Pheace in Phuket

My blog baby is not getting ignored; it's simply a matter of having little to blog on. Since I've arrived in Phuket, I mostly lay around the pool through the day, interspersed with Thai massages for 150 baht per hour (that's right at 5 bucks US). But yesterday I managed to moped taxi down to Nai Harn Beach where I lazed about all day. Surprisingly, the beach umbrella did not stop me from getting a burn down the front of my body. Lesson learned.

The white sand blazingly hot, I was grateful for the food vendors hawking their wares. And, for the record, fresh corn on the cob is EXCELLENT beach food.

I think you're brave to eat the street-vendor food, but I'm sure I miss out on a lot by skipping it. Phuket sounds lazy and relaxing, good place for chilling I expect. Thanks for the post, always look forward to seeing what you're up to and what you have to say.

Ha ha, jaymo- I've eaten street vendor food all over the world and never been sick from it. I think it strengthens your immune system. Well, ok, wait- there was some wild boar in the Philippines that did me in once but it wasn't a street vendor but, rather, a street butcher. And thanks for checking in on me....... =)
