The sun was back when we woke up, so we decided to head down to the beach on Don Kohn again, Linnea had missed out on it while ill on my biurthday and it was the nicest place to spend a day around. So we rented bikes and headed off, alot earlier than we'd done last time we went. We stopped at a waterfall on the way, which turned out to be unspectacular.
When at the beach the sand was burning hot, and the water dirtier than it had been a few days earlier. Slightly dissapointed, but of course not showing it (both Jade and I, that is) we settled down. However Jade, being unable to find a toilet there, informed us that she was going to have to go back to the bungalows because it was now her chance to be ill, in a toilet neccesary way. Touch wood so far I seem to have been fine, Jade seems to think I may have a stomach of steal, which may explain my surprising weight!!
After a while the flow of the river picked up and some of the stagnate dirty water was washed away. More people turned up as well, including Younes and Matt who was trying to fish. Linnea and I did a few jumps from the high rocks, and watched as a dutch guys bottled out of diving off of even the smallest of rocks, after having said he would do it from the highest.
While cycling back (by the way the cycle is about 40 minutes), crossing the brigde from Don Kohn to Don Det we were stopped, thinging it was actual security of the bridge. When we'd crossed the bridge on my birthday we'd been charged. It turned out it was a crazy slovakian or Slovenian, I know it's not a good mistake to make but I just can't remember!!! Who imploored that we stay for 5 minutes at a bar for a drink with the crowd of people sat on the floor. It was once a again a big international mix, one Japanese guy, a german, three Americans, a Laotian, 2 spaniards.
They were passing round Lao Lao and everyone had Beer Laos, and it turned out to be very fun, more people were added, including the two dutch guys from the beach, one of them being the bottle job, a Swedish couple, a few Aussies, a New Zealander, along with others. The biggest thing to come frmo the afternoon was a suggestion was a very piussed American guy to go to Ban Lung in North East Cambodia, although being pissed, and probably because he was pissed (due to the sheer amount of repeats) his message got through to me. He just annoyed Linnea, but you have to get past that with Americans I thought!!!!!!
We left as everyone else did, leaving that very pissed American and two extremely intoxicated Spaniards to fend for themselves, I know the Spaniards are ok I've seen them since, not so for the American!!!
We had a quiet last night in Don Det, we had dinner, and sat in our hammocks. It was raining again and it looked beautiful, I'm told by Linnea, I don't remember that much!!!
Last thoughts of Don Det (I sound a little like Jerry Springer) Its a very nice place that you have to be willing to except it's downers such as the out house toilets, the lack of electricity for the majority of the day, and you'll really enjoy chilling out there. We met some really cool people there, and having writen to people of what I was doing on my birthday I thought, not many people can say they did anything like that on their 19th!!!!
