Wow this morning I woke up with the mother of all hangovers...looked over to see Si who just turned to me and said "mate i'm so happy to be alive" and then we just laughed. We checked out the extent of Si's injuries amd although he took a bit of a beating in the jungle it was mainly cuts and scrapes with quite a bad grase on the knee. Pictures will explain all if he lets me post em! Today has been just a nothing day and fell asleep and woke up at 5pm. I have never slept like that before but a combintaion of the flight catching up with me and the non stop partying since we reached Thailand resulted in my body just wanting to chill out I think. To be honest it wasn't all bad because once we got out of the room we got told everyone had been stranded at the hotel due to the bad rain. I recon it is better weather in the UK right now...am i ever gonna get a summer this year! :(
When we arrived at The Cocohut Resort we had to pay a compulsory 750 baht for the hotels Pre Full Moon Party get together, I just thought that yeah they need to make money but some people just take the piss! Not only do they hike the prices at full moon party time but then you can't stay if you don't pay the party fee...they know you are gonna pay it because you need accommodation...very clever! The party takes place tonight and includes some entertainment, a buffet and all you can drink beteen 7-9pm. When we heard it was all you can drink me and Si where a bit wounded as we were both feeling so rough from the night before but knew we wanted to get our monies worth as we both felt they had gone to far with the party tax.
We went back to the room (well si hobbled back) and we decided screw it lets go for it. We got ready to go and hit the party hard. I don't think i would ever be able to look the boys at home in the face again if i had passed up a free bar amd free food! Decided not to go on the changs and went for steady vodka and coke. When we met up with Joe and the boys they were talking to another group of lads. I looked at them and thought I know these guys from somewhere...yep, more Torquay boys. I couldn't believe it, how many Torquay people were invading this tiny island in Thailand. We all got a big table and drank pretty steady for the two hours. After the party was ending we all went into Haad Rin (the main town where the full moon party is taking place) and headed to the drop in bar. A bit of deja vu from the night before. The night ended fairly tamely although stayed out to see the sunrise which at the time seemed like an amazing idea but waking up the next day was gonna hurt! :)
