Turkey day 

Here we are in Thailand on Thanksgiving. Believe it or not, people here don't observe this holiday! It's so strange! How could they not be overjoyed at the freedom we acheived in the States? Afterall, if that 'simple' act hadn't occurred, whose example would most of the rest of the world be trying to follow?

Enough of that. I don't have the energy to rant (or do I...). Paul-meet me in Fiji and we'll set this world straight!

How did we celebrate this festive occasion? By snorkling! Our boat (a long boat, which is a long wooden crat with a diesel smoke belching engine whose propeller is mounted on the end of a 20 foot pole. Different...) left the beach around 9ish and took us past 4 island type places where we were let off and floated around. It was great! The water was warm, the air hot, and I only got burnt on the backs of my calves (my back was fine. I reapplied. I guess I forgot that my legs also face sunward). In all we probably snork'ed for 2-3 hours, checking out some beautiful coral and fishies, some torn up coral, and sand. Fun times. If you ain't done it, try it. It's good stuff.

Our water logged selves then returned to our bungalow for showers and I got to read more of my newest book, Porno (sequal to Trainspotting, and rottingly raucaus and good). Dinner was et for seafood and now we're emailing. Euchre may follow. It's our last chance because Kristine flies back to Bangkok tomorrow morning to begin her journey back to CO (poor sap).
