After a weekend of elephant rides, temple visits and lots of markets, the Hops ‘N Spice crew settled onto the tiny island of Ko Samui in the Gulf of Thailand at the Santiburi Resort. Taking a break from the constant moving and driving of the mainland, the crew got to unwind a bit. Jo took up residence in this hammock during the day between cooking classes and searching for unique fruits.
Jo getting her fix at the Rambutan and Durian Farm. One is hairy, the other is spiky and both are delicious. Picked and peeled right in front of the crew.
The crew also got to check out a cooking class and learned how to make Seafood Hormok and Khua Kling. They had to work a little bit, couldn’t have them relaxing too hard.
They also took a fruit carving class. Jo’s is on the left, in the middle is the instructors, Chris’ is on the right and the thing that looks like a discarded honeydew rind is an “elephant” carved by Tom, our marketing guy, Hops ‘N Spice tour manager and unskilled knifesman.
