Where I stayed
She therefore would not get up in the morning but when she did we had a 6 Ringget breako of sausage, eggs and something that we didn't realise we had missed... "Baked Beans". We decided to set off and try and do our own tour as the tour companies were far too much. The tour leader (me) led us to the bus station but we missed the bus by about 3 minutes (there is only a bus every hour and a half as there is only one bus so it has to do the whole journey then come back)
Erica edit: I just saw squirty cream and started to hyperventilate.
We then walked to a butterfly museum before heading off to a tea plantation, the biggest draw here, by this time we had walked about 16km but the views were stunning, we had a quick walk around the factory and skipped tea on the balcony as it was too expensive. We walked the 2km back to the main road but Erica was really struggling by this stage (her hip had started to hurt somehow). I was trying to hitch a lift on buses and shared transport but to no avail. Eventually we managed to hitchhike back home (a first on this trip) but it was free which is great. We got back to the hostel and were so tired we just sat and drank some cheap beers.
We gave a quick revisit to the Indian stall from last night, it is just unbeatable in terms of the taste, volume and value criteria
Tomorrow we leave for the Perhention Islands off the North East coast of Malaysia for a bit of a chill out because that is all we have wanted to do since we left Myanmar. Still we hear rumours of no internet and no leccy. We are then trying to get the 'jungle railway' but just cant seem to get tickets to Taman Nagara the oldest rainforest in the world and famous for not being able to hike without getting covered in leeches (bring it on). From there we are heading to Singapore to see Cheryl and Siong before going to Bali and Sumatra to end SE Asia.
