shopping then back to Khamnadie, teeth chattering still.  I dont think it is really that cold but the hours on the bus must have chilled me to the core.
Back to cooking our own food this morning then Jai is off to help out at another house blessing party.  I bike back into Phon Thong, now that the sun has come out, and spend some time catching up at the internet.
In our absence a 'Happy New Year' card has arrived from mum, cheers.
Back to Khamnadie early afternoon and I am self catering for lunch then stretch out in the back garden for the afternoon.
Early evening Norng Fin comes to visit for a while. 
Straight to bed after eating in the evening.
