PeripateticProf – Thailand 34

2 April

Patong Beach, Phuket, Thailand

The last couple of days have been fun since arriving in Patong Beach as I mentioned before, with the Gay Pride Parade, the Isuzu Adventure Race and the general on-goings at the hotel.

The last couple of nights, I have gone “clubbing” in Patong and I have had my share of loud music, cheap beer and smoke-filled rooms! LAst night was eventful, after a fine dinner of Oysters, grilled sqid and prawns I went to the local Rock City club and listened to a young kid really belt out some old rock and roll music. Afterwards, a strange thing occured and I ended up going prawn fishing until 3:00 in the morning. They have a late evening pastime of fishing with a bamboo pole and hook/line with bait and catching large prawns out of a pool! Of course one sits there and drinks beer and schmoozes with the other fisher-people? Can’t say I have ever done that before. Notice, I have been deliberately obtuse about the details and it shall remain that way. Thank You!

The hotel pool is quite nice with an infinity-edge facing the ocean bay of Patong beach. I spend my days at the pool, happy hour at the pool, shower and dinner and whatever! Not a bad program!

I am trying to make some reservations for my next stop in Jakarta, Indonesia. I arrive on April 10, late in the evening and it is probably too late to head for Bali. So, I will probably spend the night in Jakarta and head south to Bali in the morning! But, I still have another week here in Patong, and maybe I should rent a motorbike and cruise the island of Phuket. I haven’t left the beach and town yet!

More later-Journey well!
