Today will be a day of laziness. We actually sleep in until 7:30 am or so. For some reason I'm really hungry and in addition to my usual 1 egg/toast/fruit/juice/coffee I have an additional egg and 2 pancakes. Yikes!! It's nice to be able to just sit and have a leisurely breakfast and watch all the traffic on the river.

|Wonder what this is?|
|Fruit station usually has 6 or more varieties|
|Potatoes, bacon, sausage, pancakes, danish, bread, etc.|
We decide to check out the local market in town. Ko is our driver again. Cost 12000k which includes the waiting. He drops us off and we arrange to meet in 1 hr. As we wander around I buy some tanaka which I thought was a sunscreen (later learn it's for face whitening??) It's made from a tree and pounded to make a paste. I think I paid 1000k for the jar. I buy some postcards and a nice bamboo picture frame for 2000k. In the market there's lots of produce, flowers, and other items. It's very busy but interesting to see.

We are at the pool by 12 noon. It's a very hot day to do nothing much. Around 3:30 I decide to give myself a mani/pedi and a facial. I brought those toiletries with me and my husband has been gripping that I brought all this stuff that I'm not using so......... The one thing I'm glad about is that I have a lot of moisturizer with me and I will use it all on this trip. Then we walk over to the sitting area by the river and just watch and enjoy the sunset. Very nice.
