A Travellerspoint blog

I can see clearly now the rain is gone....

We left Prachaup Khiri Khan this morning and drove to a little aquarium near there. It said there was also a butterfly garden, which is really why we went, but we never saw anything relating to butterflies. Hmmm. The aquarium was pretty weak, but it only cost a total of $2 for all three of us to get in, so I guess it was the best two dollar aquarium I have ever seen!

Before we left this morning, Baylie and I sat on a bench surrounded by hundreds of very peaceful monkeys. There's actually a big sign that says "Feed Monkeys", so they are apparently very well fed which is probably why they are so peaceful. There were several moms with their brand new little babies so we were perfectly happy to sit there for a long time watching them. At one point a young monkey with a badly hurt hand came over and sat on the bench next to me. He held out his hand and whimpered a little. I think he was saying, "Look at my hand, it really hurts." Just about the saddest thing ever! I talked to him for a while, then he took off.

We're at a cool little guesthouse now called "Happy Mind" and I have to say we are all in a happy state of mind!

Big butterfly celebration in Pismo coming up....so you can see those when you get home. I'm afraid you won't be seeing monkeys, though. You're at Happy Mind, but you didn't give the name of the town...? Maybe you're back in Hua Hin? Erin gets back in a week. Can hardly wait to see her pictures. I'm guessing no elephants...maybe monkeys, though. :-)

Awwww, the little monkey with the hurt hand reminds me of Curious George. Were you wearing a big yellow hat?
