Back from my travels - Udon - Nakhon Phanom

Made a trip east for a change, to Nakhon Phanom and Thakhek.

The bus journey was long, but at least I ate before boarding.  We seemed to have frequent long stops on the way there.  Left Udon at 0945.  It was advertised as the 1000 bus.  It took just under 6 hours to get to Nakhon, but we had a forty minute stop in Sakon which was not repeated on the return trip.

By the time I had checked into the hotel, for the first night the Grand, even if there was nothing grand about it.  At least clean and convenient.  Found a restaurant, the Classic restaurant, which served good food and seemed popular with both Farang and local, always a good sign, not that a brief walk round the riverside area revealed much choice.

A quiet evening ready for the trip to Laos the following day.
