Khon Kaen Wat Nong Wang Muang--nine tier chedi

I had planned on skipping Khon Kaen.  I was thinking about taking the bus from Nakhon Phanom to Khon Kaen and then taking  the overnight bus to Chiang Mai.  But after 6 hours on the bus I changed my mind and found the freindly Phu Hotel just 5 minutes from the bus station with the usual Chinese Hotel mod-cons including Wi-Fi in my room.  I am so glad I did.  The city is lovely with a restive Beung Kaen Nakhon lake, several museums, wonderful temples, and great day and night markets with endless places to eat.

So I am here for the day until 8pm tonight when my bus leaves for Chiang Mai.  My next posting will be from Chiang Mai.
