Day 11 Ko Phangan
Today is our last full day in Thailand before we head off to Cambodia tomorrow. I'm sad to leave but Tyler is excited to move on. We spent today by the beach and pool, and ended the night with a yummy Thai dinner.
Since this entry would be short otherwise I thought I'd write down interesting things we saw/learned in Thailand like:
-Thai construction workers wear flip flops while working
-there are stray dogs everywhere (I think Tyler petted every single one of them)
-the people are very nice, much nicer than the people we encountered in Europe
-gecko's make the sound "gecko"
-there are pictures of the king everywhere (literally)
-they can make a pretty good pizza
-tuk tuks are called that because their engine makes the sound "tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk" as it idles
-everyone rides a scooter and we saw a family of 4 on one (including an infant) and no helmets for anyone
- there doesn't appear to be any lanes as scooters weave through traffic and cars and vans constantly jockey for position while driving on all sorts of different types of roads.
-they have lots of Thai flavoured Pringles like "Bangkok BBQ chicken wing"
-surprisingly everyone seems to be on their cellphone and Facebook
-a cocktail is more expensive that a meal itself
-in most places you can't flush toilet paper down the toilet (like Greece)
- the Thai people had the most trouble with Tylers name..you'd think itd be easy since it has the word "Thai" in it
-Thailand means "land of the free"
Thats all I can think right now, see you in Cambodia!
