Return for Civilization
Phuket Travel Blog› entry 72 of 99 › view all entries
After close to a month in Vietnam, Combodia and Laos we felt we were returning to civilization when we came to Thailand. Ana once again reunited with Starbucks and western retaurants and hotels could be found everywhere. We saw a movie in a modern movie theatre, ate a blizzard at Dairy Queen and started riding in real taxi's again. In Bangkok, I also spent my work clothing allowance at the tailor in the hopes that the package of clothes will still fit whenever they arrive in the US a few months ago.
From Bangkok we then moved to about 6 days on the beach. The cheapest flights were to the part of the country where the rainy season is going on currently and when we arrived the rain was pouring down. Our hotel had the weather forecase posted when we arrived and the next five days were listed as: rain, periods of rain, periods of rain, rain, rain.
Now we will return to the traveling with visits five cities and 3 countries in the next 10 days, but after that we once again have a rest in South Africa before starting our tour.
