I have had some requests to post a little something about my home away from home, Bang Yai. There is not much to tell aside from that it is a city suburb about 40 minutes north of Bangkok. There is a giant highway running through it, and eventually, by August I think, there will be a BTS skyline train stop here, as well as the largest Central Mall in SE Asia. We have a market called BB, or BangYai Bazaar, 2 Big C's (kind of like your Walmart or Target), and The Square, which is a Mall of sorts and also where my apartment complex is located. The school I teach at is a short 5-10 minute ride away, and the school sends a van to pick us up each morning and drop us off in the evenings.

The highway...in the distance you can see my apartment complex and to the left of the picture is the BTS line, which is under construction and should open in August.
During the month of December and January an outdoor bar was set up with live music.
This is from one of the Big C parking lots.
At least once a week I went to lunch at this restaurant near school called HeartMilk...my favorite dish was called the Ryan and was a spicy pumpkin dish over rice.
