Ok, back to Bangkok. Now, Thailand is famous for it's sex industry, Bangkok in particular. One of the tourist/backpacker stops is the infamous red light district. A couple I met at the elephant retreat had been the night before and told us all about the ping-pong show they went to see. So obviously when we arrived back in Bangkok myself and four others headed out to witness these extraordinary talents for ourselves.

As soon as we arrived in the area, we are hasseled non-stop by people trying to get us into their go-go bars to see a show. And these people simply will not take no for an answer. Even though I was standing with a friend, pretending she was my girlfriend, men were still coming up and asking me did I want a naked massage from sexy girls. After walking up and down the strip a few times, we found a good deal that didn't cost us a fortune just to walk in the building and where a beer didn't cost a tenner a bottle.

But of course, when you settle for less, thats exectly what you get. This place had a couple of anorexic ladyboys dancing on stage. When I say dancing I mean they were leaning against poles looking bored/miserable/stoned. There was one girl who did all the party tricks, and to be fair to her (and it WAS a her) she did put the effort in when dancing. Then it was onto the tricks.

Now, I'm sure we've all heard about the infamous ballon bursting antics, but it's actually something else to see in real life. Well, probably a little too real for the english girl that was sitting behind the ballon and got hit on the arm with a dart, but thats what happens if you're in the line of fire.

Next up it was smoking in an unusual way: and an almost certain way to get ovarian cancer. Although she didn't blow smoke rings which I was kinda disappointed about. In our wee group of 5 there was one other guy apart from me, and that was Anthony. After our talented friend proved that smoking was big and clever, she asked Anthony to light up about 20 candles on a giant birthday cake, which she then promptly blew out without using her mouth. Deciding that this was worthy of a big tip, she asked Anthony for some money. Anthony, being an old hat at this malarky, told her no, and thus ended up being the target for her anger for the rest of the night. After opening a bottle of soda water, she sprayed it all over him, and then wiped his face with a tissue that she just "cleaned" herself with. Poor Anthony took one for the team, and of course this didn't stop me pissing myself laughing at him.

A few more tricks involving lenght of rope, raw eggs and of course ping-pong balls, and it was time to go home. The drive back was even more exciting with the 5 of us crammed into a tuk-tuk, me on the floor with my legs hanging out the side, nearly loosing them to every motorbike and taxi that came sreaming past. All in all a good night. :)
