Phi Phi Leh bay and crystal clear water

We just finished our first week of school. We spent the last week studying and learning how to teach english. Pretty boring so sorry there hasn't been a lot of action on the website. But, we did have to celebrate our first week done with a trip to the beach. We travelled to Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh islands. More commonly known as the islands from the movie The Beach. We had a great time, even though the water was a little rough. A few people didn't have their sea legs and got a little sick. We had a great time hanging out at the beach and relaxing for a few days. The pictures don't really do this place justice and it really is one of the most beutiful places I have ever seen. Aside from the fact that this is one place that was really hit by the Tsunami. The island is shaped like an H, and the Tsunami went right over the middle, which was were most of the buildings were, so needless to say there is still a lot of damage. But it is still breathtaking. Now it is back to the classroom, but we have more trips planned for upcoming weekends so we will update it as much as possible.
