Back to Koh Samui

January 1, 2009 - 2:14 pm No Comments

This evening, we went to the bar at the resort and met up with Kyle, Beverly, and some of their South African friends for dinner, drinks, and a few legendary games of Jenga. After learning that the resort makes magic mushroom shakes, we went to the bar to order some, only to find out that they had just run out. Shame.

Doug and I really like Kyle. At 22 years old, he is happier and more mature than most Americans we know in their 30’s.

Tomorrow morning, we are going to catch the ferry back to Koh Samui. Our next few days will be spent on the beach and exploring the island. We are hoping for better weather. These are beautiful islands, but paradise is a little more perfect when the sun is shining.

We are toying with the idea of ferrying back to Koh Phangan for a Half Moon Party on January 4, since it will likely be our last few days of fun before spending the rest of our trip exploring the wats and ancient ruins of northern Thailand, Cambodia, and maybe Vietnam or Laos.

PS: We were not in Bangkok when the fire broke out, but down on the island of Koh Phangan. In fact, we only heard bits and pieces about it a few days after it happened (backpacker word-of-mouth travels slower than Internet). So we are fine. Thanks to everyone who checked in on me!
