This Thai woman has been my constant here...her name is Pupay, and she is the sweetest person you would ever want to meet.
Her lovely smile greeted me every time I went into the resort restaurant.
We joked that I was old enough to be her mother and she started calling me Mama. I think it should have been Big Mama, since I'm a head taller.
This is the owner of this small resort, an Irish woman named Leonora....she's a little camera shy.
There was nothing shy about this bar regular, Paddy, a wild man from northern Ireland.
I hung out occasionally with this couple, Ray and Kelly, from Calgary, Canada. They left Canada the same day I left the States and are also traveling for 10 months...quite the coincidence.
I don't want to forget any of them!
