Arriving in Koh Samui (the bamboo airport) at about 7am, we had a few hours to wait before the ferry to Koh Phangan but we managed to get checked into Mac Bay about midday, they had saved my old bungalow for me, not realising that we wanted 2 beds, but changed it no problem. Unfortunately all the people I had hoped to see had gone to Krabi the in the morning before we arrived, maybe heard I was coming and decided to make a sharp exit.
We had a couple of days before the Black Moon Party so we spent one day mooching around Haad Rin and another doing a boat ride around the island, getting sunburnt.
The Black Moon party was similar to the Full and Half Moon parties I had been to, in that it went on until well into the morning and wa followed by an afterparty, which I failed to manage as usual. The couple in the bungalow next to us were a little older, and were quite offended when Mac asked if they would like accomodation somewhere else on the night of the party. Although we saw them going to bed about 1am, before most people had arrived, so I think they probably regretted staying. A good night was had by all and we spent most of the evening dancing and chatting to a couple fo Danish lads we had met, who were good fun. Got to bed shortly after 9am, with the music still blaring, but that didn't stop me sleeping.
A day of rest followed, and getting a messed up sleeping pattern, but the following day we sorted ourselves out and had another trip into Haad Rin, followed by dinner at Anahata, which is possibly the nicest restaurant I have ever been to. On Sundays they had an all you can eat buffet for 280 baht (about 4 pounds), which is expensive for Thailand. The food was fantastic and was stuffed our faces before heading home for an early night, as our ferry left for Koh Tao at 8:30 to do our diving course. More to follow unless I get eaten by a shark.
