Penultimate day in Khamnadie and almost certainly, this time, our last trip into Phon Thong before we come for the bus tomorrow night.
Jai is up at 05:00 to prepare the rice and then starts baking !!  I make a cup of tea and then retire to bed leaving her to it.
On my second borrowed bike and third different bike in as many days we head into Phon Thong and straight to the bus station where we procure tickets for the 20:00 Bangkok departure tomorrow night.  Next stop is the bank for Jai to deposit her rice money from yesterday then top up the bike with some petrol.  Absolutely no shopping today but a quick stop for a final weigh in before returning to Khamnadie.
A quick stop at the house then out to the farm for a final watering and for Jai to plant some pumpkin seeds on the old bamboo patch ready for when the rains come.  Jai goes and strips some leaves from a couple of trees to make a curry for lunchtime then back to the house by 11:00 with the heat building again.
It is too hot to do much at all this afternoon but I do get around to washing both bikes and burning off the last of our rubbish at the house.
In the evening we borrow a hand cart from neighbour Ang and take a couple of sacks of rice to Jai's brother Pad to use as seeds when he plants the rice for us later on.
Bike over to Pak Chong to make sure that John is OK with the timings for tomorrow night.
Stop off to return the bike but are told to keep it until we leave which could be handy.
