When you're traveling you get a better understanding of scattered rain forecasts. Traveling to and from Mukdahan and Sakon Nakhon, we passed areas where it had not rained in quite a while. Then we traveled through wet areas and sprinkle rain and heavy rain. There were ominous dark clouds hanging over Phu Phan mountains in the distance. Midnite like dark.
Highway construction along the way with detours and one direction temporary bridges, and plenty potholes to keep drivers alert.
Besides watching a football game in Mukdahan I wanted to do some shopping and see the Mekong river. Mukdahan is a great place to do some discount shopping
Where I was standing the Mekong water level did not seem so ominous, but not all river edges are mountainous
