Mersey is laid back fishing town, also serving as a departure point for several islands off the coast
Once I found a hostel, I spend an hour or so walking around and met up with a few other tourists doing the same thing I was. One was a student from Germany and the other an Iranian on an indefinite holiday. Not long ago, he converted to Christianity and as a result, was informed be will be executed upon return. He said he was not planning a return trip anytime soon.
I later took a nice stroll down the beach and along the waterway and must say the locals seem to be quite friendly. They all smile and say hello and the scores of motorcyclists all want to give you a 'high five'.
I have been covering quite a few Kms the past few days, so I think i am going to take it easy tonight. perhaps stop down to one of the bars down by the beach and enjoy a cool Tiger beer.
I have the morning to do some more exploring, then I am off to Cherating at noon.
