It feels like being in Malaysia, I am not accustomed to riding in palm plantations
IMG_3263.JPG
Not all has been harvested

Lots of green bananas here but no yellow ones

Farmers out in the fields

A resort out on the dusty tracks that is closed down

What a waste of investment money
IMG_3275.JPG
Even the sign that was once 2 km away on the main road is put up here.
Perhaps this place was put up to attract tourists for the waterfall and surrounding attractions and failed to appeal

I drink the last of my Singha water and they refill the bottle for me, the cold Singha water was a lot nicer

The Huay Mae Lamao, here it is next to an ice making factory

Time for some lovely food from T&T Indian Food, Randeep delivers it to my guesthouse

Spicy pork masala 200 Baht

Bought these in town this morning for 20 Baht and some of them compliment the pork masala

I'll forgive you Colin for your lack of knowledge on banana cultivation. If you see yellow bananas growing they are way past it. You cut them green and they usually ripen in a few days depending on how hot it is. Alternatively you transport them green refrigerated.

I like your abandoned resort. They clearly thought "wil" was an acceptable abbreviation for village!
