Thai Animals

I have no exciting coherent news. Recently life has been a happy passing of classes, yoga, massages, new foods, sunshine, exploring (found the English bookstores!), and being with cool people. Tomorrow I will be waking up before 5am to go to my first Thai Kickboxing class. We cooked banana sticky rice steamed in a banana leaf, sweet&sour pork salad, green chicken coconut curry, and cashew chicken stir fry in our second Thai cooking class. A couple friends and I swam at a very close-by waterfall a few afternoons ago. I finally found a new yoga studio that I’m impressed with and will continue to go to. I got a $7 hour long foot massage and reflexology today by former womens’ prison convicts (yeah)(Dad, yours are still better!). This weekend we will be going to Doi Inthanon for a day trip. It’s a national park (highest point in Thailand) where we’ll do some hiking and outdoorsy stuff.

For those who I shocked by complaining about not quite enjoying my time here, that has all passed and I am embracing this crazy experience and am fully accepting it now. Acceptance and impermanence and all that good stuff, you know?

Anyways – here’s some cool animals.

Emily and I hanging with some MONKEYS at Koh Poda (Poda Island). We fed them bananas and they snatched them greedily.

This is what snorkeling looked like. You can’t see the translucent jelly fish that suddenly are surrounding you and give you sharp stings for hours afterwards.

Dude holds sea urchin before handing it to me. Scary, but thrilling.
