So here I am in beautiful Thailand, loving the weather (which is really good for my hair and skin), the people (the Thais are really nice and the ex-pats are amazing), and the food. I have to admit I've eaten 15 Cottages Pies (Shephard's Pie to some of of) at Morgan's and I'm making my way to 20 so I get a free one! But last night I ate at Kat e" and it was absolutely fantastic Thai food!
But, there is another side. I am so grateful to be able to ride a motor bike here because it gives me freedom and I love the wind blowing on me as I ride. But, nearly everyone here has had at least one accident. The fatalities in Thailand are extremely high, and in Koh Chang also high. There are some bits of treacherous roads due to the hills and winding 'S' curves and when it rains it's slippery. I've avoided those roads up to now. But I had my accident last week.
I have to admit the truth, I was on the side of the road and barely moving when it happened. I misjudged the side of the road and a rut that ran alongside it, and my bike turned over on it's side. Unfortunately, my leg was under it. But fortunately, I only got some superficial scratches.
Under normal circumstances, my leg would be almost healed now, but in this humid climate, infection is highly probable. I got an infection. So now I have to go to the clinic everyday and get it cleaned and dressed. Even though every one warned me of this and suggested this route, I waited until yesterday to start the treatment.
But this didn't stop me from getting back on this bike and riding. You know what they say.
