today we moved to baron beach hotel after staying at sunshine for 3 nights. it’s much quieter here although still next to soi 8 but our room overlooks soi 9 so there’s no crazy bars and cheap sluts, just the central festival mall (read: vie’s heaven). i dropped vie off at the salon to perm her hair and i went downstairs and got us some fuji apples, a kilo of mangosteen and a huge yellow thai mango all for 160 baht (less than $5). oh yeah we’re on a 3 day fruit detox. watermelon and bananas at sunshine for breakfast. pineapples, apples and green grapes on the street for lunch. and the ones i just bought are for dinner.
