    I have not been able to load Day 2, trying yesterday and today. Days 1 & 3 load just fine.

    I just thought I would mention this in case others were having the problem also.

    PHOTO ALBUM FOR DAY 1: On the first day of our Isaan trip, we stopped for lunch at Play La Ploen in Buriam. This is a boutique hotel and adventure camp. They also have a Flora Park which we visited after lunch. We then drove straight to Surin where we were just in time for the Candle Festival Procession. We then stayed the night in Surin.

    PHOTO ALBUM FOR DAY 2: The highlight of the second day was the merit making ceremony where monks rode on elephant back to collect alms from local people and tourists. This day is Asarnha Bucha which is on the full moon in July every year. 88 elephants took part in the ceremony. We next went to Ban Taklang Elephant Village to attend their Buddhist Lent ceremony. Surin is the home to Thai elephants and they have many festivals that involve elephants in this province. On the way to Ubon Ratchathani, we stopped briefly at Ban Khampun. This is a private residence and also a weaving center. They only open to the public for three days every year during the Khao Phansa festival. We spent the night in Ubon Ratchathani.

    PHOTO ALBUM FOR DAY 3: The third day of our trip coincided with Khao Phansa which is the official start of the three month long Buddhist Lent. On this day, there are many candle processions around Thailand. Probably the biggest and best Candle Festival Parade takes place in Ubon Ratchathani. The wax sculptures in the parade can take up to two months to complete. On this day, we also visited the 20 meter high Buddha image Phra Mongkhon Ming Mueang in Amnat Charoen province. In Yasothon province, we met people who were hunting for lucky numbers at Wat Ban Chiang Pheng. Here there is a 200 year old boat and people rubbed the wood to try and see auspicious numbers so that they would have a good chance of winning the lottery. Our final stop was to see the giant toad at Vimarn Phaya Thaen.
