So the only thing really noteworthy about the trip from Koh Phangan to Krabi was the movie that they played on the bus. For starters they turned the volume up full blast so that it was impossible to do anything but watch the movie. The movie they played was "Deep Impact" which is an an asteroid-threatens-to-destroy-planet kind of movie, like "Armaeddon" with Bruce Willis but not as good (which isn't saying much). (note: if you really want to watch the movie stop reading right now because I am about to reveal the ending), The really weird part came during the last fifteen minutes of the film, an asteroid ends up hitting the atlantic ocean and the entire east coast is destroyed by a giant tsunami, then the president (Morgan Freeman) addresses the nation and says something to the effect of "Now it is time to rebuild our country, our home,", which in most cases would be pretty cheesy, but it was actually pretty eery seeing as how at that exact time the bus was entering Krabi, which is on the West coast of Thailand, an area that sustained a lot of damage and loss of life when the Tsunami struck fifteen months ago. It was one of those moments where I was just like "wow, that's pretty intense."

I'm going to add more to this entry later, gotta run now though...

took u long enuf to get a tan
Took you about 3 weeks to have any color. So I finally broke down and decided to read your blog...not bad my friend. Yeah its a good thing I didnt go down there with you, I'd prob get so many std's my wanka would fall off before the trip was over. on the flip side, you better have some romantic ideas ready for you and your lovely lady. I'm sure you do, you've always been the more romantic/creative of the two of us. Hope your eating a blanaced diet over there, the last thing you need is some health issue cuz your not eating well. We'll have to share stories when u get back over a couple brews. btw wish me a happy belated bday in your next blog.

Take care in knowing we miss you over here in the civilized world.

Best
Alex
