the Night Market
May 6, 2016
Hopped on a plane to Phuket. All airlines should be this cheerful.
Dave certainly looks relaxed.
What a view!!
Unfortunately, these lovely pool sheep belonged to the hotel so Dave couldn't bring them home.
In my opinion, this is the way to do a work trip. First stop by a tailor and get some tailored shirts. Then head for the beach. Thailand is very hot this time of year.
They drove around and passed a big sign that said, "Everything! We just everything!"
our driver drove us around & picked up many people. At one point he gave us stickers. He stopped and told us all #4 people get out. That is all he said the entire trip. Now we wait.
They went to a monkey show. Sounds kind of low-rent. This little kid was delighted with the monkey. The teenager later on, not so much.
Lastly, the stopped an saw a large Buddha. I think he looks serene.
Started the day with some laundry
Some Elephant riding in the middle.
And ended the day with a beautiful dinner. The macaroon topped with lamb is a little weird, but otherwise looks fantastic.
In an Agatha Christie story, the pick would have been a murder weapon for sure.
Then, off to bed accompanied by the Gekko under the bed and the cockroach in the bathroom.

Here's the backdoor view of the resort
They took a shuttle to the boat. The next group to be picked up didn't show---unhappy shuttle driver, but he got them there. Looks to be a nice boat.
An then, the beach! Only an hour--but some hours are VERY good.
Next stop, Phi phi island. Dave doesn't know why, but they got 1 hour here too.
May 9, 2016 maybe days are all confused with the time lapse.
I believe they spent most of this day doing inservice for teachers.
I think this is one of the best sunset pictures I've ever seen. Great job, Dave!
And another just to round things out.

Up at 4:30 a.m. to go to the airport to catch the veeeeeeery long flight home.
Back in the USA, the land of interesting airport art. (San Francisco airport)
This sculpture, which looks Thai to me, is very American, made of cereal boxes.
