Since I was still hurting from excessive walking (and falling) on Thursday, I decided what I needed was a good foot massage, and such a place was steps away from Tri Gong. Down past the Prego Restaurant (good pizza) was a licensed Blind Massage place, and this is where I spent the last hour. The 1 hour foot massage was 150 Baht and well worth it too, since it not only was a foot massage, but also the full leg, neck and shoulders too. I will be back - perhaps on Sunday before my train. The location of the blind massage is Sribhum Road, Soi 1 in the NE inside corner of the Old City Moat. Perhaps, I'll try putting on shoes and see if I can walk a little more today? For breakfast today, I wandered out to the main street and had an open air plate of tropical fruits with yogurt, toast, pineapple jam and black coffee for 130 Baht. The Thai Iced Tea I had later at Black Canyon Coffee was sensational! Tomorrow I've booked an all day tour of the highlands (think waterfalls) - comes with lunch for 900THB.
