samui, and particular chewang where i'm staying is very expensive (comparatively), so i'm in the cheapest place near the water, dingy little hut. it's a real holiday resort feel, and development is rife. i went for a stroll to find this school that i'll be studying in. i think it'll be good for me to be out about, so i'm walking. getting hotter, get a little lost, maybe an hours walking (there was definitely a pint of john smiths in there somewhere). i find the sign for the place, so i start walking into the jungle (ish) up steep inclines, unfortunatly there is no sign to my place, so i walk for maybe 40 mins to the top to some other place called the jungle club, you know you've been pushing yourself hard, when your trousers are drenched in sweat. that's imagery. anyway the guy at the top gives me a lift to the bottom, where the school is. unfortunately it's closed. i sulk, and get a TAXI back to town. then i hire a bike for a month.
the island is pretty and very over developed, and i've been taking it easy, having a swim, getting nervous about grammar. having a few drinks at night, fighting off the lady boys who hound me when i stumble home at 2am. they don't want anything, they just want to sleep next to me, how comforting. where's kate when i need her. yesterday i met the teacher when i drove up to the school again, and he set my mind at ease (only a little). so tomorrow back to school, i've brought my pens and paper! hmmmm. That's Mr. Mills or sir to you!
