On the road

These days, we’re kicking it summer-style in Ko Chang, and island off the southeastern coast of Thailand, around where it meets up with Cambodia. It’s pretty jungly here–lots of overgrowth, showers in the afternoon, and plenty of wildlife (snakes, monkeys, lizards, etc.) which you’d expect in a jungle. Still, we’re not roughing it by any stretch. Today is motorbike day, so we’ll be patroling the island and trying to keep cool with the “natural air conditioning” while there’s no offshore breeze and trying to avoid the rain showers. Actually, yesterday while we were bussing from Bangkok, the winds were rattling the roofs around us…yikes…and then it was over in 10 minutes.
