Greetings From Satun, Thailand...

We reached Satun at 11.00am. After taking an hour's journey by bus from Kangar, we were greeted with the host - Satun's Education officials - at the border in Wang Kelian with 3 executive vans, ferrying us to our hotel, or rather our chalet in Satun.
Actually, we were supposed to stay in a chalet in Pak Bara, a nice place by the seaside, about 15km from Satun town, but due to flood waters, we were housed nearby the Tesco building in town. Satun Province was hit by floods the last few days. We are lucky the flood waters receded yesterday....
I don't know the name of this Chalet because it is written in Thai. We had lunch at noon and it was awesome... I ate twice as much as I usually do.... We had the local favourite dish - the kengsom Siakap fish, boiled shrimps, fried chicken with curry leaves and mixed vegetables... It was really a nice lunch..
