Tzachi, the Dutch boy in our dorm, had tried to take cash out but his card wasn't working so I agreed to lend him some money if he transferred it to me, but it isn't as easy transferring from a Dutch account to an English one! It took quite a while but I managed to find out the codes I needed.
We decided to leave the hostel today so that we could stay in a beach hut. It was a very sweaty walk, but we found an alright one for 150 baht each.
In the evening I went to get an oil massage. I felt a bit overexposed given that the curtain shielding me from the view from the main road wasn't pulled across fully, and occasionally the odd customer would walk in. It started off on my back and feeling really nice, but then she started leaning on it so that it was difficult to breathe. She repeated doing a combination of nice and not so nice things on my legs, feet, arms, stomach, neck and shoulders, and then decided to mess up my hair a bit. She leant me on my back on her knees and twisted me round, cracking my spine; at least I got to try a more traditional Thai massage!
I needed to get some face wash, but all of them in the pharmacy were whitening, so it will undo all my hard work on the beach today!
My laptop cable has a 3-pin plug, but Scott had said if you pull of the third one you can use it in the 2 pin sockets, so I asked the Russians in the neighbouring hut to cut it off for me. One of them lived in the jungle on the island and so had really hard-core knives so that he could live off what he found in there- I best not get on the wrong side of him! He had found a python skin and has it in his house apparently.
