Where I stayed

Flag of Thailand  ,
Monday, August 6, 2012

Today was really good.  I woke up and went to the 11 AM show at the snake farm.  It was this guy and his three teenage assistants.  They milked the venom out of these poisinious snakes.  It was so cool.  They have this farm to educate the people and so that when people in thailand get bit by snakes, they will have the anti-venom produced at this farm.  I think they inject the venom into horses to then get the anti-venom.  

I was walking around this shady cage of the King Cobra, one of the most deadly snakes in the world.   It looked like what they caged the veloco raptors in in Jurassic Park.  All of a sudden it was fully erect and staring straight at me (TWSS) with it's big ear like things sticking out.  Cool.

Good Thai lunch again.  I've been to three local restaurants and they have all been great because they were the ones recommended by the hostel lady.

Then I got one of the best massages ever, a traditional Thai massage.  It was recommended.  Not shady like most places around here.  Two hours of paradise.  You get dressed in a karate kid outfit and they put you on a mattress on the floor.  The lady bends, twist, rubs, you all over.  She uses her arms, hands, feet, and bends you like a pretzel.  It was so great.  It lasted for 2 hours and only cost US $15.  Amazing.

I also hate how everyone on the street comes up to you to try to sell you something.  Clothes, tuk tuk rides, food, whatever.  It's annoying.  And they trick you too, they help you with directions and then expect you to buy something from them  I mostly ignore them.  I walked by this guy and he showed me a flier with all these scantly clad women on it.  I shook my head no.  Then he said, "You like boys, sir, I have boys too."  

Also crossing the street is no good.  The cross walks don't have green lights to go.  You have to wait for a break with the tuk tuks, motorcycles, and cars and just run through.
