May 22, 2011 - More Paradise

First of all, many apologies for taking so much time between posts, we haven't been too busy but internet connections with any speed are very few and far between amongst these Thai islands. The past 10 days have consisted of some much needed rest, relaxation and sun time. In between, we celebrated Susie's 27th birthday with a day of relaxation, good meals and wonderful weather and company.

Jul 28, 2007 - A Break in the Peace and Quiet of Ko Phi Phi (Matt & Laura)

Matt: "There was an article in the paper a few days ago about the tsunami warning system. Locals don't believe the towers work, won't participate in drills" I explain to the couple in the neighbouring bungalow. "They don't think it works because they've never heard it go off, but there hasn't been a tsunami so why would it?" We shake our heads. "I've never seen the tide this far out," I observe. "Must be the full moon." Rocks jut from the turquoise blue water. A few powerboats lay beached on the sand. Then the alarm sounded. A long whine...
