Good day to you all!
I just wanted to drop everyone a line to check in...
Finally made it to Phuket, Thailand.... what a flight 12 hours to Singapore, 5 to Bangkok, and 1.3 to Phuket. Lot's of flying and lot's of stop over time, almost 12 hours of sitting around at foreign airports drinking, smoking, bullshitting! hmm,hmm sounds alot like home!
Today is day #2.. My buddy John and I made it through the first night with only a minor incident with the Thai police! (Note to self) do not jump over 12 foot high cement fences as a means of a shortcut. We were greeted by 2 less than impressed thai police, that insisted they detain John as means of insurance. I will visit him today in prison..I hope they where gentle his first night (just kidding!)
Nobody can prepare for the heat here! You get off the plane and the heat hits you like a piss mist! 36 degrees and muggy. If you are lucky you get a low of maybe 27! I am doing my best not to look like a tourist...failed horribly! Went to the beach 4 hours in the sun and I now look like fuckin tomato...it hurts to breathe.
To anyone thinking of going to Thailand..... bring only what you can wear...nothing else..I repeat nothing else! I brought a full-on travelers back pack..all of it's contents will be either burned, left behind or given away...I am not going to carry a 40 lbs back pack in this heat...plus you can buy everything for next to nothing!
I have now been here for 24 hours and I can tell you that we as Westerners are very fortunate people. I have never been to an area like this before. It is a very humbling experience to realize how good we have it in Canada.
