We woke up late after a really good nights sleep in our beautiful hotel room, complete with bath, tv, telephone, balcony and even some towels shaped in to Elephants. We spent a while in bed just reading, watching the news and sitting in the bath relaxing etc. We dragged ourselves out of the air conditioned room at about lunch time and went to the Swiss Cottage for our second Pad Thai in Thailand. It didnt disappoint. We then went for a walk around town, Ao Nang is so charming, before coming back to sit around the pool and have a swim, sunbathe and a read. It was a world away from our experiences over the last couple of weeks. We sat out for the rest of the afternoon, it did rain so we did have stages inside, well it is the rainy season. We didn't eat much, just a couple of boiled eggs from the 7-11 and some instant noodles, but we did have quite a few Nescafe creamy 3 in 1's,which I have become a little addicted to. What a luxury to have a kettle!!!
We went back to the Swiss Cottage that evening for a few drinks and to use their free WIFI, we were able to publish all of our Myanmar blogs now that we were at a relatively safe distance. We got an email from Rorie and Emer 'Just checking in on the Stephensons' and found out that they are still in Thailand and literally just across the water on Phi Phi so we all suggested that we meet up one last time, for old times sake, and cross the border in to Malaysia together. The restaurant was packed mainly with English tourists eating fondue, yes, all very strange - we almost asked for a Shepherds Pie with gravy. Or was that Cottage Pie Mike? I can never quite remember.
