...Mmmmmmmmmassage....

I had a nice, simple breakfast then headed to Ao Nang for a day of beach and a Thai massage!

Lovely, in that Thai hurts-so-good kind of way.

Ao Nang itself was pretty, as long as you keep your back to the land and just look at the water. It makes Venice Beach look simple and quaint. They even have a McDonald's. Yech. Tourist mecca. Lots of new stuff as well, as they got hit in the tsunami, too.

Best part of the day, besides the massage, was the fab samosa I grabbed for a take-away treat on the bus ride home. Yummmmm....

Best thing I didn't buy? Barbie in Thai silk, handmade dresses (and expensive! $7 per outfit or more!).

On the bus on the way back, I met a Canadian girl named Julia who was just arriving to volunteer. I helped her find her girlfriend's accommodation, because she seemed a little nervous. She'll have a great time, though.
