Omar put me up and showed me around his city of Nakhon Si Thammarat. And he lent me his sweet motor bike to cruise around "the Khon." Omar is currently the computer teacher at a private Christian school where we spent some evenings playing excellent games of soccer and ultimate frisbee with other Westerner teachers. At the gate of Omar's school is the large inscription, "The Fear of the Lord is the First Step to Wisdom."
We ventured outside the city to explore a sweet giant limestone cave with a river running through it that we swam and walked through.
Wat Phra Mahathat is the most important temple in the Khon and the biggest in southern Thailand.
Haad Yuan, the beach where Omar brought me for an fun weekend with some of his friends.
