I've been spending the weekend in a bungalow at Pak Nam Bay, on the quieter side of Koh Phi Phi. There was no internet, not much of anything really. Electricity doesn't even come on until 6pm. The grass roofed bungalow was steps from the beach where we hung around in hammocks chatting about life and watching crabs scurry around the shore. In the middle of the night, the power goes out again and there's nothing but pitch blackness and the sound of crashing waves.
Aside from the lack of hot water (and lack of chocolate for Steph), the only downside were the mosquitoes who've had a passionate love affair with my feet. On Sunday afternoon I hopped a longfin, boat, and night bus back to Bangkok where I'll be taking care of some visas, some teeth, and meet up with a friend of mine. I've finally torn myself apart from my British travel buddies. But I'm sure they're having a wonderful time lazing about the islands.
P.S.- For those of you in the 'nose', everything's healing nicely so far.
