05:30 PM Laura and Danny Arrive, we walk to our sweet Air BnB on the other side of the airport
06:30 PM Do Questionable Beach Walk across time share condos to Karakter Bar where we order mojitos and Beef Carpaccio, and are serenaded by a Frank Sinatra-esque Female Vocalist. We're looking for a way into the Simpson Bay restaurant area, deciding between a cab ride or walking, and take Marlin, the server's advice after he assures us "it's just a few blocks up."
08:30 PM 45 minutes later, walking through neighborhood ridden with street dogs, per Marlin the Karakter server’s advice, and eventually make it to Avantika, a wonderful Thai restaurant near Simpson Bay.
09:00 PM Eat Duck glass noodles, Tom Kha with Squid, Mussels, and Fish, Laura orders the Panang Curry with Fried Tofu. Mark is our services name. Danny orders espresso.
10:00 PM Attempt to go to the Market (and fail), buy two bottles of red wine, then catch on the craziest cab drive home where our cab driver blames us for him not listening to use all three saying, “Turn right there. That’s our street right there.”
11:00 PM Apparently Danny has a literal fit of shits and giggles, I have no recollection of this even though I’m sleeping right outside the bathroom door.
