Cooler working at night...the main picture is of an outdoor workshop specialising in manufacture of large Buddha icons...it is too hot to work during the day, so they rig powerful lights and work at night.
On arrival in Sawannaket, about 1400, we find accommodation, then set out to explore the city which is situated right beside the Mekong River and directly over the water from Thailand's Mukdahan city. Our mode of transport is Shanks' Pony, aka walking, which is a favourite way we usually choose for studying new cities. It is fearful hot, but we know the cold beer tastes better in such conditions and we have a good excuse for frequent stops.
So, we walk, eat and guzzle our way around the city until about 2100, by which time bed beckons strongly.
Here is a slideshow that will give you some impression of our meanderings around this city:
