then we went back to the area near the night bazaar for massages. we had aromatherapy oil massages for an hour. it was good. then we headed back to the hotel in a tuk-tuk which is a motorcycle with a backseat for two. it was fun.
we met matt and cameron and planned our evening. we went back to the night bazaar to eat and do some shopping. then we went to the saturday market. that was different and seemed much more local than the night bazaar. many more thais. it was fun. we made some purchases and wandered the streets before making our way back to the hotel. we had some late night fruit shakes, chatted, and then turned in.
again, i must say that i love thailand. why do you ask? the shopping of handicraft goodies, the flavors in the food, the lovely thai people, the bustling, small city, the lively vibe this place has......i could go on and on. oh, i forgot to mention the incredibly cheap massages.
