Sawadee-ka everyone! We arrived in Phuket, but as expected the internet is spotty. So, a quick update...The island is not what I expected. It feels a little like we're on the edge of the world. As we drove through town last night, I witnessed a shockingly busy, crowded, loud, bright, colorful scene. There were massive amounts of tourists walking the streets, dancing in bars, meeting 'lady boys'. It was a much wilder scene that anything we experienced in Bangkok. Our house is beautiful, nestled on top of a hill that overlooks the Andaman coastline. We are going to explore a quieter, more peaceful part of the island that lies a bit south. Tomorrow, Elisa & her friend, Sam will go scuba diving. I think I'll snorkel and spend time in our pool...and yes, I'm wearing my sunscreen.
