What a great day! We arrived very early in Phuket and were immediately met with our friend John Ziment who lives in Phuket for most of the year. We were also joined by Susan Hasson a friend of Johns whom we met on this voyage. We toured Wat Chalong first before heading up to see the big Buddha on the top of the mountain. We spent the rest of the day touring the beaches and markets with a special stop at the sea gypsy village…. We finished the day with a wonderful Thai lunch at Karon Beach. It was such a treat to see our friend John again…. Hope to see him again on another cruise in the near future…..
