Learning My Blogging Skills
Ladies and Gentlemen I’m just learning by leaps and bounds, today’s accomplishment is embedding Google Plus posts into my blog. Last time it was FaceBook posts. Because WordPress is just too complicated for my simple brain, I’m trying other things.
More people see my FaceBook posts, but adding Google Plus posts raises my SEO on Google Searches. So you can expect to see more of both kinds right here on Photojimsf.com.
These pictures are typical of my daily routine in Jomtien Beach, Thailand. I’m such a late riser it’s usually past lunchtime by the time I find a good cheap breakfast. Today was a quick bowl of thin rice noodle soup with pork balls, fish cake, and ground chicken, a pinch of the four Thai condiments: sugar, chili powder, vinegar, and fish sauce. A few greens added. Just 40 baht ($1.33) at a roadside stand.
Next I might grab a massage at the Thai Blind Massage Institute. A one hour Thai massage is 180 baht, I tip the reception 20, and the masseur 100. About $9 total! Tea or coffee is given afterwards out on the front porch, where you can relax and chat with the caged parakeet.
No Cutie Pies Today
It’s late afternoon by this time so I might head to the beach for a sunset joy walk and photo adventure. I try to see how many cute guys I can convince to be photographed, but today was pretty slow on that count. The weather was just perfect, about 80 degrees f and lightly breezy.
That’s The Spirit!
The highlight of this joywalk was a cluster of spirit houses near the far northern end of the beach. Spirit houses are similar in concept to the Mexican Deo de los Muertos altars which honor the dead. In Thailand they’re also meant to give them a place to hang out, eat, drink, relax, and pray. Placed outside and away from people, they hopefully distract the spirits from haunting those that are still living.
Krap, Khun Krap
Thanks for tuning in, I hope you come back again and again.
