After a rather sad farewell to Chaing Mai and some ominous grumbles from my tummy we arrived back in Bangkok.

I didn't like our hostel from first impressions, but have warmed to it, there is nothing to complain about, it just isn't finlays cottage in Chaing Mai.

We decided as we are staying in this area again in a month to head back to the Kho San Road so that i could do some pampering.

A wise friend told me before i left to escape the bangkok heat by getting as many beauty treatments as possible. in england, i have maybe had 2 pedicures and a massage my entire life, so this pampering is new to me. last time i was here i got a great pedicure where i met a girl who had a wax at the same place and said she had never had a better wax in her whole life.

so off to get waxed for me, and she was right, the woman was great!

i then met adem who was drinking his first chaing beer of the night....

we got some pad thai from a street food stall that we both really liked and ate it in our usual spot, as we are creatures of habit.

After this i decided to get a  neck and back massage. here in thailand they have loads of places to get massages on the street, clothed massages that is, so i sat down and a woman with the strongest hands i have ever felt started mauling me, i had to ask her to be gentle with me, and i'm pretty sure she then bantered with the woman next to her about me being a soft westerner, once the pain had dissapated it was great, really comprehensive, i was poked prodded and cracked, felt great to work out some of my backs ever present kinks, after this half hour of massagery, i decided to pamper myself just that little bit more and get a leg and foot massage, total bliss, i almost forgot that i was sitting in the street with a towel wrapped around my front like a nappy to protect my modesty as she moved my legs about.

meanwhile adem was drinking more chaing beer....

i tried to convince him to come and get massaged with me, but i think he was pretty damn happy pottering about on his own.

after stumbling sleepily from my chair after over an hour of massages we haggled with a passing cab and returned to our hostel, where i am now writing this blog.

we met some people coming in to the hostel,and adem stacked it right in front of them all whilst making small talk. it was classic. i really wanted to laugh at him, but didn't want to make him feel bad...but im laughing pretty hard now at the memory of it.

he says the beer had nothing to do with it.....
