Phi Phi was nice but Koh Lanta is so much more quiet.  At 18 miles long it is much bigger than Phi Phi. After a couple hours relaxing on the beach we rented motorbikes and toured the island.  It is so undeveloped, lots of natural beauty still here.  We saw a westerner who had just had a motorbike accident.  It looked pretty bad, The next chance we had we stopped and put our helmets on.  That was the 2nd motorbike accident we happened upon.  The 1st was Chiang Mai, a car driver hit a girl on a bike at a pretty high rate of speed.  When we passed the accident and John saw the car he said it had just passed our tuk tuk and was driving fast and switching lanes.  Scary!

We had dinner near our room.  A really nice young couple ran the restaurant and had a cute toddler.  It was an OK meal but the couple were so nice..  We had to use their toilet which was off the kitchen.  This was a rather new building  but the kitchen was so basic.  Its amazing they can run a restaurant out of it.  It appeared they lived there as well, you could see their bedroom off the kitchen.

Today we woke up early and hit the road on our motorbikes again to explore more of the island.  It is so nice here.  There is more to tell but I will share the Thai experience in my closing entry, as this is another world.
