We started off the day by bookingn our tickets out of town for the next day, yet another bus, this time to Luang Prabang a world hertidge site of a city. We then got breakfast while once again watching friends!!! Before heading to our meeting point with the four other girls. When we got there we found Flic and Jazz had decided not to go tubing again because they didn't feel great....I was personally thinking what the hell did they think I felt the day before, but went along with it. When Hannah and Sophie got there, we found out they weren't going to risk tubing again, because they had a flight to catch the next morning, and if they didn't get their bus today, the next one was 3 hours before they had to be at the airport, or something tight like that!!!!
After a little think both Jade and I agreed that we could deal with not tubing and just bum around all day (and I do mean bum this time!!!) After a little shop in which Jade and I picked up some great Thai trousers, personally I think mine take the biscuit, because of the fantastic patterns going on on them!!! but whos judging!! We also said bye to Hannah and Sophie again, who we will hopefully bump in to again in Cambodia.
With very little to fill the day with, the other girls, Jade and I decided to get a Laos massage, everyone had a bit of an ache on, my arms were caining from the padderling on the tubes!! so we found a shop and went ink. Jade and I decioded to get a traditional full body Laos massage with oil....sounds good ey??? Well Jade nicely got a women again, and she really enjoyed, and I'll start with the explanation of mine by saying I did enjoy it...in parts!!!
I got the token gay guy to do mine (not by choice) and already I was feeling slightly apprehensive, but I thought, don't be so homophobic, so I went along with it!!
First point is, unless male Laos massages are much more...umm lets say intimate, than females then I was me malaested. My groin massages turn in to a nice way for the guy to (I apologize for any rudeness in this explanation but it is unavoidable) touch my sack...too many times for it to be accident. Then although a massage of the buttocks is normal, with shorts on, my buttocks were oiled up, underneath my shorts!!!!
My gouch, I'm informed is the name of the most horrible part, the area of skin between the bum ad the front sex organs, was prodded (by fingers) twice!!!! my bum hole was touched (outside the shorts this time. Then my ear lobes and inner ears were carressed. I think I have to say how I felt at the end, but violated is a decent word for it. I of course didn't know how much was happening to Jade, and didn't know how myuch was normal...so I was basically touched up by a Laos man.....not my proudest moment it must be said!!!
Anyway the rest of the day, we spent on computers and walking around, buyuing a couple of T-shirts each, and just having a look at parts of the town we hadn't seen before. We had dinner with the other two girls, who both had roast dinners....It has to be said jthese girls weren't the most interesting in the world, and conversations weren't exactly free flowing!!! Anyway after dinner Jade went back to hotel to pack and I went back on the computer before packing myself.
Last thing to say, which I forgot to mention on the first day in Vang Vieng we found a shop selling ski coats.....unbelievably random, I considered buying one, as they were (I think rip offs of) a very good expensives make back in Europe Spyder, but the one I wanted they didn't ahve in my size, this would have been a ski coat for 45 pounds, usually coster closer to 400 pounds.
