7/2 – Every few days, we put on our shoes and walk the three kilometers to the nearest little town, Bang Bao, just for something to do.
Here there is a single street with several ATMs, a 7Eleven, and a pier crammed with tourist shops and restaurants.
There are signs here in Russian, a testament to the Russian tourists who used to visit here. Since the decline of the ruble, the Russians aren’t traveling here anymore, and local businesses lament this loss.
There is a wat here, but nobody was home except this guy:
The pier ends in a lighthouse, beautiful against the clouds.
I promise, there will be some action in my next post – stay tuned!
