I am going to go into details of what I did everyday. You can pretty much guess, swim, beach, eat. 🙂 But I am going to tell you some of the amazing Thailand hospitality.
At lunch the one day, I was just leaving the hotel when Wan the owner says, “Rob, come here!” I come into the lobby/kitchen area, and Wan starts pulling out plates of Thai leftover food. He tells me to eat, enjoy. Trust me, this food is amazing!
On another occasion, Wan is getting onto this motorcycle and says, “Come with me to my restaurant.” and he gives me a ride to his Seafood Restaurant. Next time I come here, I am going to try it. I did try his Seafood from the Market, and it was pretty awesome. He BBQ’d the fish and brought it back to the hotel deck for me to eat.
When I was at the beach, I had enough sun and wanted to come back. I was too early to catch a truck bus, so I started walking. A local pulls up beside me and says, “Get on!”. He gave me a ride back into Naban for free!
The two ladies I see selling street food all the time, invited me to see loi krathong celebration, during the super moon. I didn’t party with them, but I did stop by and say hello for a few minutes that night.
On a different note, I did meet two backpackers from Denmark on my last night. We had some great conversations. One of them was about the war between Denmark and Canada. It is over an Island called Hans Island. Denmark has claimed it theirs through Greenland treaty, but I guess Canada thought it was ours. So far, only two bottles of liquor have been killed during this war. The first was Denmark left a flag with a bottle of Schnapps, and a note saying, “Welcome to Denmark!”, and the other was later. Canada arrived on the Island and left a bottle of Canadian Whiskey, a Canadian flag, and a note saying, “Welcome to Canada!” for the Danish to see.
Yes, that is how Canadians resolve issues!
Just to complete my Koh Larn Experience, here are some pictures from under the water!
