We also slept better in Lat Krabang.

In the morning Moue says that we can take her car, even though Phranom's car is not there yet, she can always go to work by bus or with a colleague. We want to think about it.
Furthermore, the morning proceeds as usual, quiet breakfast, travelogue, exercises.
Pia wants to go to the hairdresser's today and maybe visit her brother in the temple.

At half past twelve we walk to the road and take a taxi to Paradise shopping mall where the hairdresser is. The shop is called Hair Decor and is located on the bottom floor.
After 45 minutes in the taxi and 200 Thb poorer we are at Paradise. Then the driver turns out not to be able to exchange a 500 Thb note. The driver drives to the taxi stand, the meter continues, and changes the banknote. It is a neat driver, he does not want more than the 200 Thb that was previously on the meter.

We walk to the hairdresser, and at half past three Pia's hair is cut. Because we have not had lunch yet, we walk to the food court in the shopping mall and eat khao kop kapi (fried rice with shrimp paste) and kepapa (tied soup with bamboo, egg and fish stomach). It tastes good.
At HomePro we buy some small things and in the food court some food to take away.
When we take a taxi back we are lucky again, a friendly and apparently honest driver who brings us home fairly quickly. At half past six and 250 Thb poorer, it is rush hour, we are home.

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.
