I had only one day left and wanted to see the monkeys in Prachuap Khiri Khan. So i got up early before it got to hot and walked down the beach and towards the temple mountain.

No clue who does eat something like that for breakfast but there is demand!

That is a really strange fountain on a really empty big square with lots of sleeping dogs.

Happy monkeys play in the water

The old guy is rather interested in his mango – why jump in the dirty water?

Now you think what is the guy doing here. When I walked down a car did stop and the driver throw a bag of food out of the window. The monkey did grab that and had breakfast. Guess it happens more than once in a blue moon.

Than I started to climb the stairs. They are full of monkey shit mixed with the rest of the food some people give to the monkeys. Not really nice to walk up and it started to get hot on top of that.

Quiet Days in Prachuap Khiri Khan

April 29, 2015 at 10:11

Prachuap Khiri Khan is a small quite beach town down south from Hua Hin. I did spend there about two weeks at the end of my winter trip 2014/2015. Did stay at Maggies Homestay and it comes with a garden and open air kitchen. There where a few nice people we had some beer, conversations and food together. Here is another set of pictures so you know how it was.

If you have a kitchen the whole food situation does change quite a bit. There is a nice market just a block away and a big market two times a week next to the train station. All that food is about 3 €. I had mushrooms almost every day and I never say “NO!” to green asparagus. Still had enough native olive oil to keep me going. Mind you – the good stuff from Greece and organic olive oil from Spain. Not the cheap stuff they sell you expensive in Asia.

What are you looking at?

The manager told me to clean my porch or else… Why like that??

There is a Pizza place that sells bread as well. Big big Baguette for only 40 Bath. Makes a really good sandwich with the green from the market

The local video store did show The Fast and the Furious 7 already – hmmm

Next door to the Homestay is a vegetarian restaurant. Great – went there every morning. Usually had some brown rice with 2 toppings – 30 Bath – 0,90 € and sometimes a soup after it – another 30 Bath

Hanna had the idea for a drinking Sunday – Yes we can

Next day she was kind of quite?

The guy from over the street. If you ever been to Thailand and saw the advertising for gated communities you might remember a picture like this one. They do very often look like that – A nice house with a car park under the same roof. A living dream. Btw – thanks for choosing the right car!

Today we did put Moritz to his final Rest

April 16, 2015 at 10:47

After more than 2 years Moritz found his final resting place today. Some of you might remember that he died in Pai. Than he traveled down to Bangkok – further towards Laos. Than Phonekham came over from Vientiane and they burned the body in a temple. Phonekham took him to Vientiane and there he waited in the temple. On this trip I went and got him back to Thailand. And today we put him in the sea.

Last beer, last cigarette…

I think that Moritz would have liked the idea that a beautiful girl is the last one that touches him. Thank you Laura for getting up early!
