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.

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 install

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g

Paris part 1

So we had a wonderful time in Paris. Though I decided I am not sure that I know how to have a relaxing do not much vacation as well...the original plan was to just wander and take lots of tea breaks and just hang out and not do too much. Well that quickly went out the window as we hobbled back to our room every night with my feet hurting so much! It was amazing though and we saw so much and did so many fun things. A few weeks before we left I was looking at free Kindle books and found 100 free things to do in Paris so I downloaded it and it actually had some good ideas. It listed a lot of museums that are interesting and free which was good as most of them I never would have even looked as they seemed like they would be expensive (big fancy ornate buildings - At the one Raymond said this doesn't look free...but it was). I'm glad I downloaded it as it gave us some good ideas, even though we did spend money on museums as well. I took a billion photos so I might just post some
