not sure what kind this is but it is everywhere....even dead ones floating at the peer...???
This morning I went on a speed boat tour (island hopper) to all the mini beaches around here. Amazing, the water is so clear, it is beautiful! I wish I could buy one of the islands for me and myself he he. A few of the people went snorkling but I can't handle the thought of dangling in the wide open ocean....have you seen the move OPEN WATER...that is all I kept thinking about...lol. Plus I could see some of the fish from the boat anyway!! Today is my last day in Phuket. Kinda glad....the hustle and bustle here is crazy!! So many people. People people people..........everywhere, and transvestites too....I took pics of that too.
I took a Thai cooking class yesterday it was sooo yummy. After the class I went to the market.....ewwwww! There were so many weird things (I took lots of pics). I ordered a fruit smoothie and it was sooooo good, but trying to drink it while walking through the stench of the market (wadaya know, another meat market) was impossible. There where little oyster/clam things that squirt water at you, skinned frogs, birds, that where not skinned but "plucked". I tried to ask if it was
chicken but they just kept saying "BIRD". They where only the size of my hand, if that. THEN I saw the chicken, all they do is pluck it and cut in 1/2 down the center, so you can see the gizard and other yummy insides....blaghk. As for the cooking class.... I feel a bit better about ordering Thai food from a menu now! I hear there is a great restaurant on the island (phi phi). I am going to brave and eat there! I met a girl from Ireland who has been telling me a lot about phi phi (she used to live there) and it sounds so relaxing I can't wait!! I have to take the ferry there tomorrow. It is about a two hour ride I think. And there are no cars, or mopeds, or even roads on the island, but there are some nice hotels.....sounds exactly like what I am looking for!! Ok, well I guess that is enough typing for now since I have to pay by the minute and I have to save some Bahts for Phi Phi. I will be there for a week hopefull relaxing in the sun on a beach with NOT
ribbit, some skin left here....yum!
so many people as Patong. Have a great night everyone or morning, or whatever time it is there....I don't even know....I only look at a clock or calendar every few days....it's weird but really nice!!
