We took our first actual lesson on Wednesday and were really pleased with them, as with everything it is all in the planning but that is no easy thing believe me.
We went to see a band play on Friday night, it was Helens sisters, boyfriends, mothers brothers friend or some close relation like that, anyway turns out he lives in Phuket and once we had rang we were then invited down to a beach hotel in Rawai to watch his band play - while there we met some other farangs and did the mixing thing as well as that we bumped into Aili's teacher - everywhere you go the world just gets smaller eh?
Then on Saturday we met up with the lady Helen met in Tesco - it seems they run a studio so i spent the afternoon playing on his Drums, Bass and Guitar, it seems there is plenty of work out here for musicians and they know a number of people who are looking for others to gig with. I still am yet to buy a guitar but hopefully on Tuesday when the music shop opens that will be sorted out.
Sunday which is today we joined a local Gym/spa, it cost us £20 each for the month but we get half price spa treatments so will make that back in one treatment. (a means to an end) every other day we finish school at 12:30 so will get some time to use that and chill out while everyone else is at school or working.
We had two rain showers which consists of it spitting for 2 minutes while the Thai's run about screaming and diving for shelter while we look to the sky and smile - it last less than a minute and even then the sun does not stop shining, but watching the panic is quite amusing.
