Spartain looking rooms with exposed pipes, richard Rogers style on the celing. I had a doujble room which could have been quite small for two but there was a second bed. The main bed was between tow walls so you had to climb in from the bottom. Low lighting which was a bit difficult to see at times. No bedside lamp but I guess they're not expecting guests to be reading at bed time. Showers, toilet and basins are communal and likewise a bit dark. Otherwise very comfortable with excellent staff. Handy to the busy sauna which takes up the bottom three floors. this has steam and hot rooms, a swim ming pool, bars, cafe and restaurant all extremely affordable. On the third flooy you can have an excellent massage - genuine and no funny business - if you wnat that, go to the steam room or cruise area.

... having a long weekend. It also means that you have a chance of the weekend to do your lesson plans if you do go out and sub. I'm worried that I will have to sub regularly though, partly because my lessons are quite wide ranging, I might be a go-to sub. Planning lessons seems like a lot of work and I'm not entirely sure how people manage to fit it all in around their already hectic days. I was determined to get through mine (all 16 lessons) but ...

Both Matt and I had previously been to Bangkok, but some years ago (separately) and were looking forward to seeing how it had changed. Khao San Road is, as any backpacker knows, infamous in Bangkok as the (depending on your view) mecca for travellers or over-touristy hellhole. In any case, we both had fond memories from previous visits but either the place had rapidly changed, we had changed or our memories had been clouded by one too many Singhas the first ...
... pomelo, and banana trees. Really neat! We had some fun posing in hats with the ox and driver and Robert had a turn holding the reins as our driver took photos for us.
We continued onwards to the national park and began our hike. We were greeted by lush tropical vegetation, the continuous low drone of insects and the call of wild gibbons. The pervasive humidity surrounded us as did all the interesting vegetation. During our short hike to the Heo Narok Waterfall ...
... of worked out where it was heading, managed to get on without falling over or in and then set off. This thing was brilliant - shot along the canals, the driver lowering or heightening the roof when we passed under bridges and blue tarpaulin around the sides to pull up and protect yourself from spray - all the while the two conductors clambered around the edge of the boat getting everyone's 9bht for tickets. We got off near Siam square to explore the indoor ...
... to get too developed as the Cambodians are demanding expensive visa fees for foreign business owners. We had a Pastis and an Angkor beer before dinner and settled in to our rustic beachfront treehouse. I'd love to say it was the best nights sleep I ever had but at one point we had a visitor which we still don't know if it was a monkey, rat or a cat and the noise from a nearby bar was playing music till around 4am. Charlie said to me at one point "Is this trance music" I replied "I ...
