July 18: Ahh...Paradise

Today's report isn't full of cultural significance, self-reflection, or even any remotely educational content. Mainly it's just an excuse to show off in our bathing suits on a glorious, sandy piece of paradise. Karon has a beautiful stretch of beach, and because it's low season for tourism, we had the place mostly to ourself. The surf was a little rough, but we managed to have fun despite not being able to go very far in (there were severe riptides). Doreen and I got fitted for custom-tailored suits by a lovely man in town, as the prices here for custom needlework are hard to pass up! More details in tomorrow's report.
