Flag of Thailand  , Phuket,
Sunday, August 20, 2006

I arrived in Bangkok (BKK) after a few wonderful segments on Turkish Airlines. One kid, who was probably about three and old enough to be severely beaten about the head and neck, did not stop screaming for 5.5 hours of my flight into BKK. Why is the drugging of children to make them sleep deemed inappropriate?

After a quick stop in BKK I jumped on a connecting flight to Phuket to meet Jerramy and Lee (who will henceforth be referred to as the kids).

BTW, YEAH for Air Asia!!

ANYHOW, I arrived a few hours before them and left a message to meet me at 11PM for the fun to begin. I slept very well after returning to my hostel at about 4AM. Despite my earlier descriptions of the Thai islands, the kids are surprised a bit with the rampant prostitution and the general sex industry here. As a seasoned traveller to Thailand I barely even notice. Ha - it's hard not to notice when a hookah reaches out and wipes the greasy palm of her hand across your forehead. ICK! Do not touch The Rodster!

The party was still going on outside but we were done in for the night. The kids have a nice, posh hotel right on Patong Beach with a great pool and restaurant. We've spent the first few days just lounging around the area and relaxing. Good times. At about 10% of the cost, I'm sharing a room with an Ozzie about 10 minutes from the beach.

Just a quick update that I've arrived - no pics for now as I left my USB cable in my room (I hope). I'm off to meet the kids near the beach and eat tons of spicy Thai seafood! I AM IN MY HAPPY PLACE!
