Koh Tao livin’
It’s only 18′C (64′F) and constant rain here in Chiang Mai, so we took a minute to put together some fun stuff from Koh Tao in a vid.
When you’re travelling so much, a routine can actually feel pretty good, even if it only lasts a few days. We made a point to eat breakfast every day at the same relaxed little spot at the top of a hill. This particular hill was owned by a pitbull with a body chiseled from stone. Intimidating as that may sound, his demeanor was in direct correlation with his surroundings - chill. Catching him during his daily assault on his tire – flappy gums, wagging tail, panting from exhaustion – is a routine I could get used to.
The little things about living in SE Asia are sometimes the best. Driving around with nothing to do, we just decided to spend some time comparing prices on standard goods in a grocery store - USA v. Thai. In the back were two kids jumping around half-naked in their playground of cereal boxes, paper towel, and metal towers. Their creative energy was so strong. One can only dream of capturing a fraction of the imaginative thoughts flowing through their little brains as they scurried around. Their mom stocked the shelves – pausing only to yell at them to calm down every minute or so. These kids are going places.
