The Wind in the Willows

Waking up late, well, not late in general, just late for my trip, I hobbled down the one street town to grab some grub to rejuvinate me from the night before. Some roti canai and a tea later, I was back on my way to the beach to do some more relaxing and snorkeling, snorkeling and relaxing. I needed a book. Something to occupy my mind during the dead time at the beach. Not knowing what to do, and in a shop for another reason, I saw a place to rent books. Just like a library. After some thought, I chose the childrens, "The Wind in the Willows". A buck eighty pages, geared for children, the perfect book to not think too much about.
Most of the same fish were spotted while snorkeling, and a sea urchin could be seen hiding amongst the choral.
Ater packing for the next morning, I headed out to walk around the town a bit. On my way back, I was invited to join a family from KL who were grilling their own fish that they had bought from local fisherman that evening. Delicious, tuna and a few other fish that they didn't know the translation of and some whiskey. A banqet fit for kings. So friendly and accomodating, I spent the next two hours conversing with the family about food, Viet Nam, and any other topic that was on our minds.
