OUCH!! Look out for climbing perch!

An amusing story from the Phuket Gazette. Poor kid ! Had the article been dated April 1st.....it would have made sense. Is there really such a fish ?

Hahaha. Awesome, Leigh. Gives new meaning to the term 'bottom-feeder.'

I've never heard such nonsense. The Minister of Public Health make it sound like this a common occurrence. Should consider myself lucky with all the swimming I've done in Thailand?

Yes, I know there is such a fish......it's just such a pain in the ass!
Will, I think you 'will' have been O.K. swimming......just be careful of where you sit down.......and whatever you do.....don't pee in the sea.
Talking of which.....we're off again in late July or early August. Any other fodorites heading for Phi Phi around that time ?

We missed you in Bangkok on April 24th. Did you show up at the Marriott and not find us? We were sitting very close to the doors to the Elephant Bar (which was closed) and we were watching the door for you for about an hour. Sorry we missed meeting up. Evelyne and Joclyn were very nice!
