Rural north east Thailand

For the last few days we have been enjoying the hospitality of our friends mark and aom in there villa in Khon Kaen province in the north-east of Thailand.we visited a local farm and found some beautiful water buffalo sheltering under a tree.i loved the rural landscape of a patchwork of paddyfields,some dried out and dusty,others bright green with lush rice growth.water is shared equally amongst the various farmers lands on a rota system it was explained to me so that everyone gets a fair share of the water in an area where temperatures can reach 42c in the hot summer months.
