Having bought the land, we decided to have a look at the neighbourhood that it's located in (the wrong order I know). After checking that all the sasa grass and thorn bushes haven't grown back overnight, we followed the road in front of our hill to have a look at the land from the other side.
We're quite well satisfied with how it looks. We also had a look at some of the large ponds dotted about the area. Fishing looks like it might be good.
