... heat from the 7/11 with sprite and muffins for dessert. I was planning on an authentic Thai massage tonight but had been experiencing some loose bowel movements and didn't want to risk any embarrassing accidents. I don't have an unsettled stomach and not dehydrated so all fine (maybe some dodgy lettuce I ate - luck of the draw) but taking a few tablets to hopefully clear it up.

narrow, pot holed, dirt tracks - are improved though. I remember it
