Beach life...(is the life!)

So perhaps I spoke too soon (and perhaps a bit generalized) in my last post re:traveling vs. vacationing. Where have I been the last 4 days? The beach. How do I pass my days? Chess, juggling, swimming, and reading. What are my plans for tomorrow? Kayaking to a geocache, chess, juggling, and swimming. How many of these endeavors involve local culture or any sort of worthy pursuit? None. But that's okay.

Ryan and I have lucked out on places to stay out here on Ko Chang. Our first hut was a great little one on the beach about a 20 minute walk down a dirt road. There was a huge lawn for juggling, a great beach for swimming, and hammocks all around for reading and chillin'. The downside was the surly dude that owned the place took an immediate disliking to us. And while we can't prove anything, a large number of fleas and ants did end up in our beds. Perhaps coincidence. Anyway, after a scratchy and sleepless night, we've moved down to the Lonely Planet-recommended Treehouse bungalows. Pictured to the right is my current digs, a tiny hut that will prolly have the porch over the water at high tide. Good times!

mmm. The flea story is making me reminisce of the time we were in Indonesia scuba diving in the most beautiful place ever, but the rats would eat the crotches out of our underwear at night...

i just read my comment, for clarification, we were not wearing our underwear when the rats would snack on them... :-) that sounded really bad...

Sarah, thanks for the clarification! Wren, that place looks awesome. Bring home some sunshine, a grass hut, warm ocean, and a palm frond or two!

I've found you! I received a postcard from a mysterious person (who I didn't know was in China!), and thought I'd catch up with his travels. It sounds like your having a wonderful time, but I'm telling you, I bet China isn't as exotic as Canada. As a matter of fact, it seem like most of the people in China are leaving to live here.

The beach sounds nice. I wiped out with my commie cruiser on the ice yesterday. Slid the entire street width, picked up myself, my bike, all my debasketed things and rid on. Not a single person helped as I moaned and they walked by like they'd never seen a white girl wiped out before. A little soar today... goona go get an hour massage for a dollar. I love NE China. I miss Thailand.

Not related in any way to this post, but does this from the Onion sound familiar? "Son is type of kid who wears shorts in dead of winter" Hmmm... It's an entry of their list "A recent study suggests that parents are often unaware of their children's drug use. Here are some warning signs parents should look out for". I'm frankly dissappointed. I expected better of you.

Having run into Aaron Mitchell at the Brown Lantern twice, now, it has been made clear that Thailand is good for little more than just that...hence the shorts.
