Unbuckle Your Seat Belts, We Have Ko Lanta’d

Klong Dao Beach, originally uploaded by Mister Wind-Up Bird.

I’ve been in Ko Lanta a while now.  I’m not sure how long, exactly, because I’m not sure what day it is.  I know we have already extended our stay once, but that’s about it.  I guess I’ll find out when I post this and see the time stamp.

For now, time blurs together pleasantly, the day marked by the call to prayer from the nearby mosque. Coffee and toast delivered to the bungalow in the morning, swimming with Janelle, reading and writing at beachside bars and restaurants, then watching the sun go down while eating Thai seafood or drinking cocktails or swimming in the tropical-warm Andaman sea.

I sometimes feel I should be doing something, taking tours or kayaking or something.  And I think we will soon–we’ve checked out some activities, and I have to admit I am starting to crave a *bit* more stimulation.  But after an extremely busy few months, I’m also okay to just. Slow. Down.

For a bit.
