Tonight we have slept in Latkrabang.

Nephew Gunn has been playing football for two weeks, a few hundred meters away, behind a gas station.
We go with him today, see how it goes. He must be there at eleven. Gunn, Focat and Pia go by bike, over the sidewalk, Tom goes walking.
At the soccer field is a real canteen, where you can buy water, beer and snacks. There are two covered soccer fields with artificial grass.
The group of children to which Gunn belongs consists of about 10 boys, and they do not start playing football, but with an hour of English lessons. The teacher, who is also the trainer, is Elvis Wike, a young Nigerian who has been living in Thailand for about seven years and who is already speaking Thai quite well. He is an enthusiastic teacher, the English lesson is fun to see, and very interactive.
After an hour the boys start training. Just like the English lesson, that goes with great enthusiasm. The training runs out a bit, instead of one hour it takes almost two, and the children are pretty tired afterwards.
We go back home, and on the way we eat noodle soup at the restaurant along the road where we have eaten before.

Tom has pain in his shoulder and wants to go to massage.
On the internet Tom finds an address in the area with good reviews, Porntip Thai Massage. We go there with a taxi and opt for an hour of massage. The lady, who massages Tom, knows how to find Tom's sore muscles very quickly, which is not nice, but it helps. Of course the complaints are not resolved with one treatment, it is suggested to massage with warm oil next time, that is less painful.

After the massage we go to the Talat Nat Suvarnabhumi, a very large market, where you can buy everything.
We take food home, much too much food of course. It tastes very good.

We tell what we have done and experienced during a trip and we also tell what we think about it; no more and no less.

This is not a travel guide, nor is it advice to visit a place or not. There are other sites for that.
Our opinion about places where we have eaten, drunk or slept is not intended as a (positive or negative) assessment, there are other sites for that.
It is our view of the situation at a certain moment and that view is influenced by our mood, the weather and many other factors.
