Day 6 Ko Samui
It was an early morning today as we flew from Chaing Mai back to Bangkok and then to Ko Samui (an island in the south). Tyler was looking a little green and puked right after we got off the first plane (see yesterday's post re: bad food at fancy restaurant). Good thing was that the airline we took (Bangkok airways) has a spectacular lounge at the airport where you can chill on couches and enjoy free food as you wait for your connecting flight. A few hours later we landed in Ko Samui and checked into our hotel. It is basically a paradise. The sand is white, water is clear blue, cool infinity pool and the weather is hot. We bought a backgammon board in the street and we're trying to learn how to play (Tyler won the first game but I'm not sure we are playing it right). Our hotel is probably the nicest place we've ever stayed in. We have our own little patio, there is a "pillow menu" and when we came back from the beach there was a candle lit in our room to fend off mosquitoes, slippers laid out, bed untucked and a note saying "goodnight" with some mango and sweet rice. We ended the night with a seafood BBQ platter (lobster, prawns, tilapia, calamari, and crab) and called it a night. It's going to be tough to get us out of this little sanctuary and explore the island, but we'll see what tomorrow brings!
