The Girl from Ipanema
When I came upon this scene on the Haad Tien beach on Koh Phangan, I immediately thought of The Girl From Ipanema, even though we were hundreds of miles away from the crowded beaches of Rio, were in fact on a quiet beach owned by The Sanctuary, a fantastic spa resort in Thailand. The guy was gazing out longingly at the figure of a passing woman, and the words from the song immediately sprang to mind: When she walks, she's like a samba that swings so cool and sways so gentle That when she passes, each one she passes goes, ahh... But I watch her so sadly, how can I tell her I love her Yes I would give my heart gladly, But each day, when she walks to the sea She looks straight ahead, not at me. Tall and tan and young and lovely The girl from Ipanema goes walking And when she passes, each one she passes goes, ahh...
