*I apologize for my absence as we moved and had a HUGE flood, argggg more on that later. BACK to Thailand, as I'm determined to finish this out :)
Day 6 started out with another delicious breakfast at Baan U Sabai, and you can see the "Traditional Thai Breakfast" photographed below. It consisted of pork, white rice, and cucumbers. Plus, it came with green chilies, which we loved and added a great additional kick in flavor. It reminded me more of a lunch meal, so it was a little unusual for me ... but we wanted to eat the way the Thai do.
One of our favorite guys who made us espressos every morning
We stayed in the top rooms with a balcony overlooking the pool,
but I thought the rooms that opened up tot he pool were quite unique.
I think he was on his 2nd or 3rd espresso - we are coffee/caffeine junkies!
Then, we checked out and moved AGAIN to Saithong Guest House. I loved this place as it was so reasonably priced, directly in the middle of all the action of Old City where we could walk everywhere. It had such a cool field and was seriously like a tree-house.
Then, we were off to explore ...
Seeing one of the many temples in Old City
I love graffiti and even blend in, can you see me?!?!
Oh just typical things at the market - FROGS, SNAKES, and FISH!!!
Lunch at Hot Chili - such a fun little spot
Next Thai adventure ... go to a Thai Boxing Match. This was a must-do for Gabe with me just being along for the ride, ha! We got VIP tickets sitting ring side, woot woot!!
Here's the matchups
Just wee little kids ... they sure start them young.
Yes, girls boxed too ...
About 8 guys got in the ring and matched blindfolded, hysterical!
The main fight
Late night dinner at a street vendor, perfection, more Thai food please.
Then dessert with a banana pancake, a first of many throughout Thailand.
Stay tuned for my next post, the MOST exciting day of the trip ...
