Krabi Town, Thailand - Day 2

Our second day in Krabi town was just a half day. We had until 2pm to hang out and explore before we headed off to Phuket. We got up early and went in search of breakfast hopeful that some of the places that were closed the night prior would be open - and luckily they were! Well a lot were still closed, but the best looking place was open so it was perfect.



Raymond's plate of food

 
And mine - only $1.25! Such a steal and super delicious. We both had rice noodles and yakisoba and ham log, and Raymond got some greens and I tried a curry looking thing with lots of weird vegetables I had never had before. It was pretty tasty, but it was a fish curry with mock fish in it and well I have never been a seafood fan so probably not my best choice. I just went by what things looked like since I don't read Thai. 

After lunch we went to explore Wat Kaew Korawaram up on the hill. 

There was this abandoned park along the stairway up to the temple with wild animal statues in

And kitties!

This was my favorite temple we went to. I loved how it was just white with blue accents. Really beautiful. I liked it much more than the really ornate ones. And instead of Buddha statues statues these gold balls. Not sure what they were as I couldn't read the sign.

All the streetlights downtown looked like this. There was supposed to be an art museum next to the temple, but we searched for it and it didn't look like it was open anymore. By that time I was getting way too hot so we went back to the room to cool off and relax until checkout. 


Oh and eat some treats we got at the breakfast place. This was a rice flour thing filled with sugar and sesame seeds and super tasty, though Raymond thought it was weird. 


And some sugary crunchy toasts

Some peanut brittle-ish stuff, though not sweet

And some green rice flour things which didn't have a lot of flavor. They were just squishy. 

Checkout was noon so we left our bags there and went to explore along the waterfront again. 

It is hard to tell, but you can see a few dots of light in the photo above and if you look closely (or click on the photo to enlarge it) you can see these skinny translucent fish. They were all along the shore. 

A tiny sandy area with lots more sand crabbies! The walkway was a ways above so we just stood by the railing and watched them all make their little sand balls for a while.There were so many of them. 

We wandered until I was overheating again and then went to cool off with some smoothies! Mixed berry for Raymond and watermelon for me (which btw the watermelon stayed frozen forever which is perfect when it is hot outside). 

Hogwarts Hostel - we saw a sign on the road, but I couldn't tell if it was a Harry Potter thing or not. Apparently it is! Though that Ron cut out is odd as it has that large white area where you put your head so it doesn't really look right...

 
Then back to the same place we had breakfast for some lunch before we headed out. So much food and so tasty! This was actually the last day of the vegetarian festival so the last of the tasty festival foods. Even though I wasn't the biggest fan of Thailand I would definitely go back for the festival again and eat all the foods! Yum!
After lunch we headed off to Phuket, but that will be a post for another day.

Railay Beach, Thailand - Day 1

  Getting to Railay Beach from Bangkok kind of takes forever. We had taken the overnight train from Bangkok to Surat Thai where we had to switch to a bus to take us to Krabi. I slept much better on the train that night. I had put in my earplugs and only woke up a few times. It was great. I woke up around 6 and was ready to go. Raymond was just like you are so wakey! I was just like yeah - I actually slept! So I was all refreshed and ready to go.    We had picked up some banana muffins in Bangkok for breakfast, as well as leftovers from our feast the night before, and the muffins were delicious! We should have gotten more of them than we did. So we got to Surat Thani and had to switch to a bus like I said. It was a bit confusing where we should go and what was going on, but we got on the bus and it took us into Surat Thani Town. That bus was really nice so I thought the trip to Krabi would be great. Only we had to wait a bit and switch buses and the new bus, the one that took us

The First Two Weeks

From In Berlin Hello! So I have been here just over 2 weeks now which is a bit crazy and things are finally coming together. I really like our apartment. Lots of room and it is very quiet as we are a block off the main road. We finally got some furniture last week so the place is not as empty and we actually have chairs to sit on and a bed to sleep in (that is not the noisy air mattress). I even have my craft table set up, but I am still looking for storage for my fabrics and such (the ones I wanted were out of stock). Yesterday I sewed up curtains for the front windows so we can have the privacy blinds (big metal blinds that come down and cover the front windows and are on most of the ground floor windows around town) up and Raymond won't freak out that people can see in.The bedroom/my craft room is pretty much done. The back of the house gets much better light during the day so I set up shop back there to take advantage of it. If I worked in the front rooms I would need the

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn insta
