Halfway home (Phuket, Thailand)






We had a pretty rough travel day today, and are still kind of swaying from all the boat rides.  Our buddy Dave left a few days prior and about 10 people yoged on his boat from Phi Phi to Phuket. Our ride was not that bad, but it was no leisurely roll through the Andaman like our first float.  We hung out in phi phi for a few hours in the main town, and Kristin received whatever is going on in the above picture.  I think she called it a massage, sure looks like assault to me.  I had a deli sandwich in Phi Phi on a roll that was almost Piantedosi quality.   We arrived back in Phuket and it has been a pretty uneventful day.   We spent most of the evening strolling through a Phuket mall looking for a new underwater camera for our diving in Bali.  A great meal at our very Thai hotel, The Sawasadee Village ended the night on a solid note.  Now we are just preparing for our flights to Indonesia tomorrow.  Here are some more pictures from Phi Phi and Phuket today.

Of course the last day in Phi Phi



was the nicest in terms of weather



The dragontail boats were out in full force



And this goon was on the beach until the last possible second before heading back to Phuket



We had to walk away from this

The restaurant



Kristin's main, shrimp fried rice baked in a pineapple, OMG SO GOOD



My main, looks like an exercise in boredom compared to the culinary
festivities going on across the table



Our camera breaks, we lose our headphone Usb adapter in
the cracks of a boardwalk, and someone steals the lens out of
my shades

These should start getting pretty interesting.  The beach is a great place to spend time, but sort of a mundane place to write about.  We have Indonesia and Borneo coming up in the next two weeks with just a dash of Singapore, and good ole Kuala Lumpur.  Who knows maybe even a return to Hong Kong.  Stay tuned in.
