Journal Entry:

"I don't know what time it is.  I don't care.

"Day 4 of our trip and we managed to find paradise.  Right now we are on a small island east of Thailand mainland called Ko Tao. Megan is at a low wood table next to me teaching a man from Czech Republic (Milosch), a woman from Mexico City (Maria) and the guest house owner--a bright and shining man named Saan, the card game Bullshit.  Laughter with 4 different accents echo over the open, slotted wood deck.  Waves crash on the beach behind me and I'm eating the best Tom Yam soup I've ever had.

"Our bungaloo is $6 a night, Pat Thai Gai is $1.50, the water is blue and clear.

"It took a long travel to get here--over 24 more hours of sleeper trains, buses and boats; sun burns; constipation, lackof food and heat; a digital camera sacrificed to the ocean gods--but we made it across the curtain of challenges to reach one of the most beautiful places left on the earth.

"None of the troubles that got us here matter."

Yea, but not much. Only when the subject comes up. We've been staying at a guesthouse and gotten to be good friends with the owner. I'll send some pictures. He had a friend die trying to save some older people. Very sad.

May Poseidon take great pictures. Looks like you are on the oppisite side of the tsunami hit. Are they still talking about it there?
