Woke up around half 7, in a tent on long beach on koh rong Island. We had moved during the night as Katrina had started throwing up and I thought if she needed me it would be best if I was in the tent too. It was very uncomfortable without a mat or anything to cushion between us and the ground. First things first, I went for a dip in the sea, it was absolutely gorgeous, it was the perfect temperature and so chilled as there were not that many people staying on the beach, and even less awake at that time. Once I had swum out far enough I went for a cheeky little skinny dip, which was rather amusing.
Back on the land there was some next hippy girl, rolling a joint at 8 in the morning, talking about how the sand was so white and special because it was actually broken up crystals and spurted a whole manor of other dim things. She then turned to us and asked if we could roll her zoot because she didn't know how to... I left as I shall not spend time in the company of someone so ridiculous. I went to pack away mine and Katrina's hammocks, which was by no means an easy task, but a hell of a lot easier than listening to wannabe hippy girls drivelling.
We were going to spend the day relaxing and tanning on longbeach, but as katrina felt so ill we decided to get the boat back with daisy and maddie, two girls we had spent our time at longbeach with (as well as Iona). This boat was not nearly as petrifying as someone who was of boat driving age took us. Then wannabe hippy girl got on our boat as well and started drivelling about writing a menu out for some Khmer people (Khmer is the correct term for Cambodian people, kind of like Gaelic I think, but not exactly the same.) 'because they didn't even know sprite, I mean oh my god, they just had to ask people to point' and on she went, hurting my brain with her nonsense.
Once back on dry land we made our way back to the hostel and checked in for another night, we left Katrina to rest and bumped in to Hayley! Iona, Hayley and me then spent the day at the beach, finally a chance to try get a tan, after just over 3 weeks in Asia, I am white as anything, and I don't like being pale.
That evening, the hostel ran out of water, so after a smelly and sandy couple of days, we had to stay like that. For hours. Until the changed the tank, but I suppose that is island life for you!
Once showered we went out for some dinner, I enjoyed the BBQ at cocos again, which did not disappoint.
After dinner we chatted and discussed the traumas that the Vietnamese and Khmer people have been through in the not so distant past, as we moved on to discussing feminism (so bloody grown up now you know), jamie and babs the Australian boys walked past and joined us. We drank a few beers, Iona and Katrina went home, we played ring of fire, had a few more beers and then the others went to smoke some weed and I went to bed, very tired.
When I returned to the hostel, tiger was waiting for me, so we had a little cuddle whilst I packed and then I sent him on his merry little way to catch a mouse or something.
