We recently visited again the Udon museum, and this time we took our camera. The museum building itself was built in 1920 and was used as a school up to 1973. After a complete renovation in 2002, the museum opened on 18 January 2003. The museum is on two floors and covers a variety of topics related to Udon Thani.

Aek Udon vor dem Sturm

Storm over Udon Thani

Yesterday, the 17th of March, there was a violent thunderstorm in the evening. Unusually strong winds caused damage to several buildings in the city. A hall that was still under construction at the intersection of the ring road on the DIY outlet "Global House" fell apart completely. At Aek Udon hospital a huge sign was knocked down by the wind and then fell to a nearby building. The electric supply was cut in some areas of the city due to collapsed pylons. Fortunately we haven't heard of any injured people.

Kham Chanot - Brückenanfang

Kham Chanot - a jungle island in the middle of Isan

The report presented here about Kham Chanot shows it is a unique place. Actually, it is just a lying island in a lake - nothing extraordinary, one might think. But if you think you already know Isan and its landscape and wildlife then maybe you'll be surprised when you realize very quickly that on this island, the time seemed to have stopped a few hundred years ago.
