In town Journey

4 Jun

Today we decided to do as the locals do and bus it to the nearest village, Flic en Flac.  It wasn’t too far away but it was nice to spend about $1.40 for the bus instead of $8 for taxi fare.  There are public beaches almost the entire way that make for a good view.

We went back to a restaurant we liked called Ah Youn for some delicious beef and egg noodles and absurdly good prawns fried smothered in garlic butter.  after that we walked to some shops and the grocery to look at the foreign products – very interesting.  Along the way we satisfied our ice cream cravings with some almond ice cream cones. Here is Kate with her Vanilla/Almond swirl.

Instead of catching the bus back we decided to save that huge $1.40 and take the scenic walk back on the beach past several public beaches and resorts.  the beaches were more littered with coral and shells than ours were so we sifted through to find some gems.  It was over a mile back but well worth it.

    You guys continue to have the neatest vacations. I was getting worried b/c I hadn’t heard from you for two days. Then I found that I did have posts on-line but they aren’t showing up on my phone. Strange!! Anyway, I’m glad you’re ok and having fun. Can’t wait to see you!
