This is the view from our balcony (where Steve did all of his "work") I've come to accept the fact that he always works just sometimes doesn't go into the office.
The preferred and only available mode of transportation other than walking is the tuk-tuk.
Shopping is great. These shops are typical of what lines the streets. Any and everything you could possibly want(me) and not want(Steve and Frank) is available. This is the place to buy anything imitation. They even take you to special hidden rooms for the really good fake stuff!!!
I wan't very impressed with the electrical wiring. Some of the wires were low enough to walk into, but then again, one would only do that once.
Boxing was advertised by these guys boxing each other or making loud punching sounds on the tops of trucks that drove around using a loudspeaker to give the details.
Last but not least, the long awaited picture of me (and Steve). By the way, this trip was also in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary on April 30. Don't know why he's put up with me that long but I'm grateful he has. I think this island may be called phee-phee(it's pronounced pee pee don't laugh).Picture me putting my hands together just under my chin and bowing my head slightly which is the traditional thai greeting. So long for now.
