Where I stayed
New World Lodge
The market had it all and it required a lie down in the park to recover. The tuk-tuk journey back to the hotel woke us up (they go much faster than the Indian versions) and allowed us to take in more of the city
In the evening we hot Khao San Rd and did some more shopping an eating. All this walking around meant that we could no longer ignore the repeated calls for a massage. We started small and sat back for a foot massage. It was really good and the lady didn't complain once about my hideous toe nails!
Pols was ready for catching up on missed sleep which coincided nicely with England kicking off against Wales. By the time I had found a bar showing the match England were already 2-0 up. I then sat out the remaining 70 minutes without a goal. I couldn’t help but secretly hope that Wales might cause an upset, such is my hatred of John Terry and Co. Are they really the best our country can produce? Why are we not using David Beckham’s genes to clone a team of beautiful, humble and talented footballers rather than field a team of yobs led by an animal of a man who will never understand the beautiful game because he is too busy bonking his team mates wives?
Miles cycled: 0 but we did a boat, a sky train and a tuk-tuk
