After last week rushing around in Bangkok, it was off to Issan this week. Kantaralak near Ubon Ratchatani to be more precise. Sa’s family up country have been putting on the pressure for Master Ben to make the long journey up country.
So it was with trepidation that we headed off last Friday Morning. It’s a 7 hour car journey and we really were not sure how Ben was going to cope!
Well, as it turned out he was a little star. Slept most of the way and only had one little grizzle about an hour before we arrive – outstanding considering the poor little mite was trussed up in his car seat like a kipper for 7 hours!

Once there, what I found amazing was that we never saw him! He was literally passed from house to house for 4 days. I’m sure he is totally confused as who is Mummy and Daddy are now.
They didn’t even want to give him back at night!

Yet again the return journey was a joy as he gurgled almost all the way home.
Now everyone is waiting for Nong Lemon to appear next week. It seems really funny that Ben is going to be an Uncle at 3 Month old!
