Phuket to Phi Phi

Thai names take some getting used to.

Because of political problems, we flew direct from Bangkok to Phuket.

We took a break from Phuket, which is Thailan'd’s most touristy island, to go to its least touristy: Koh Yao Yai. We were the only white people there on the Muslim island, which is the way we like it.

Regretfully, we haven’t met that many Buddhists-or that many Thais for that matter. We did get to see some ceremonies at the temple.

My horse was real feisty and stubborn. She kept shaking, stopping abruptly, nudging the guy leading her, and avoiding stepping in water. She made me nervous.


We are now on Phi Phi Island after doing some gorgeous snorkeling, preparing to take a bus to Bangkok where we’ll hang out til we get our visa to …
