I´ve been twice in Laos.. and yes... I couldn´t see so much difference at all... and the same between Kampuchea and Buriran
Yeah, Buriram, Sisaket, and Surin are very Khmer:

Northern Khmer dialect - Wikipedia

They're not Khmer-majority (though Surin is close), but their Khmer percentage is comparable to, say, the black percentage in the blackest US states right now.

If you're curious as to why Cambodia never actually acquired the northern Khmer territories, it might be because the Dongrek/Dangrek Mountains separate these territories from Cambodia:

Yes, very interesting map... When I was in Buriran it was funny to find many people speaks both languages (Thai and Camboyan languages).. So I think some areas in Thailand are brotherly to Cambodge and others area to Laos. Personally I think Cambodia is hotter than Thailand... Buriran is hotter than the res of the country too...

Yeah, Thailand's Isan region is comparable to Laos in terms of language and culture.

Hotter than Bangkok?

Hard to say... for me yes... but I know people say no... however me.... was almost defeated by the Hot in Isan provinces...In Bangkok,... I usually walked from Udom Suk to Mo chit (around 4 hours walking) but in Buriran... not more than one hour!!

And yes, Isan is comparable to Laos.. I think.

Dear Futurist..

Morocco... NEVER was a French Dominion... it was a Spanish-French Protectorate (and only in 20th Century)....

Spanish language didn´t arrive to USA in 1940... in fact.. it was there... 200 years before 1776... as the same English Wikipedia you can read... Not very much English language in Texas in 1815.... or in California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Oklahoma, Nuevo Mexico.. etc...
Florida was different..although Spanish Dominion from 1513 to 1821 (save between 1763 - 1783)...English language was widely spread in Spanish Florida (due to the very slow Spanish demographic rate) since 1763 ... in fact, between 1783-1821... English language was the first language in Florida.. although Florida was a Spanish Province... Spain was an empire ... languages didn't matter. ... unlike the nineteenth-century Anglo-Saxon immigrants who deliberately destroyed the Spanish and French languages of the former Spanish Dominions... that´s the reason because you wrote Spanish language arrived to USA in 1940.. when the Spanish language arrived to Kentucky and Tennessee at early as 1540...

Great facts here. I have a quick question, I've created a podcast about the history of Kentucky and was wondering if you knew or could direct me to some information about specific Spanish explorers who first arrived in Kentucky? Thanks, any help is appreciated.
