Takhli Base Chapel, by 1970 the trees have grown up on the circle compared to Clarence Dick's photo


These little geckos ate tons of mosquitoes, and gave out a little tsk, tsk chirp.  Found everywhere, they were treated much like pets at times, downside was their droppings turned up everywhere too

The road and means to town, a one-baht "bus".  For a nickel, these converted pickup trucks would haul you to town, two bench seats facing each other in the back with a roof for rain.  Not quite up to OSHA requirements.  You could tell  who had been there a long time by the way they would step off the little step on the back while the thing was still moving
