Had a great couple of days. Yesterday I went to the Sunday night market in Thalang Road which had a great atmosphere with weird and wonderful food and street entertainment. When I got back to Ming Shou I met up with an English girl called Steph and we chatted for an hour before I hit the sack.
Today I met Steph again and we decided to get the bus to the beach for the day. Whilst on the bus we met up with another girl called Ellen and the three of us spent the afternoon on Karon beach. We got the bus back and arrived back at Phuket town at 5pm, showered and changed then went for a real cheap local Thai meal. After this the three of us went off to have a Thai massage which I had no clue as to what to expect. I was manipulated in all sorts if ways that I could never dream of and got a fit of giggles when I started imagining we were all having a game of Twister. That set all of us off and the three of us and the Thai masseurs were all laughing. Steph's masseur was a Ladyboy - the first one I've seen (that I am aware of anyway!)
It was about £6 for an hour massage so I think I will return every day - bargain!!
I have to leave on Saturday to start my voluntary job in Phang Nga.
After our massages we went to a little coffee shop where I had pancakes and choco sprinkled bananas - very nice!!
We have arranged to go to Kata beach tomorrow and the three of us are meeting up at 11.30am
Right, going to read some more of A street Cat named Bob and then get some sleep. Goodnight all x
