Checked into a very adorable small hostel in Phitsanulok, or should I say, "Phi-lok"...Nikki falls asleep immediately (we are very tired from the stress, in case you couldn't tell) and I trudge to the bathroom...but first! I am immediately cornered by a boy with huge dreads who wants to show me around the hostel. The German. "HA-LO! Don't I know you from Angkor? This place is NICE, yeah?!" And then enter American Girl. "Oh HEY! Where you from? CANADA? That's so fun!"
Woke up the next morning to find that Nikki was not feeling so hot (she tells me the details are not needed), so we decided to spend the day relaxing in what turns out is a really fun town. But not before The German tells me his plans! "Ha-lo! We leave today!" That night we went down to the river that runs through downtown, a really busy area with lots of vendors and a park full of nighttime Thai aerobics (?) and very cool floating restaurants. As luck would have it, an AWESOME cover band was playing that night (the only reason we knew it was cover was cause people sang along, as was all in Thai). Without proper introduction, we took it upon ourselves to name the band members based on hairdos. Angel was our favourite, with his wispy angel side bangs, and then there was Beatles, the lead singer who we think was trying to communicate with us by saying "OKAY!" and looking our way before songs. Also Jack Black, that's obvious, and then Indie Drummer, with his asymetrical cut. Let's not forget Obnoxious Groupie, who ruined our chance to take a picture by getting onstage to sing a song when we were about to leave. Lame.
