Updated: Photos, finally!

Coconut Cocktail

We finally found an internet café that can burn images from my CF card to CD, so photos are on the way. Unfortunately the computer doesn’t have the software that I want to put the images into a slideshow (is Photoshop CS too much to ask for?!), so I’ve enlisted the help of Bender to do that for me. In the mean time, enjoy this shot of a coconut cocktail that Kristy and I enjoyed by the pool at Tongsai Bay. Yum!

Since moving to Central Samui Beach Resort, the “things to do” list has been overwhelming. Yesterday we found a local coffee shop that serves the fanciest coffees for 55 baht or less (< $2). After coffee, we strolled along the road-side markets, bargaining here and there for various goods. I can't believe the prices on Billabong, Oakley, Quicksilver, Diesel, Von Dutch, etc. gear here - and who'd have thought that such multinationals would choose these road-side shops as preferred venders!

Kristy at the markets

Generally, food here has also been a lot cheaper than the resort prices we were paying at Tongsai Bay. Yesterday’s lunch was about $7 total; dinner was somewhere around $20. Internet access is also cheap – about $2 for an hour!

Anyway, I’m off to the markets again, to buy some more “authentic merchandise”. Stay tuned for more photos soon!

Updated: Bender has kindly put together the slideshow of pictures for me. You can find it here.

    And people thought Gerrod was a computer geek. :)&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;Really he is just a journalist trapped inside a programmer’s body.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;Great photos though.

    of course im expecting a nice pair of oakleys…theer are some great deals there, I once scored a Rolex watch for only $1000, and it only uses two aa batteries – I mean who would have thought Thialand would be such a mecca for internatioanl designer items..
