May 14, 2009 - Goodbye Thailand

Guess who, Well we are awaiting our driver to take us to the airport. Our time in Thailand has been wonderful. We spent last eve in Chewang Beach. It's the most popular place on the island. Good food and spent a bit of money. Tom bought a U-Boat watch. He saw one in Aruba for $5,000 and bought one here for $65....what a steal. Well back to reality tomorrow. We sure do miss our Gizzie though. Off to Singapore for one night and then to Calgary by Sat eve. See you all soon. M&T

I bought this chinese medicine that was supposed to be for itching but not sure what it really is. We went on a tour of the island ( by longtail boat) two days ago. Of course we had to pick a day with the sea was a bit rough. I managed not to feed the fish though ( sea sickness). It took us about 5 hours. We stopped in 4 different places to snorkel. The tiger fish (...
