Mina went to an “English Camp” event at the Khon Kaen hotel a couple months ago. Nam’s family used to own the blue and beige buildings across the street from the hotel, but they sold them a few years back. It had been a bar or cowboy saloon of sorts for many years, then had sat in a state of disrepair for a while, an obvious eyesore in the neighborhood. It was good to see that the new owners fixed it up.
The blue banner with faded lettering has been there as long as I can remember (~20 years?) and it advertises NATENIGHT BAZAAR – but I can’t remember ever seeing the actual bazaar. I’ll have to ask Nam’s mom about it.
