I currently live in Northeast Thailand (Isaan) with my wife of over 35 years where we are helping a young Mennonite Brethren church in Nong Khai province.


I take photos related to our work, scenery, plants and critters of various sorts, etc. Especially plants, which you can find organized by plant family in my plants collection. (www.flickr.com/photos/eddingrid/collections/7215760583101...)

I write blog posts about once a month here: mekong-sunrise.blogspot.com
