One Week To Go! .... Guess where I am now?!!

I'm in THAILAND !!! LOL !!!

Ah yes....

Nothing helps you to transcend both Samsara and Nirvana quite like a beach in Phuket, Darling...

So... with a week to spare and nothing much left to do in Dharamsala, i decided [having first consulted the gorgeous Michael back home in Dublin] to fly to Thailand.

I shook off the sand of India, went to the loo [one last time] and a few short hours and 3 flights later i arrived here in beautiful Phuket.
i know this place well enough to feel comfy with spending a week alone here...

and of course there's always my favourite sensory pleasure in the whole wide world... available all day every day... and it costs nothing...

Swimming in the warm blue-green ocean is unparalleled for me

i never seem to tire of it - i feel just like a child again spending all those long scorching summers with my mother in Port Marnock - playing all day on the beach, in the water, and eating beans on toast for supper after a good walk up to the Martello Tower and back to our caravan.
Yesterday, i had only just arrived and settled into my hotel when i just had to race down to the beach for a dip!

My Himalayan-oriented attire concealing my pale pink Irish body was soon the talk of the beach-bums and even sooner forgotten as i bobbed about in the gentle waves - soaking it all up - getting sun-stroke on my head and neck

oh, how we all laughed, as i had to go by ambulance to Accident and Emergency with 3rd degree burns - wailing 'please be gentle with me - i'm from ireland, you know... we like potatoes there but we can't take the sun at all, dear ... ouch! be careful Love! ... after all, i am just a delicate flower ... a fruit of the forest ...'

No... ONLY KIDDING! ... that never happened... just a little white lie for the sake of dramatic effect... creative writing Rule Number 13b...

But i AM in Thailand... swimming... getting a bit burnt... swimming some more...

Wish You Were Here...

Love, Bruno
