Big Al gets back to blogging from Phuket, Thailand


So I've been a little lagging on the posts, but I'm on vacation. Actually, the real reason is that I lost my digital camera USB cord so I can't upload pictures. Sucks eh? Anyways, I did manage to get pictures from my diving trip off the coast of the Phi-Phi Islands in South Thailand. I went out all day on June 3rd to do 2 dives. I'm considering getting my diving certification so I can do this more often.




A few other highlights:
- Checked out the temples of Ankor Wat in Cambodia. I also saw my old neighbor, Anson, at the airport. In addition to Van, I've seen 2 friends from San Jose.
- Went on an elephant trek in Chiang Mai and I got to drive the elephant
- I went to a caberet show with Rita in Phuket. Warning to all my guy friends - check for the adam's apple. These "lady boys" were really good looking.
- I rented a motor scooter for the week. I got a ticket for not wearing a helmet. I thought I was going to go to jail. In the end, I had to go to the police station and pay a $7 USD fine. =P

I'll post more once I can get my cable. I think I left it at my hotel in Bangkok. I'll be there on June 5th and then home on June 6th.

BTW: For the future bachelor party planning purposes, $25 USD in Phuket goes a long way. ; )

hey al - this is cam (van's girlfriend). just checking out your site and reading up on the rest of your trip. sounds like you did a ton of stuff. van and i also went scuba diving in ko tao. anyhow, it was cool to hang out with you and rita in bangkok. hope you're doing well... :) post more pics!
