Koh Tao, Thailand
Thunder storms today so read books and spent time at Koppee (our local Starbucks clone) playing Skibo and laughing like children at a description of how AA Gill had to give a stool sample. The trick it seems is to wear a shower cap and clingfilm the sink. Maybe it sounds funnier here as we’re both feeling a little afflicted with Tropicana’s Revenge. Sufficient to say that we’ll be back again tonight looking for some serious Gai Pad Gang action or similar. Stopped for a lethal Long Island Iced Tea at our local watering hole – ‘Rasta Tattoo Bar’. If you haven’t seen a Thai Rasta wearing Buddhist medallions dreadlocks and a Rasta hat you really should. The accent is pretty full on as well. One of the local boys was trying to be a fire juggler with mixed success as his flaming batons would either go out or he’d drop them but the effect combined with a pint of assorted white spirits was magical.
