We had another mince around town and Erica bought some clothes. I asked Erica to kill me if I bought a "Tubing the Vang Vieng" muscle vest so one of the few items of clothing the Lady has bought on this trip had to be a tubing top. She also bought a dress or skirt or something that looks nice, total bill about £4. I found myself a rather large sword for about £4 but didn’t think I would get it on a plane although the woman selling it insisted it would be fine.
Erica had an afternoon sleep and I did a bit of blogging, then we went out to watch the tubers come in from a day on the razz. Well we only counted 10 people come back before cut off time and there must be about 150 – 200 on the river. A few people looked worse for where after the sun had gone down (about 8pm) but there must have been loads of people either still out there trying to get back, asleep in a bar or spaced out on psychedelic shrooms. I think most things have been found on blackpool beach but never a spaced out tuber, can someone have a look.
Again tubing is not quite what we expected there must be loads of ways of doing it from going at it like a 'head the ball', to going for a quiet mince down the deserted river at 8:30am. Loads of people write allover themselves how many days they have been tubing for I think we saw only a weak effort of about 20 days. We have heard of people spending their year out tubing when they are about 18. I don’t think I would have survived tubing when I was 18, but then again I would never have had pathetic middle age excuses for not going 2 days in a row such as a hangover and not being able to move my head. Oh yeah nearly forgot I also oddly have nail polish on my nails and bits of string tied around my arms today. Nothing like a good lash up is there.
