So Following a long journey on the night train then bus and boat i arrived in Koh Samui, Meanam which is in the north of the island and mostly germans stay here... ah well best get up early to get the sunloungers. So Harrys is a lovely looking wooden bungalow setting not to far from the beach and quite small, not to many people here just a few family's and a few older couples, so i was quite tired from the train i just head to bed for a few hours then up for dinner, now the foods not great but very fresh the only off putting was a small man who i had seen gardening that day, now though he had a guitar in hand suposedley singing for the meals entertainment ha well it was more than painful decided to head to bed early only a few more days and donna & shaun, Jacks & Jo will be here in time for christmas.
Wow how excited am i the others come tomorrow and i seriously can't wait, the weather had been cloudy with rain so still casper.... decided to head out to the main road and hit a few bars, all of them seem to be go go bars (where the ferange pick up women) so sod it i head to one called Mays! get chatting to a guy who now lives here and some of the girls who work there, it seems the bar let the girls (Work) there and when a guy who wants well a little bit more has to pay for them to leave, then after that i have no idea rates etc but it seems that once the take them shopping and look after them food etc you can keep the girl for however long you like!! still not comfortable with it but i suppose its just how it is, and most of the girls come down to work from the north where they would have been working on farms or rice fields so this earns them more and they can send it home. well 3 Chang beers later (this stuff is really strong) i pop on my torch for the short walk back.
Yeah so excited its christmas day, others are here now so we settle down by the pool for breakfast brunch and presents, after that we head to the beach still feels strange not being at home today but i am loving it! it rained again still no sign of a tan line :-(
We head to Chaweng for our full monty Xmas dinner.... wow how good was it just like home turkey with all the trimmings, then head down to a few bars for some buckets. This stuff is strong 1 half bottle of vodka then 2 redbull a few more and i'm slightly drunk... well ok i'm mashed he he he don't remember much until the next morning when donna fills me in, apparently i nearly restled a singer for the mic when she sung Valerie? No i didn't think so either that just don't sound like something i would do ha ha, ok then i get picture evidence from jacks so maybe they are right!!
we spend the next few days getting motorbikes then a car to explore, very funny especially shaun and donna heading to the waterfall they go up this rocky road bouncing all over the place, jacks had to stop from laughing to much!! next day Jacks & Jo set off for there new year elsewhere while we move down to chaweng, this is a bit like tenerife main strip lots if bars and plenty of alcohol spend the night on the beach which kinda seems like Ibiza bora bora in a way, brilliant night meet some really nice people, again the buckets come out and we get back about 3 am. next day the sun is out at last!! get up early for some serious lounging, Glenn is arriving today and then we are of to Koh Phangan for new years. catch a thai boxing fight, which don and i were going to miss to do the lady boy show however we tag along only to love it first up 2 small kids fight brings tears to my eyes... but by the main fight i thin i may have shouted kick him in the head!! (more points for this) very good night will defo go aging to see it. well tomorrow we catch the boat to the party island i can't wait!!
