This book is about people. The photographs presented here are mostly taken in our home territory of Isaan, Thailand. This journey was four months in duration and covered many areas of Thailand and into Lao Peoples Democratic Republic. The people represented here are friends, family and people we met along the way. Most of the people we visited were in remote areas of Isaan and Lao PDR and all are from rural communities. There is little in the way of tourist coverage here as we tended to head deep into farming areas far from tourist trails. Some locations are so remote I can't find a record of them on any maps I have sought out. Many destinations and their people had not seen a western visitor previously. We enjoyed the freedom of not knowing where we were going or who we would encounter. This books documents some very special people from our home village and beyond.
