Pam mentioned that she worked at a salon so I went there, after breakfast on the beach, to get a hair cut. It was located at the end of Soi 10 (Alley 10), which was only two streets over. Everything you need is within walking distance. The haircut was only 100 baht and her friend actually did my cut. She owned the salon and left right afterward to meet her 60 year old farang boyfriend for lunch, shopping, or something. She was in her mid twenties at best.
Again, I chilled with Wat on the beach and drank more beers. Wat shared some fried fish with me he caught
The day was getting late so I went back to the hotel to shower and change because I was meeting Pam at 6 when she got off. She met me at my hotel and we decided to walk on the board walk. For fun, I picked up an couple of baskets this old lady was carrying and, man, it had to weigh at least 150 pounds. She was so little, I don't know how she walked all over town with it. I paid her 20 baht because I felt bad for her.
The rest of the night consisted of hanging with the locals. I went to a off the beat restaurant with Pam and Aut on the back of motorcycle taxis
After dinner, Pam said she needed to buy a suitcase for the trip. Picked one up then we went to her place to pack. It was awful. It was one room with a fan. It had dirty walls and smelled horrible. Her roommate was drunk passed out on the shared bed. Pam seemed to have motherly instincts and was wiping off her friend's face and neck. At first, the hotel desk was going to charge me to go up because this place was commonly used by prostitutes. No wonder it was only 200 US a month.
Could take it anymore so I left so I could get up early.
