I'm heading to the airport in Koh Samui in about 30 minutes's nice, but I don't think I'll be returning anytime soon. I'm going to take a prop plane back to Pattaya for a little skydiving before I go back to Ayutthaya for to explore the ruins and temples there. I think I will be renting an 2 room apartment in Ayutthaya for about $70 a month as a home base for the next couple months. I have an American Pitbull puppy named "Pad Thai" that will be staying there while I'm gone.

I've been taking it easy for the last few days and my head is feeling much better. I've spent time roaming the island on a little 125cc scooter and trying out some of the ex-pat restaurants here. There is a Californian from SF that has a Cal-Thai fusion restaurant here on Koh Samui that is fantastic. The boss is a great guy a speaks Thai and Lao quite well. Unfortunately he had no California wine for me given the 450% import tax that Thailand has placed on US wine. (Neither he nor I are interested in Sutter Home for $50 a bottle)...

I better pack up, I'll be posting more from Pattaya.
