And Even More Tien Mou

Barbara Auch sent me a great photo of the BOT quarters where she and her husband lived during the late 1970s.  Here's what she had to say about it:

The last photo under Tien Mou in 1984, Part 1, was very interesting to me.   Things changed so much just from 1979 to 1984!

You said that photos three through six are of the west side of the street where the Japanese school now stands.  I believe that the apartment buildings behind the school (photo 6) are the same apartment buildings that were being built behind my house (BOT #109 in the west compound)!  If you blow up the picture, you can see the bamboo scaffolding.  There was a big earthquake when we were there and I was amazed that the scaffolding didn't come down.
