thai-tinerary

here's the game plan:
.
today: last day in chiang mai
.
tomorrow: fly to bangkok, then find a bus to take me to a beach in pattaya. ..melissa bought a time-share on e-bay (7 days in pattaya for $20), but she's not going to go. ..her boyfriend is flying from the u.s. to chiang mai, and she's going to get a little more thai training here.
.
she arranged it so that i can use the time-share for a couple of beach days before heading to australia. ..the barter agreement was that i buy her a bottle of papaya-berry juice (or something like that) and a water. ..flashback to the movie dances with wolves, and you can almost hear the comment "good... trade."
.
pattya is supposed to be a fairly wild place, and the beaches are not supposed to be as nice as those visited at the beginning of this trip.
.
anyway...
.
on tuesday, it's a bus back to bangkok and an airplane to brisbane, australia!
.
i can only hope that the down-under crowd will be ready to throw a few shrimp on the barbie.
.
knowing the aussie beaches, you can look forward to some pictures that dr. evil might refer to as: "breath-taking."
