We spent three nights and two days on Koh Samet on a lovely cove shared with only 8 other bungalows. It was amazing. I had no idea Thailand was so wonderful. I will try to post some pictures in the next few days.
Now, after a songthaew, ferry, bus, taxi, plane, and another taxi, we are in our hostel in Chiang Mai. It's a beautifully cool night. We walked down the street from our hostel in search of dinner and stumbled on an absolutely delicious French restaurant. I had beef slow roasted in wine with salad, pasta, and fresh baked bread for less than four dollars. Do I have to leave this magical country?
