A Little Taste of Thailand
Thailand has a smell. Wet, tropical and heavy with undertones of fish sauce, King coconut and burned brush. I’d forgotten it, but it assaults me the moment I step off the plane. I’m well and truly here. Finally.
It’s not my first trip to Thailand, but it’s the first time I’ve managed to give up the fantastic pad thais, coconut shakes and som tam, and choose to fast and detox instead. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and now that I’m 6 days in, it’s safe to say I’m very happy with my choice.
I spent my first 2 days in Bangkok visiting friends, getting clothes tailored for Agri and filling up on all my favourite Thai dishes.
I couldn’t resist one last latte at Bangkok airport before boarding the plane for Koh Samui and my 14 days of zero food and zero coffee.
I’ve got daily massages, ozone and herbal steam sessions, morning yoga and a full day of juices, vegetable broth, bentonite clay and psyllium shakes, herbal tinctures, and colonics, all designed to detox me thoroughly from inside out. The schedule is seriously intense.
I’ve still got 8 days to go, and anything could happen, but so far, I’m loving this experience. I feel a beautiful emptiness, freedom from hunger and the tyranny of food, and a light expansiveness growing within me day by day.
I’ll have a full post on the cleanse and what it’s all about when I get back to Seoul.
