Part Three: Day at the Seaside

5 Oct

As I opened the door, after a night out in the city, I was surprisingly met by Kevin.

I looked at him. Confused, I asked “What are you doing up??”
He just looked at me and said, “We have our field trip in like 1 hour, I am about to leave, you coming?”

I thought about it. Then said, “Ok, forget sleep, let me just print my assignment and lets go.”

So I was off again. Non stop. No break to rest. To lie down, and get a little snooz. I had to be at school by 7 AM to catch the bus.

We got there in no time and were soon in the bus.

We headed to a factory, to get a tour of the production facility. Lucky for me the ride was long enough for me to get some rest.

Cameras were not allowed during the tour, but after the tour we headed to the Sea side to get some delicious lunch.

As I walked up to the resturant I could not help but be drawn by this antique bike. Vintage bikes are one of my many passions. Both ones with motors and without.
This one just had so much character.

Rust, although usually thought to be bad, gives this bike every ounce of cool that it has. The classic bars, rusty light, and white wall tires gave me chills, as I became memorized with its beauty

Food as always was amazing. Fresh seafood. Never can go wrong with food in Thailand.

I walked out only to find more and more traces of the past.

We walked into the marketplace. On our way there I stopped at what at first seemed like a temple. No Buddha this time though.

Fearless, Lizzette was trying anything and everything there was to eat.

Fresh fish were everywhere.

Finnally I was able to find what I was searching for.
THE WATER.

Enjoying the locals.

Out in the distance I saw this awesome Honda Jazz.

I approached the owner only to tell him how much I digged his cool little car. He was thankful, and replied to me by offering me to eat some of his fish.
Such a cool guy. Just liking his car gave him enough for him to give me a free meal.

Really cool guy. The people I meet on the streets are what give my journeys their substance. Without them, it would just be another boring day.

I had to leave. We headed back into the bus, and ate more food.

What a couple of days those were.
It feels as if it were just one long blur of days. Working on no sleep has got me exhausted.
I still have not closed my eyes. I promised myself I would finish these stories, then I would take a little nap.

I hope you enjoyed the days as much as I did.
Until tomorrow.
