Giles: Well funny in a "you had to be there" kind of way i guess... still got a cracking black eye though, five days on. I was just chatting to someone in the waters when a volleyball came out of nowhere straight into my face, but the odd thing was I didn't even flinch - so drunk I didn't feel a thing. The guys on the beach looked terrified who were playing volleyball and the lass I was chatting to was very concerned, but I didn't even stop my sentence as it hit. Alcohol is good for pain. And my foot, well nothign funny to tell as I can't recall how it happened, but it's left me hobbling for a few days now but it's almost better. Just counting myself lucky I only came back without t-shirt and glasses - other peopel forgot to bring back bags with wallets and cameras, other peopel had cameras stolen or lost - everyone we've spoken to had at least one thing misplaced. Overall a great time though!
Nice place here, very relaxed during the day, fairly mental at night, guess a little taster of what Thailand's beaches will be like. Off to Bangkok Monday! The only annoying thing was the amount of kids who wouldn't leave us alone trying to sell stuff, asking why not everytime we said no, then arguing with each other and the tears rolled when we would buy a mango off one and not another. None of them understood the fact we didn't want 4 mangos, one from each of them.
Off for a relaxed last evening here now!
Much love, Gam and Siles xxx
