Wat Marp Jan with Ajahn Anan.

I like Ajahn Anan, he's enthusiastic. Most of the teaching there is in Thai but there are a bunch of Western bhikkhus.

Wat Boonyawad with Ajahn Anan... But it's really hardcore there.

And I know of a small monastery near Ubon which teaches young Thai kids and orphans to be novices. Last time i was there they had about 30 kids and five bhikkhus. The Ajahn and one of the monks speaks English.

You mean Ajahn Dtun? By 'hardcore', is it 'positively hardcore' as in 'intense practitioners'? Or is it more negative?

Oops yes I meant Ajahn Dtun. Can I edit that to correct it? No, I can't edit it any more.
Very intense practitioners, strict vinaya, very early to wake and late to sleep. Gets results!
