Home - Journeys - Thailand and Laos 2020 - Saturday, February 29, 2020

We spent the night with the family in Lat Krabang.

During the morning someone, it is not so clear who, should look at a few pieces of land in Bang Nam Priao owned by the family. For years, perhaps 25 years, no attention has been paid to that land, but now it suddenly becomes important, because tax has to be paid for it.
With the help of Google Maps and the coordinates on the papers of the Thai land register, an attempt is made to find the way to the ground. After a lot of searching we think we can find it, there is only one major obstacle, namely the construction of a few large viaducts near the place where we have to get off the main road. We go there with Moue and her family.
We find the viaducts and then we drive the wrong way, of course, which we find out after a few kilometers. When we get back to the viaducts we take another road, now the good one, and we think we have found the pieces of land. For the sake of convenience, the papers of the land register have been left behind in Bangkok, so it cannot be checked whether we are with the right pieces.
The pieces, which the family probably owns, have been used by someone to grow rice on. Not as strange as nobody in the family has looked at it for 25 years.

We drive to a floating market, Talat Nam Bang Krachet, where we eat something. The market is not that big, but it looks neat. We are late and it is very quiet.

Pia agrees with Toon, a niece, that she will pick up an old laptop that we brought for her tomorrow in the early afternoon.
Phranom tells that she needs the car that we can use for herself, Moue will return the car tomorrow.

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.
