right as im in koh samui now and the internet cafe is charging me a stupid rate per minute this is gonna be short and sweet and you are probably not gonna hear from me in a few days! anyw, yesterday was the lastday in samui for me. me and g went to this elephant sanctuary thin, had an elephant ride, saw things then me (being in my own world as usual) managed to nominate myself for something which turned out to be a thai massage by an elephant. mental note - PAY ATTENTION HANNAH! anyway, was pretty funny - ended up with eephant snot like stuff over me though! then we went and canoed down this river and went to visit a waterfall. the thing bout thailand is that they dont really care baout insurance here so the guide decided to lead us down this waterfall. was pretty fun until g slipperd over. but that was still funnyand she couldnt stop laughing - even now! anyway, after the waterfall and one of our guides sang a wonderful rendition of james blunts ';youre beautiful' (i say guide - he introduced himself then slept the rest of the day in the jeep!) anyway, we got back and went to a bar and had a few beers with a few canadian guys we met, an aussie and another brit. by this time it was past 8 and we were m,eant to be in fishermans village at 9 because our neighbour laura was hosting the open mike night. was a bit of a rush but all good. was a pretty sweet night. spent until about 1am there then went to some random place for some AMAZING food! Was SO good! tried getting a cab back at like 3am but none of the taxi drivers were having it so we all decided to walk home. thank god a sangwethenaw (i dont kno how tio spell it!) was driving past and piocked us up! anyway, g has joined me for the trip to koh tau. we got the catasmaran thing today (and g knocked herself out getting onto the ferry!) and we have got here and it is so SO pretty here.can understand what everyone was talking about now. its very backpackery here though. lots of 18 year olds really tanned and slim going and getting tatoos and partying all the time. which is all good dsont get me wrong but was so different from our time in mae nam on samui. anyway, we are staying in a really nice beach hut. and thanks to excessive prices im gonna have to sign off the net now! however, mum -u may get a parcel in the post soon with loads of cheap pirate dvds! wahey!) and dad - you would have LOVED the open mike night last night! absolutely loved it - u would be very jealous! hope everyone is well and thanks to everyone who has been leaving me messages!
