Thai long boats
Stopped at a Buddhist Temple during my scooter tour
View from top of the Temple
I donated money to the Temple re-building project and wrote a dedication on one of the slabs I bought. It will be used for the Temple Floor.

A couple enjoying a romantic dinner
On this day tour I meet Joshua and his girlfriend Chloe? Joshua is from New Zealand and Chloe is from Australia. They are going to be living in Melbourne. They are super nice and we bond over our love for Mexican food. I share with them my super secret (not really) guacamole and Margarita recipes. We decide to meet up back on Koh Samui for dinner and drinks at a Mexican restaurant. Also on this tour were some what I politely will say demanding Israelis. Yes Israelis were everywhere in Thailand. There were 4 couples all in their mid forties early fifties. It was quite entertaining watching these mid forty year old women take a million pictures on the boat in different model poses. Were these women trying to make a Calendar? If so they had no business doing so. In addition, they bitched about everything. The lunch was not good enough, the life jackets were not clean enough for them to Kayak. When we finished Kayaking they cut the line to get their boats out of the water first. It's very interesting when you travel how a few choice people can shape your opinion of an entire country. I can now see why Americans have such a bad reputation because a few rude and demanding Americans can make others think our entire country is this way. Come on Israel we need better representation!
