Last nights hostel was erm interesting...it was 4th one lucky coz the first ones we tried were all full or bout 40 pounds a night so we settled with this one,,,urgh it was like a prison room, no window and no sink just a loo and a bed with covers i doubt had been washed since the last nights western man and thai prostitute had visited...nice! my room was directly above a crazy bar so no sleep was to be had so thought i may as wlel join the party if i wasnt gonna sleep thru it! lol. it kinda all settled down early hrs of morn so headed for some kip. This morn (sat) headed round the khoa san road to find a better and cheaper hostel that actually has a sink and loo roll. found one eventually so moved my stuff over and then explored the khoa san street...done too much shopping and bought a nice dress for tonight. everythign is dirt cheap so if neone has ne requests! hehe. lotsa fake things but cool nonetheless for a pound and when ur travelling u cant be too picky! haha. got in some noodles off the street seller and then grabbed a tuk tuk for a hour ride round some palaces, buddhas everywhere and then the usual tailors so he cud get his tukt tuk gasoline free! lol. we obliged politely. lol. just got back after an hour breathing in the heavy smog and fumes! grabbed an internet cafe and i think us girls are heading out for drinks soon after this. they have straigteners so im lovin that! haha. hoping tonite i can actually straigten my hair for first time in 7weeks! how vain am i?! lol. gonna get to bangkok airport tomo eve after most probs a hungover morning lol and pick up my baby sister loretta! hehe, cant wait to see u lolly. dont cry too much saying goodbye to the orangutans! hehe..catch up soon..let me know all ur news everyone...miss you mellyxxxxx
