We are heading out to the kings palace today, we barter with taxi driver (our daily ritual now) and off we go.
The palace is Amazing! you have to dress proper like no shorts allowed, the king is like a god here and very highly respected and his palace portraits that, every building (and there are lots) are covered in Gold.
I spot a tour guide with a group and we slip in for the free ride and information, we get to hear about the monkeys and dragons and how us Ferang (foreigners) pick off and steal the gold to sell or keep as momento's (must be the french)
I decide to take photo's of funny people and try to sneak in their photo's so I can point and laugh a bit to cheer myself up (it works)
It's back to the hotel for a swim (ok I admit it we didn't even know the hotel had a pool until last nights party - oh we are such seasoned travellers)
A local walk in the evening and a midnight meal at a roadside cafe (the best meal yet) and our day is done.
Oh we also decided today where we are heading off to next 'Prachuap Khirir Khan' - now all we need to do is work out how we are going to get there and where to stay - We leave tomorrow
