Where to start? Well we are doing great here, more friendly then we thought! I will let you all know a little of everything that we have done since our last blog.
We did all of the following with the couple (Danielle & Mike) All happened on Wednesday and Thursday
After our last blog we went to Ko San Road (great shopping Yvonne) it is like the Calgary Stampede times a million, packed with people lights everywhere and people asking tuk tuk (taxi).
Went to wat benchanapophit, some more wats (temples), some silk shops and jewllery shops. It was neat we watched how they made jewllery from scratch. It is amazing to see how these people live - congested and no slow moments at all!!! The weather does not ever drop below 25C and I think yesterday was about 35C + humidity.
After we toured around for about 3 hours (cost us $2) we went for a quick dip and than back to Ko San Road... I do not think that we could ever get sick of it...haha give us another week on that road and i bet that our tune will change.
Once back on Ko San Road, during the night it is amazing - the lights and the people become more alive.
Grasshoppers tasted great!
Thenightlife as we mentionned is great. We were walking down an lley to take a short cut and BAM all we could here was Jack Johnson - heck we thought he was actually playing live but it was a Thai that was jammin at a pub, we sat down and enjoyed it for the rest of his show! While we were sitting there we started chatting with an English guy from south Hamptons and he showed us the most amazing place. It is called "The Roof" and there was nothing but live music - anything from Pink Floyd to Brittney Spears, lol. Steve (Thompson) he even played WILCO!!!! It gets you so pumped that you almost cry with joy!!!!
It is amazing what come over you once travelling - it is so EASY to speak with anyone. We met some really great guys that just finished graduating from Glasgow University and they are taking a year tour the world (they just finished INDIA) Herman they with be spending a couple days with us in August/September when they make there way to Canada, we are also meeting up with them in Australia, most likely Sydney or Melbourne, which means that Mom and Freedy Cakes will get to meet them.
We went on a river tour - through the poverty area, we seen a monitor that was 5-6ft long and from what the guy said was not really that rare to see out here. we video taped the whole thing - AWESOME!
We hit up the weekend market today which we really do not know how to describe - we spent 3 or 4 hours there and maybe seen 5 - 10% of it... some really crazy things that we can not really say over the computer.
We are heading to Koh Lantra tomorrow and from there we will see what happens
Lots of love and we will update you once there
