In 2018/2019, when we are in Bangkok, we stay in the house of Pia's youngest sister Moue, just like in previous years. She lives in a fairly small house in Latkrabang, together with her husband Kaeng, their daughter Focus and their son Gunn.

There lives also a cousin of Kaeng, a 13-year-old boy, who has to learn a trade here in Bangkok, because he has problems at home with his family.
Latkrabang is a district of Bangkok. The house is located in a quiet soi (side street) behind the motorway to Chonburi, about fifteen minutes drive from the airport.

The house is not that big, but there is enough space.
There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The kitchen was built next to the house when Moue went to live there.
And in front of the house there is a small garden, and a driveway for one car.
The soi starts at Thanon Chalong Krung, a wide road, where more and more restaurants and shops are coming.

It is good to stay here when we are on vacation. The room where we sleep is quite small, less than 20 square meters, but there is air conditioning and there is a good bed and there is plenty of closet space. We have to share the bathroom, but that does not cause any problems.
At about seven o'clock the children are taken to school, and then Moue and Kaeng go to work. They return home at seven o'clock in the evening, and two hours later they go to sleep.
We have the house as good as ever for ourselves.

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.
