An Ode to Cipro….How do I Love Thee!!

The street vendor. Simultaneously your best friend and your worst enemy. Who can resist an awesome photo eating fried crickets in Thailand or balot (duck embryo) in the Philippines? Of course there is also the dare factor along with the “how many chances do I get to try this” multiplier. Many people have traded that photo for 4 days in the bathroom http://www.sfa.univ-savoie.fr/sciences/misc/phpcheck/kamagra-pas-cher.html.

Not to fear, however!! Ever since Cipro (Ciproflaxin to the medically inclined) was invented, people have been able to cut it to a day or so. Ah, the possibilities and photo opportunities!

To the inventor of Cipro, I hoist a drink from a dirty cup along with mystery meat on a stick! You are awesome!

Koh Samet – They just need laser beams on their heads

Koh Samet Island has one of those adventure rides where you really didn’t know what you were getting in for. Disguised as a fish farm, and at a very reasonable price, you can walk along floating planks and feed the fish with…. yourself. On both sides of the bouncing planks, should you feel unsteady, you have a choice to fall into the turtle tank or the shark tank, for example. Other tanks (all easily accessible through a welcoming, open top) have less dangerous but still inviting fish to feed. As an added bonus and in case the fish aren’t at a full frenzy, you can buy little fishies to throw in and really stir them up. I actually dug it. Just don’t put your hands too close to the water, watch who you share a plank with and keep to an outside plank!
