There were quite a view backpackers around, I met some nice guys and had a few beers at the bar every night, if I knew about this place sooner I would’ve been here sooner!

This wasn't the kind of place where I was likely to get cutlery, so I tucked in with my hand, like a local, much to the amusement of some onlooking Tuk Tuk drivers.
