Twisted in Phuket

Last Updated on

I’m in Phuket for another day (maybe two) because I twisted my ankle yesterday. Its really swollen, but I don’t think any serious damage was done. I can put pressure on it and even stand on one foot without pain. I’m limping much faster than I did even earlier this morning. I just can’t flex it, and that is mainly due to the swelling.

I have no desire to walk around with my backpack with the ankle like this, so I’m just going to sit in Phuket a bit longer. It’s raining here, so there isn’t really much to do.
I sat on a couch today with my foot up watching pirated DVDs and processing my photos from Malaysia.

The best part of twisting my ankle, was that I did it in front of a message parlor in Patong. It was raining and I stepped off a curb onto the street and didn’t see how deep it was because of the water. I went down and the dozen or so girls in front of the massage parlor all had a good laugh at my expense.

I did complete my Rescue Diver certification with out any further puking, so I got that going for me. If you happen to stop breathing underwater while diving with me, I got you covered. Again, thanks to the crew at Sea Bees Phuket Diving.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your ankle! That sounds terrible. Hopefully, the rain will stop so you can enjoy the scenery while you're stuck in Phuket. Have a good time while you're there!
