Today was what one might call a “damp squib,” but that wouldn’t be terribly accurate; it was an extremely sopping wet squib! We saw, and waded through, waterfalls, rivers and small lakes, and that was just in the market we visited. The monsoon rains chose today to teem down upon our boat trip out across Phang Nga Bay to see the islands, but in spite of getting drenched to the bone, I have many photos to share with you, but not tonight. It’s been a long day, so I’ll just show you that I did manage to find some ‘Rhythm‘ here in Phuket, after all.
Last night, there was a very talented duo performing in the club bar. They certainly had lots of rhythm, when they did the fantastic Eric Clapton number, “Layla.”
The show last night had a very special import, all the way from the ‘US of A’. You all believed that Elvis the King was dead, didn’t you? Well here he was, right before my eyes, asking us in a very rhythmic way, not to step on his “Blue Suede Shoes.”
Tonight we had a show performed by all the staff here. There are 21 different nationalities represented and they put on an impressive “Lion King” themed musical, which as you can imagine, had our hands-a-clapping and our feet-a-tapping.
Of course, one of the songs with the best known rhythm, and which had the whole place jumping, was,
“A wimoweh,a wimoweh, a wimoweh, a wimoweh,
A wimoweh,a wimoweh, a wimoweh, a wimoweh,
In the jungle the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight.”
(You’ll have me to thank, if you can’t get that song out of your head for a while.)
Hope you’re all having a great day. My bed is beckoning, so I’ll catch up with you all tomorrow.
