... not too chili but if you don't realy do chili then you will struggle. Cocktails after 1pm are 99 bht so had a mai thai and a singa for the husband, satisfied, full and a little tipsy for myself. This heat and 4 shots of alcohol have gone straight to my head.
The afternoon was filled of some swimming in the pool, ready my book and at 6pm we headed out the front to the Y Bar for a sunset drink before hitting the markets. Another Mai Thai but it was slightly different ...

They're huge on the tipping in there, quite pushy in fact and despite free entry (yeah right) your first drink is 900 baht that's about $27 for my Sprite and a $3 tip on top. Beers were the same price. Second drinks drop to 200 baht - bargain, still twice the price of anywhere else. Today Mica and I went and did some final shopping, Pete and Matty snoozed and then we packed up. We ...
