Thailand II

Phuket, Summer 2016
I met a girl on Tinder who I'd seen in a documentary before. We went out to Bangla Road with her boyfriend and housemates, all Americans teaching English in Thailand. We were mobbed by street promoters and talked into sports bars, ice bars, girl bars... I rode around on the back of their scooters, flying through the picturesque winding hills and valleys of the island. The next morning we visited a rasta bar overlooking the ocean before spending the afternoon at a quiet beach smoking a joint and eating street food. In the taxi to the ferry wharf, our driver decided to bring his entire family along for a day trip, so we ate snacks from 7/11 with his wife and daughters.
