Guess who’s back?
Hi guys. Sorry we dropped off the radar for a bit, we’ve spent the last few days travelling around like madmen.
Since we last wrote, we took another two trains- one being the beautifully haunting Death Railway, and the second a seven-hour piece of crap which carried us from Ban Pong all the way down to the non-descript little town of Surat-Thani. We explored a deserted mall, broke a couple of minor Thai road rules, and yesterday left to Ko Samui, the infamous island in the Thai Gulf.
That night brought with it new wonders. Pole-dancing Ladyboys so attractive I wasn’t sure whether to feel heterosexual or not. A football fan having a meltdown over a Chelsea game. Another Thai singer attempting to sing Zombie without knowing the lyrics, all the while furiously humping his microphone stand. A Muay Thai tournament where everyone from old Thai men and teenage girls to boys barely out of their diapers got beat to shit for the entertainment of an all-white crowd.
And then this morning, to console us for not having slept a wink, we crawled out of bed only to find a pristine beach and crystal clear water waiting to comfort us.
But with so many events and so many places, unless I wrote you an entire essay, can’t convey it all. Thankfully we have pictures. Enjoy!
