23rd and 24th July
Sunday was another warm day, no rain, partly cloudy. We met some old friends who are here on holiday - Steve and Fran used to run the Bundu Cafe on Utila. I first met them 10 years ago when I was doing my divemaster course and they were customers. A couple of years later I went back to Utila and found they were still there! They had a baby and decided to head back to the UK. Their "baby" is now 7. They have a cafe in Loughborough (England) called the Baobab Cafe (www.baobabcafe.com). Time passes.
We picked them up from the Dusit Laguna, and went for lunch with them to Laem Hin Seafood. Aside from my usual Yam Gung Seab (dried shrimp salad) we ordered Yam Kai Bla (fish roe salad) - Delicious! For 4 adults and the kids to eat cost 600 Baht (15 dollars, 8 quid).
After showing off our house, we took them up Buddha Mountain for some views. It's great up there. One can only imagine what it will be like when it's finished.
Monday has started sunny again - now this is normal July weather. It's a good month to visit Phuket.
