The Pelhams are on the road!

Well, we had been sitting pretty still for a while trying to plan our next hop around this beautiful country and we finally decided we need our own transportation. So we rented a car for the next month and plan to drive around finding cool stuff and drop the car in Bangkok at the end of February. So far it is working out great. We found a neat little bungalow for the night near Khao Lak beach and tomorrow we are going to head to Khao Sok National Park and look for those jungle treehouses. This is much better than figuring out where we want to go first and then getting a taxi or bus to take us there! The road signs that are all in Thai are a little frustrating, but every once in awhile there's one in English to set us straight.

We did make it to see Phuket Fantasea last night. It was a lot of fun, but it was the weirdest show I have ever seen! It was mostly Thai cultural dances, and sort of a musical story telling of Thai myths, but then all of a sudden there was a circus clown/magician sawing a girl in half and making a tiger appear. There were acrobats from the ceiling and chickens and goats running across the stage, and then it seemed to finish with more cultural story-telling. Baylie absolutely loved it! There were carnival games to play (Shawn took forever at the target shooting booth - of course the "gun was crooked", but he eventually managed to win a stuffed elephant). I have to say sometimes the most ridiculous touristy thing around is pretty fun.
