From a beach with no high-rise hotels

March 17, 2010

I’m typing this from my iPod using wifi I mooched from a place down the beach so bear with me.

I’m on the island of Koh Chang in the Sea of Siam. The beach here isn’t as spectacular as I expected, but they say it has something to do with being on the west side of the island. Jamie and I are going on a snorkeling tour in a little while, but I’ve been awake since 4am for no real reason. The tour will take us south and we will see 15 islands and stop at 3. The lady we booked it with said Koh Maak, one of our stops is the most beautiful place. I’m really looking forward to it and hoping I don’t get sea sickness.

There is so much to write about and not much time right now. We will be on this island until Friday probably. It took us about 8 hours including a few pit stops and a ferry ride to get here from Bangkok. It is shockingly hot and humid and the only time I’ve stopped sweating is when I wake up at 2am every day because our AC has out done itself. It is a beautiful and interesting place. This island reminds me of Costa Rica a little except I can’t even pretend to understand the signs.

I must go get ready. Hopefully more soon.
