We arrive in Phuket after a rainy goodbye to Phi Phi Don.  The 2 hour fairly rough ferry ride proved to be too much for some of the other travellers.  It is currently the Buddhist Lent, so there were some crazy parties going on near by our guesthouse that we checked out briefly on our way to find dinner.  the wierdest thing was that the buddhist lent celebration looked more like a college party with all the participants at one wearing yellow shirts, drinking, dancing, and being crazy, then in the opposite corner of the mud playing field they were gathered at the partyers where wearing white and the other corner red.  perhaps it was a coincendence and they were just partys and not lent celebrations but that is what are waiter told us.
today it is raining and for the first time our plans to explore out doors have been cancelled due to weather.  however, i'm happy to feeling 100% after dealing iwth some sickness for a few days back in krabi.  I think we will probably leave for bangkok by land, or fly to chiang mai tomorrow.   its a shame because i wanted to spend some time checking out the area here but its supposed to rain the next few days.
don't worry though, all of you who are bursting with anticipation, lol, i'll be sure to blog about whatever happens next! haha
