Our Community: Ban Lampunbong

We still aren’t sure of our mailing address, but we know where we are thanks to Google maps. We’re a half hour bike ride to the nearest van departure point in Nong Ya Sai, then 90 minutes’ drive to Bangkok. About an hour to the west of us, the land starts to get mountainous.

Here it is zoomed-in to Nong Pho level, with more detail below:


Detail A, showing Wat Lam Phan Bong and its fish/turtle pond above, and  Wat Lam Phan Bong School (where Bob works) below. The school is a 10 minute bike ride from our house.

 Detail B, showing the bend in the road where we live. Our landlords are a wonderful couple who own a store that fronts on the road, and we live in a house behind theirs.

Paul works out of the Aw Ba Taw, the Subdistrict Administrative Office of Suphanburi government, about 5-10 minutes by bike from our house. Though he has office space there, he’ll be moving around the province once his various projects get off the ground.

This morning we sat in front of the store and struggled (with our lousy Thai language abilities) to chat with people as they came and went. It was a pretty sleepy scene, and I took a picture of it, but it for some reason it won’t upload. So you’ll just have to imagine it!
