The rain is back which is putting a serious choke hold on my reason for coming here - a day trip to the Emerald Cave on the island of Ko Muk - as recommended by my friend Bill. Its not that it rains all day but it has been raining for a few hours each day and is almost always overcast and no one wants to go snorkeling when its not at least mostly sunny so I am just going to wait it out and hope for a nice day.
I must comment on how easy it is to totally whittle away a whole day doing nothing. As many of you know I have always exceled at this but I feel that I am working on a whole different level here in SE Asia. Yesterday I rode a rented motorcycle down to the southern tip of the island. After that I checked some ferry schedules, spent some time e-mailing, rearranged the contents of my backpack which were laid out on my bed, drank some fanta, walked down to the beach...
I was finally able to visit Ko Muk and a few other islands around Ko Lanta including Koh Ngai. I was rather disappointed with Ko Muk and the Emerald Cave as the area looked like a ship had sank in light of all the other bodies in the water.
