I have added this post to my building stories as it shows the location of the main places of interest based around our new home to be. The family home, the farm and Si Bun Ruang CBD! are all shown below.

I have included these images now as Google Earth heard that I was moving to Si Bun Ruang and as a result has updated the images and improved the quality. Thanks Mr Google.
