Siam: Kenneth on Traveling Around His Parish


Kenneth's parish extended from the Malay border all the way up to Chumphon, a couple hundred miles. The peninsula was about ninety miles wide. And he covered every part of it. "I went by every means of transportation that's ever been invented. I walked, I rode bicycles, I went in bullock carts, I went by elephant, I went by train, I went by canoe, I went by small craft, I went by motorboat, I just simply went every place.


Landon, Kenneth (1903-1993)


January 1, 1938
