I had to wake up early and get my things ready to catch a minibus to Pattaya at 11am. Yesterday, my travel, agent, Emily, arranged everything for me.  She wasn't there, but Kon was.  She is the other agent.  I had to pick up my airline and train tickets from them later so I decided to get some chicken fried rice for breakfast.  I had it last night and it was so good I decided to get it again.  It only cost me 1 and it included a bottled water.

I went back and grabbed my tickets and chatted up Kon for a bit until my bus arrived.  Emily then appeared.  I don't know if I was drunk or not yesterday, but I think I just realized, Emily, was a dude.  I'm glad I didn't ask her/him to do something last night.  I kept staring at her/him Adam's apple even though it was quite small.  Maybe she/he had gotten it shaven down medically, dunno.

I took some pictures of my guesthouse before I left.  It was the best place in the area.  Clean and cheap.  It was 600 baht a night which is about 18 dollars US.  The front of the place was nice and secluded from the heavily traveled street.  It had a small Kio fish pond surrounded my small tables and chair for you to sit outside and dine at.  There were Indian/Middle Eastern people trying to sell you a custom tailored suit for 40 US.  I kept telling them it's too hot for a suit.

 The bus came and I was joined by a Korean mother and daughter for the trip.  The daughter was a student in Vietnam and mother was just visiting.  The trip took about 3 hours, longer than I expected.  We got off at the Pattaya bus station and took a little truck with benches in the back.  They called them taxies here.  When we arrived at the beach, we went our separate ways.  It took me a bit to find a room to rent, but I found one for 800 baht at the Orn Place.  It was a little off the main street, but at this point, I was tired of lugging my pack around.  They only had a two bed room and that is why it was more expensive.

 I changed, went to the beach, and had a few beers.  I spilled my first one, damn it.  After a few hours, I left and had some McDonalds.  I was craving some American food at this point.  There were so many gross old men with young pretty Thai girls.  It was really disgusting and I don’t get bothered by much.  I decided to call it a night and start my real time in Pattaya tomorrow.  I’m going to try to find the floating market in the morning.
