Went to Hua Hin with two other girls Monday and had a great day sunbathing, going to the hairdresser having a facial, eating a lovely meal and then going to the night market. The day started off really lovely weather wise but whilst we were in the market the heavens opened. it was hilarious all the Thai people ran for cover whilst the tourists walked happily through the rain.
Then came the thunder and lightning which was scary as it kept striking the advertising hoardings and blowing up the lights...about 20 feet away from where we were standing. I felt ;like I was on a film set.
Well Dad you are going to love this. Yesterday I got to help in quarantine with Monty the 5 metre long python!!! He had been stabbed and so I was holding him down whilst Mark the vet cleaned his wound. Then I got to clean and feed Iggy the Iguana getting in his cage.
It rained again last night but we really needed it, it's so humid. Started off a bit cloudy but brightened up a bit this afternoon and is baking now.
I did other cages today and I must admit to liking that job as I get to see all the unusual animals, even getting in with some. The binteram is so lovely (look it up on the internet to see what it's like). Then there are the otters (Olly and Olivia) and the mouse deer which is the cutest thing.
Gilbert is still being a toad to me but Milo and Madge love me which is so weird given that they hate everyone else. Milo even stopped throwing his water bucket and drank properly out of it today. So I am nominated to clean in between their cages.
Did special diets this afternoon which was nice as I looked after the same animals, getting in with them again. Haven't managed to see the leopard cat yet but saw the hog badger just now. I won't be bringing any back with me.
Anyway I'd better be getting back to my dinner...rice again deep joy. But I have organised a mexican evening for Saturday night which should be fun
Anyway will write again soon
