Singha In The Rain

After our first rock climbing bit we hit the beach and back to our room to shower and prepared to see the sunset once again.

We met some Austrian travelers and shared a beer with them while dusk settled in. Then we returned to the east side of the island and enjoyed a veggie burger and some fried rice for dinner. Yum. Tbhe food in Thailand agrees with our tummies much better than in Korea.

We decided to seek out some excitement after our dinner and headed to a nearby bar - Gecko. We met some Australians and different Austrian kids.

There was plenty of drinking of the local beer Singha and even a fire spinning spectacle. One S.African girl we met had been learning to spin and she too captivated the crowd with her many talents.

That was a late night. Keeping up with Australians when it comes to drinking can be quite a task and we stumbled home at some unknown, but late hour.

Needless to say, rock climbing was NOT part of the following day's agenda. We slept in until noon, but thankfully awoke hangover-free. Wish we could say the same for our Aussie buddy who spent most of the day in bed.

We took it easy the rest of the day, hitting the beach and catching up on some reading.

The beach is just as gorgeous as we remember, however its 85 degree temperature is not quite as refreshing as one might hope. But hey, only a fool complains in paradise.

Today we will rock climb agian, this time during the afternoon session.

We have signed up for a trip to Ko Phi Phi by speed boat where we will snorkel, see the monkeys and lounge on Maya beach, the beach where the movie "The Beach" was filmed.

Until then!
