I took a day off work today and am currently sitting in a crazy shop, its like a supermarket with a computer at the front, I was like "errmmmm can i use?" didnt understand the reply though, lets hope I'm not being illegal!
I am more sunburnt than I think I have ever been before, its 100% not cool! I went to the beach this morn for the first time and must have got a bit overexcited and not put sun cream in certain places... i have massive patches haha! but my arms are the worst, and I definitaly put cream on them. I swear Its like 2nd degree burns! the skin is all bumps and small blisters are appearing everywhere ahhh and they hurt like a b****! oh well, ill get over it.
its been a pretty interesting few days actually. yesterday all the normal stuff happened with the elephants etc... then me theresa and martha got lifts on the back of the mahoots motorbikes and went to the river and we got some beer and went swimming and had a rave. there was like a whole family in the g baths, they were washing their hair and stuff with soap, it was crazy! so then we went back to the centre, and had some dinner and I went to bed quite early becuase I was tired.
This morning I woke up at 8am (woooh liein!) and got a taxi to cha-am which was quite exciting becuase it's kinda more like real thailand as where I am staying its just a rerally quiet village. I went to a few shops and bought some thai food. I had these crisps but they werent, they were dried broad beans, I was like "yes haricot vert!" then I sat on teh beach eatingfor a while before deciding to strip off and go in the sea, which was pretty warm. then the wierdest thing probably in my life... maybe not? happened. this big group of thai people, probably about 15 years old? came over and one of them was like pointing at a camera and then to me, and I assumed they wanted me to take a photo of the group of them so I was like "yes" and tryed to take the camera, then suddenly one by one they sat down next to me and the girl took a photo of them with me. Literally about 5 thai kids took it in turns to have a photo taken with me... with ME! it was so strange, they were like posing and stuff! when they went away again I layed back down like "that was wierd" when they came back and started trying to make me write my name in the sand, then they all started chanting the letters of my name. I swear to god, thai people are off their rockers!
then I realised I was getting burnt... quite a lot so decided to have a thai massage and it was amazing. 90 minute long massage cosdt like a fiver, and it was well good, i feel good right now! except maybe a little hungry and tired and bad sunburn... ahhh well!
so yeah, nearly my birthday, i think i will take the day off again and go to hua-hin and buy loads of beer.
better go now, speak soon
