Alarm goes off at 9 but it didn't wake me up until 9:30. Spend the next hour writing up my blog onto my iPad. We didn't really do much this morning. I had a shower quickly before we head out at about 11:30.
It's raining today so I have my waterproof and Rikka borrows my poncho as she forgot to pack her coat :) Walk down Soi Phra Pok Klao (Road) and see some temples, only from the outside as we had our shorts on! :) See some monks and a Monk school.
Walk back up the road to Parasol Inn Restaurant and order plain Pad Thai and pineapple smoothie for 200 baht. Connect to the wifi to update mum and Aaron :) See 2 English girls walk past in make up running down their face, hahaa!
Walk off our lunch in Buak Had Park which is really cute with little bridges over the pond. In our way back to main area we both get a coconut each for 40 baht.
Find a little café called Dada cafe to share a Mango sticky rice, yum! I also get pineapple, mint and honey smoothie :D we're sat next to a girl from Canada who had been working in Vietnam for 6 months, now she's going through Thailand for 3 weeks before going home. Food in café came to 120 baht, can't get over how cheap everything is!
Wander back to hostel to decide which Elephant day to do :) Chat to Aoi (the owner) who recommends Woody's, so we book it for tomorrow!!! 2400 baht each :) we also looked at the Thai cooking classes but still need to decide.
Head out for dinner and go to Morradoke and order water and sweet and sour vegetables with rice for 135 baht, really tastey!
Take a walk outside of the walls and it feels like you've gone forward in time with Boots, Starbucks and McDonald's right there. Keep walking in the direction of the night bazaar, just as we were about to head back we find it! So many stalls and people!
Buy a little purse for 10 baht (18p), top for 100 (thought the lady said 100 when I tried to haggle, turns out she said 140 bit I refused and got it for 100). Found the top somewhere else later for 100 so didn't feel so bad :)
Wander about some more and see lady boys in short shorts! Hahaaa! Your wouldn't see this in Hinton. We then find the really cool phone cases we spotted in Camden, Rikka bought 2, will come back here for Lauren's tomorrow :) then purchase my first thai trousers :) baggy trousers ...
Start walking back home and stop off at John's Place and sit out on the 3rd floor terrace :) have a whisky and coke :).
On our way back to hostel part a man in car with his windows down who said "Hi ladies, want some, want some? " I, stupidly, looked and saw his WILLY :O mistake!
Get back to Hostel at about 10:45pm. They've got no rooms for tomorrow so we go upstairs to pack and get ready for our early start with the ELEPHANTS! :)
