Pattaya is...

We are in Thailand, on the beach in Pattaya, Hat Jomtien. Today we experienced; Beach vendors, plying their trade one by one past our beach umbrella. They were selling: mangoes watermelon pineapple grapefruit spring rolls fried shrimp steamed crab fried crab steamed clams paperweights sarongs sunglasses tattoos foot massages tattoos again blankets buddha figurines ice cream I SAID NO TATTOOS THANK YOU! cigarettes sandals tee shirts shorts do I ever have to leave my beach chair, I think I could live here on beach vendor wares alone! cashews with chicken or pork or beef gold watches oh ALL RIGHT I'll just take the tattoo that says "Do Not Disturb," you can put it right here on my forehead... There... Now maybe I can get some reading done... (coral necklaces jet skis swim wear hats various random pieces of furniture) ...
