Krabi, Thailand

Terrible decisions.

Raining in Krabi Town, Thailand.

Maybe I should start telling you my plans? Maybe? Anyways, the plan I made while in Penang was to take about two weeks in Thailand (something I was OK with because I need to go to Bangkok in February anyways for the CP Biggest Eater contest – yes, yes I am planning to go to a Major League Eating competition while in Thailand. Yes, yes that rocks my socks. That plan consists of doing Krabi, Phi Phi Islands, and Phuket. And on November 25 I will fly to Siem Reap, Cambodia. And I pretty well have to stick to it because my visa will run out and my plane ticket has already been bought…

 

As soon as I got to Krabi, Thailand, it started to rain. Monsoon like drops pelted the town. I was hungry but didn’t want to leave my hostel. I went starving instead. I was convinced that I had made a terrible decision on where to go and that for the next two weeks I would be nothing but wet and miserable. To top it off, the cough that I had for three months and lost somewhere in Turkey made a triumphant return.

I went to bed hungry and miserable.

The next day I stuck around Krabi Town. I walked around, checking out the views and the weirdest traffic lights in the world.

I wasn’t sure what else to do with myself and didn’t want to go to the beach that day so I stopped in a store for a bottle of water and a popsicle. As I was debating what to get a man pointed to his recommendation.

We chatted for a bit, he was an expat from California. I got on the back of him motorcycle and he took me to lunch.

I got on the back again to go to his house to “meet his dog.”

See world, not a euphemism.

Though, I do admit, when he asked if I used an ATM card for money while traveling and then said “Be right back” my first thought was “Oh shit, he’s getting a gun.”

All is safe in Valryland though. But I seem to have a knack lately for meeting 60 year old men.

After he dropped me back at my hostel I took another walk around, checked out one of the temples, got some delicious fried dough balls of awesomeness from the night market.

And, although I still wasn’t sure how I felt about my plan, about Krabi, about anything, I did enjoy a rain-free day.
