A Thai 4th of July

Happy 4th of July!  I hope everyone back home had a relaxing, food- and fun-filled day, with lots of fireworks.  Our day here in Koh Samui was relaxing, but as Jesse put it, it was one of the most “unpatriotic” 4th of July’s that we’ve ever had!  No surprise there, though.  To make it special, a few of us set off some paper lanterns from Bophut Beach near Fisherman’s Village.  It was a beautiful night with the full moon and cool breeze, and it carried our lanterns as far as you could see.

Today is laundry day!  We are starting to get out things together to leave for Bangkok.  I can’t wait to get to the city!

That puddle stayed there for three days after the big rain storm. It’s so humid there’s no chance of it going away any faster!

Taking a break from picking up bottle caps to see what I’m doing!

Always a nice sunset at the lake
You can’t begin to imagine how many mopeds there are in Thailand..
