John and Jane in Thailand

J and J have escaped the hurly-burly of life in the USA.

It’s About Time

with 2 comments

We have lived in Thung Wua Laen, Thailand for over two years.  It is about time I showed you around our little village.  It might help you understand why we are still here.  Let me preface the photo essay by explaining this is our low season and rainy season and I shot these images early in the morning (to do so in the afternoon would be too hot).  In other words, you won’t see blue skies or people in most of the shots.  Though we get a fair number of Western tourists, this is a Thai beach for both vacationers and weekenders.  We have a small ex-pat community, nothing like the hordes that populate Hua Hin, Phuket, or Pattaya. Even our nearest city some 15 kilometers away, Chumphon, doesn’t have much in the way of ex-pats.  We count ourselves lucky!!  Enjoy the tour.
