Just back from Khon Kaen where I took my family on a trip to see my father. Over a year ago, he had a severe stroke and the city was a fleeting memory of hospital food, hotel beds and medical jargon. This time, it was a chance to catch up and communicate with him, and see his recovery made possible by the loving care from his family there.
Dusty and dry, Khon Kaen Province has a population of about 1.7 million and transport is mainly 4WDs and motorcycles. It seems an interesting turn of ways that brings me to learn more about this fascinating country and its people. My love of textiles has made me curious about all the kinds of silk that Thailand produces - and apparently it's mandatory for public servants to wear silk on one day of the week. It's that a great way to support a national industry?
