Phuket, Thailand

Day 74

March 21, 2013

Phuket was one of my favorite port stops. I had spent a week there 9 years ago on a dive trip. Later that year (2004) a devastating tsunami struck the west side of the island. With Phuket being a major tourist draw, the cleanup & rebuilding was rapid. At our day stop on the eastside we opted for a elephant camp tour. Along with the obligatory bumpy ride, we rode in a water buffalo driven cart, learned about making rice, rubber & how to spend money at the terrific Thai restaurantWinking smile. We also enjoyed a more modern ride in a wagon pulled by a Ford (whose checks made this trip possible)  tractor. Next up: Sri Lanka.

Cheers,

Kelly
