Last Message from Thailand

We've just finished an amazing day snorkling (we saw a turtle!) and will be heading out tomorrow morning to make our way back to Korea for our return flight on Sunday. For the curious, this involves a 'taxi' (basically, a seat in the back of a pickup) over dirt roads for 30 minutes to Sansala Pier, a 4 hour ferry ride into Surathani, an hour flight to Bangkok, and a 5 hour flight to Incheon Internation Airport.

But let's not talk about that. How amazing is it that on the sleepy northeast corner of a relatively small Thai island there is not only internet access, but cheap and plentiful internet access? In another decade, I wonder just how remote you'll have to get to not have it be possible to check your email.
