Last full day in Thailand
13.08.2012 - 13.08.2012 90 °F
We had a phenomenal last full day in Kamala, and are reluctant to head off tomorrow (but excited for our next adventures!) Basically, today was an exact replica of Saturday, so I'll try to be brief ...
We started with coffee on the patio and then went to breakfast. I went with the hardboiled eggs and veggies again, and tried a new fruit (mangosteen, you just eat the white part). Kevin did the coconut waffle again. I also got this beautiful flower arrangement since it was the Queen (of Thailand)'s birthday yesterday.
We spent the day alternating between the main pool and our patio (with a little gym time thrown in, of course). Kevin got to practice his "yoga" on the edge of the infinity pool ...
We headed out for another $9, 60-minute massage at the same place, and then went to dinner at the same place as Saturday (I know, so boring, but at least we got different things! We went a little overboard on the ordering ... Kevin started with the lobster bisque and the fried spring rolls, and I started with Spicy Thai Papaya Salad (soo good, but spicy is not an understatement!). Then, Kevin had fried noodles with shrimp and vegetables, and I had a soup of greens (I think morning glory) in coconut milk broth. Yes, I actually ordered a beer! After hearing they were out of wine, coconut water, and Diet Coke, and realizing that beer was $1, I decided to work on trying to hate beer less (9 years too late for college!)
We took this pretty sweet lit-up open-air taxi back to the hotel, and are spending the night here relaxing.
Oh, but don't forget the 7-11 stop for snacks ... this haul was $6 (and no, we haven't quite finished our haul from Saturday, but we figured we'd stock up now ... and this is why we work out every day, even on vacation ).
I'll leave you with two last pictures from today. The first is me standing on the outside of the hotel lobby, with the 24-karat-plated floor. The second is the main pool of the hotel lit up for the night.
We arrive in Hong Kong after midnight tomorrow night, so no promises on blogging. If not, we'll catch you Wednesday!
