I moved to Thailand 4 months ago but never wrote a single word about it. Firstly, I never had a chance to sit down and write anything because I was too excited about exploring local life, traditions, bars and diners. Secondly, I wasn’t sure that a couple of weeks of living in a foreign country are enough to make legitimate conclusions. However, now I feel that I finally have something to say. Here are some pluses and minuses of living in Thailand, in my case in the city of Pattaya.
Today is my second day in this town and I went looking for a job. Eh. But the great thing is that my best friend is going to get a job too! Hopefully, we will find an employer who needs more than one worker. We were walking around the town: restaurants, cafes, asking if they are hiring. We even went to that amusement park my mom suggested: I don’t want to work there, not even a little bit. I may have to though… The thing is: I came here too late, most of the hotels and restaurants are all set, and all the positions are filled: waitresses, hostesses, receptionists. No one is needed.
But today wasn’t all bad: I had a great time catching up with my best friend, I met her boyfriend, he seems nice, I am really happy for them.
We also went to the beach; the wind from Atlantic was freezing, but we did bathe in the sun a little. I even got sunburn. No fair – how come the weather is so terrible but I still can get sun burn? But I’ve got to admit that there is nothing like the sight of the ocean, it’s beautiful. It changes its color like ten times a day, and every single time it’s different: grey, blue, grey-blue, light-blue, dark-blue, turquoise, or even white! And here is what I really enjoyed on the beach today: I closed my eyes, listened to the sound of the ocean waves and touched the warm sand, it was an amazing feeling. I can’t recall anything that even remotely reminds it, the time literally stops when you do it. Especially when there are not so many tourists on the beach.
