World's Biggest Stone Frog! And swimming monkeys!

Well, actually we never did find the "World's Biggest Stone Frog", but we saw the sign that said it was there! We went on a little drive around the outskirts of Hua Hin to find the Cicada Art Market. We did find it and it was the most urban and artsy little market in a beautiful park, with an outdoor bandstand and gourmet food carts, and original art work for sale. Just like something you would find in a San Francisco park. Before we got there we happened on the sign to the biggest stone frog, but alas it eluded us. Instead we found a swimming pool that seems to have been put next to a temple just for the giant troop of monkeys that hang out there. These monkeys were diving in, pulling each other in and playing, and holding their breath to swim under water. It was fun to watch, but unfortunately while we were watching a bunch of the monkeys were busy covering our car in monkey poop. First order of business tomorrow will be to find a carwash.

Yesterday we went to the Hua Hin floating market and happened upon another baby elephant that we could just spend some time with. He loved bananas and was very affectionate so Baylie was in heaven.

We just finished eating at a very nice restaurant called "Mex" that was absolutely outstanding. I realize there's a chance that we may just be a little Mexican-food-deprived right now so I may be giddy from the real guacamole...but I would venture to say that it wasn't just the best Mexican food since we left, but it's right up there with the best Mexican food ever!
