Our weekends always start on Friday evening when the 4 ladies not working happily wave goodbye to Judy and myself who are working hard in the classroom. We then have to track them down at 9pm when we knock off, the good thing about that is that as we live right in the middle of the night markets, we do not have to go far to find them as the first bar is about 20 paces from our front gate and the second one is about 25 paces from the gate. Drinks are really cheap here, a cocktail costs about $1.50 and a beer can be bought for $1. I have my normal problem that I have everywhere, they do not stock tomato juice, only that here they will happily mash up tomatoes to make juice (not the best taste but the intent is great). You can buy a bottle of gin for $8 and Bourbon for $10. You could wake up with a good handover for about $20, not that I would do that!!
Saturday saw us going to three of the smaller temples but there were a lot older than some we had see earlier. The first buildings was Prasat Kravan which was built for Hindu worship in 921. The largest, central tower has images of Vishnu, showing him as an eight armed deity.
