We had originally only meant to stay on Ko Lanta for a couple of nights and ended up staying a week. The island is beautiful and relaxing. There are still a couple of stories to tell, but for now the pictures will have to do. By the way, sunsets on Lanta are simply spectacular. As the sun goes down, the sky turns from blue to pink to red. We noticed that most people left the beach as soon as the sun dipped below the horizon, but they were missing the best part. As the sun sinks lower behind the earth, the clouds burst into flame until finally they cool down, turning a deep purple, and then the sun's light is completely extinguished and night arrives.
