Standing outside the ferry port it hadn't occurred to us how we were going to get back to town. I still can't quite bring myself to say yes to the dozens of people descending on you whenever to get off the ferry/bustrain ect. Talking to one of the more persistent taxi drivers he arranged for us to hop on to the backpackers buses doing the hotel run. We agreed 50baht each and squeezed into the front of the converted lorry or death trap depending on how you look at it. All the back had been striped out to add a couple of benches, the dashboard and doors had been removed (doors just get in the way right?) luckily there we handles to cling to for dear life, and the gear stick was held on by a piece of old string. However we got back to town in one piece. Previously we had stayed away from the backpacker area but decided to brave it this time. As per lonely planets instructions we checked into AMansion guesthouse, with every intention for leaving Krabi the next day for Bangkok. In the mean time we to finally got to the local food market which was tasty and cheap as it should be, wasn't sure about the entrails soup kev insisted on but when in rome i guess, and after a few changs we once again retired to the Syfy channel. Getting up bright and early we set off the find a bus to take us to Bangkok to meet up with Laura and Gavin. After the 5th 'no seats, all booked' we gave up, booked ourselves on tomorrows bus and went to a cafe to sulk. One large advantage to the backpacker area is the cafes, loads of them and with a good portion of them selling English and American breakfasts. Bacon, eggs and 2 cups of twinnings tea later we were feeling much more positive. So we ran some errands ate some more and got and early night for our long trip tomorrow.
