I thought I'd have some pictures from the beach to share with you by now, but sadly it has been raining here on Koh Samui (which is an island in southern Thailand). Hopefully the rain will pass soon as I'm itching to be out in the sun. That said, we've been enjoying a couple of lazy days just reading and napping and it has felt good!
Since I can't share any pictures from the beach just yet, I thought I'd share some pictures from our trip to the Aberdeen Floating Village in the Aberdeen harbor. This harbor is full of junks, sampans, and a many other types of boats (some being fancier than others). Something interesting I learned is that there are still many fishermen who live out on the boats with their families and live a fairly traditional lifestyle with fishing being their livelihood.
This floating village was definitely a neat place to visit. The most eye-catching thing for me was simply the contrast between all the high rises and the very traditional fishing boats.
The front and back of a famous seafood restaurant.
Our sampan driver.
Lots of fancy boats and working boats.
I just realized that I haven't put pictures up of me (or Matt) in a while. Oops.
I will add that to the ever growing list of things to photograph and fix on this lovely blog of mine!
