Art, Creativity, Photography, Travel, Writing

Here are some of the photos I took while we were on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand, earlier this year:

we went on a fishing trip and our friend caught this barracuda. It was just over 1 metre long and weighed over 7 kg.

we cut the fish into steaks, wrapped each steak in a piece of banana leaf with garlic, chilli, and a slice of lime, and then grilled them. The fish fed 20 people!
