where is Sakhonnachon?
place in Thailand
It is in the north-east corner of Isan. It’s quite far away from.
It’s famous for its big freshwater lake.
Personally, I prefer Nakhon Phanom province.
As a casual referral to Wikipedia‘s article Isan will show, there are currently 20 provinces within the Northeastern Region (Isaan).
Isan is divided into 20 provinces, although the southwestern province of Nakhon Ratchasima is considered by some to be more closely connected with Central Thailand.
Isan returns 136 of the national parliament’s 400 constituency MPs. In the 2005 election, the Thai Rak Thai party took 126 of these seats, with six for Chart Thai and two each for the Democrat party and Mahachon Party.
If you want to challenge yourself on your knowledge or familiarity of the Isaan Region, try this test at Sporacle where you must identify the numbered Isaan provinces. I haven’t tried it, but it seems you are given five minutes to list all 20 provinces. As soon as you are ready to play, click the green Play Game button, and the entry box will appear where you will have to insert each province’s name. If you would prefer a seven-minute countdown, then play the game here.
As a July 10 (2012) edit to this post, here are some Isaan-related references that you may find of interest:
The big advantage of the E-san poll compared with other polls that provide a regional breakdown is that the E-san poll surveys people in all 20 provinces whereas most other pollsters only survey a handful of provinces in …

where can we find durians?
If your talking about Thailand then pretty much any market sells them in the summer but they are cheaper in the more southern areas of Thailand.I have seen as low as 35 Baht in Trad province and as high as 100Baht in the Isan.
Why do you want Durian anyway?If is the worst tasting fruit on the planet .It smells like death and tastes what I assume toe jam would taste like.
Dominican Friars – Province of England
Uploaded by Godzdogz on Jun 11, 2011
New vocations video made in 2011 for the English Dominican Province.
The Order of Friars Preachers is an international religious order of priests and brothers in the Catholic Church. The Order was founded in 1216 by St Dominic, with a mission for ‘preaching and the salvation of souls’. The friars live together in communities called priories, bound together by vow and observing the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience.
Members of the Order are known around the world as ‘Dominicans’ after their founder. In Great Britain, Dominican friars became known in mediæval times as ‘black friars’ because of the black cappa or cloak which they wear over their white habits.
The Province of England comprises seven houses in England and Scotland, and two in the Caribbean.
