Norman Woolrich (Emma's grandfather) is ninety this year, not today (Sunday) but he's having his party a month early because you can do that when your ninety. We moved house to hang out with the French at Shanti Shanti, and their food. We were keen not too miss the birthday party and the Internet at Phu Lae castaway corner just didn't cut it.

I stayed 3 nights at Non La Mer hostel, for about 350baht a night. It was a minutes walk from the beach and a tuk tuk (unfortunately the only option, other than a 50 minute walk) to ...
