melissa's time-share (pattaya)

thai massage training is over, and lenny is solo again. ..i love time alone. ..interestingly enough, it gets lonely out there, at times. .
.
just when you thought you wanted to be alone, you crave companionship. .
.
.it must be a bipolar order. :)
.
anywaaaay... the airport, i went “indiana jones” and let a taxi driver (nai) talk me into a taxi instead of a bus to pattya. ..for the next two days, i’ll be in the time-share that melissa got on e-bay for -- get this -- less than $4 per day!!!
.
the name of the resort: “view talay holiday resort villas.” ..here are the pictures:
.
gated entry:
. .
the room, from the outside:
. .
the entrance (foyer):
. .
that’s “twook,” the receptionist:
. .
the bedroom:
.
the kitchen (fully stocked with cookware that’s never used, because it is sooooooo cheap to eat out in thialand). ..why cook?
.
the fridge (fully stocked with all sorts of trouble):
.
the bathroom (marble):
.
the shower (this is the first enclosed shower that i’ve seen so far). that’s over 10 different hotels & bungalows in seven different foreign cities. ..can’t wait to take a shower. ..rumor has it that there’s even hot water!
.
the pool (yes, willy, those are dolphins painted on the bottom). ..i’ve already gone for a swim, as part of my shaman-prescription from an earlier post.
.
the beach (not the best, but no complaints, ever!):
.
one of the side streets jomtien beach: and (of course), the venture would not be complete without your friendly neighborhood thai 7-eleven. ..thailand has more 7-elevens than pawtucket, r.i. has bars!! ..but i digress...
.
thank you for the room, melissa! ..i know that you are having a great time in chiang mai!

  2. Now that I think about it, I should have gotten the shaman to write down his prescription.

    It would be priceless! :)
