• Koji calls me, “Mummo.”
  • If you are planning on taking such a trip, you’d better be in good shape.  There is more walking than you can imagine, and going to the islands in particular and climbing in and out of boats, riding a roller-coaster ride through desert sand dunes, and climbing on and off a camel require physical strength and stamina.  Coping with such extreme heat and humidity also requires endurance.  I noticed that I was the oldest tourist in Koh Phi Phi. I am starting to realize that I am headed toward the other end of life, (How did this happen?) particularly with so many young honeymooners smooching and hugging everywhere.  It all goes by so fast…  KOJI: Even though my Mom was on the older end, she is still in great shape and was physically able to do all the activities we had scheduled. She outpaced many of the tourists who were much younger than she is!
  • JANE:  We ended up skipping the Koh Phi Phi Explore, scheduled for Oct. 5th, and decided to go on a hiking adventure on our own.  See “Adventure Hike” page.
  • I missed my connection from JFK to Logan on the way home.  So…I took the Air Train and A Train to Penn Station and the Amtrack train to Rte. 128, the stop just before Boston.  Roy and Chico picked me up at Rte. 128, and we got home at 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9…five+ hours later than planned.
