Home - Journeys - Thailand 2018/2019 - Thursday, February 7, 2019

We wake up at seven in the Sri U-Thong Grand Hotel in Suphan Buri.
We slept reasonably; the bed is good, but the air conditioning sometimes a bit cold.
We have breakfast, breakfast is in a part of the hall of the hotel, and especially the Thai food at breakfast is pretty good.

After breakfast we go to Ban Rai to arrange the land affairs. It is more than 100 km away, for the most part on two-lane roads. It takes two hours and then we are at the local land registry where Pia has to pay taxes, around Thb 65.
We are going to eat something, somewhere along the road, tasty.

And then we look at the piece of land.
The puuyai baan, the village head, who takes care of it, has now cultivated it himself, and that is not the agreement. After consultation with the family, it is decided to rent the piece of land again. Moue will arrange that with the puuyai baan.

We drive back via a different, shorter road, and we get lost, but after some searching we find the right road again.
We stop at the Sam Chuk 100 Year Market. Nice to have seen, but all those old and floating markets are very similar. We do buy some sambal and Chinese sausages.

Back at the hotel in Suphanburi we decide to stay another night.
We look for something to eat and end up at Zaab Nua Krua, it was pretty busy there yesterday. Today there are almost no guests, but the food tastes 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.
