... place and had these nice pork and duck and fish noodle dishes, followed by a fresh coconut. I'd imagined this would be literally a coconut with its lid chopped off and a straw stuck in it, and it looked like it was, but I think it was actually just hollowed out and filled with water because it tasted rank. Anyway the whole lot came to about 4 quid so we left happy and headed back to catch the boat back to the hotel. It was so nice just being on the ...
Day 3 After Khao San road last night with the boys mol and I were very tired so we decided to spend most of the day by the pool.

This took us to the lucky Buddha, tourist office, a tailoring shop (the Tuk Tuk drivers are sponsored by the tailoring shops) and then dropped us off at The Grand Palace where the Emerald Buddha is kept.
