I can't really separate my blogs by country. I'll try to give an overview of
Thailand so far. First we went to Phuket, but I was working all day and all I
really saw was the port. Everyone said it was amazing and rode elephants and fed monkeys and I'm still pretty upset about it all. Then we were in Ko Samui which is an island. I think it's a popular vacation spot for it's beaches but I stayed in the main town or city. We ate plate after plate of amazing food and my bill was $4, honestly. I've noticed that food and transportation are so cheap in these places but everything else is pretty similarly priced. Luckily all I ever need is food and transportation. They are still celebrating the Chinese New Year I believe because people kept lighting off fire crackers and presenting huge displays of food outside their shops. I don't think the food was for eating so much as something ceremonial. I saw a lot of pig heads in Ko Samui. I have a quick video of one of the firework displays but one of them shot off and hit me in the chest so the video is very short. You can hear me scream just before I turn it off.
