We have wheels...now I just have to remember to STAY LEFT!

For the first time on this trip we are in a place where the traffic is calm, predictable, and polite. Driving actually doesn't feel like a suicidal proposition. So we rented a couple of scooters for the next few days and we had a blast just zipping all over our little town today. We explored some of the gorgeous Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park and we already know we will have to go back a couple more times. We rented headlamps and crawled and climbed our way through the bat filled Kaeo Cave, we found two outstanding beaches, and we got a look at a Dusky Langur - the most cartoonish little monkey I have ever seen (look them up, adorable!) We stopped at a roadside shack for some great stirfry and later found a stand with yummy grilled meat on a stick - you've gotta love meat on a stick!

On a side note, my latest hair dye job has gone slightly awry. I'm feeling very Morticia Adams-ish.

As long as you don't start looking like Cousin Itt, your family will not disown you. Tell Gomez to be careful, we all know how he likes 2 wheelers!

Getting my hair dyed next week.....but if I were you, I would not even try to keep it up - just get a fabulous do right before you come home. Kaley and I looked up the monkeys and they are very cute (as far primates go). The city, beaches, parks, and food sound absolutely perfect for the Pelhams! So happy for you all:-)

Can't wait to see pictures not only of Thailand but of the 'do. Where'd you end up getting the dye?

Hey Syd, I have bought cheap hair dye in several countries now. The color isn't always predictable and I usually don't get instructions in English, but at least it's not gray! I bought the last box at a Wal Mart type store near our house. Thailand is the perfect blend of remote paradise and modern conveniences.

You guys are SO gonna miss all this when you get back to the rat race, the pollutin, the traffic, etc. At least we DO have the Thai prostitutes!!
This is a life changing adventure.
