Its the day before I fly out of Krabi and back to Bankok. Then the next day on to London and Ireland.
Had a cool last few days here. I was chatting to the massage girls on the beach, when this lady boy (sorry to say it, but it was rather obviously a guy in girls clothes and makeup) sits down next to us and starts chatting. i decide to be friendly and not notice and ask one of the real ladies who their pretty girl friend is. Later i was walkin past him/her and say "hey man". he gave me a nasty look and walked off. and i was gonna explain that i say that to everyone, the same way i say "hey dude". anyway, didnt see him/her again.
Havent been doing as much climbing as I'd have liked. I ended up climbing up to a hidden lagoon, on a very slimey steep path, using this old knotted rope. Sometimes it was vertical or overhanging. But worth it in the end. None of the pictures i took do it just justice. a totally quiet circular lagoon, about 20m wide and surrounded by steeply overhanding cliffs. i tried bringin my camera out into the middle of the water to capture it, but ended up kicking a coral stone and cutting my foot, and couldnt climb to well these last few days.
Also, i visited a shrine dedicated to the cock (see the picture), went to a buddah relic on top of a 1300 staircase in the baking thai heat. and was invited out by thai familiy for dinner.
Some of the shells looked kinda nasty and they told me i couldnt eat them or i'd get the shits. they didnt know the english word for that, but the mime said it all. also there were these deep fried crunchy sticks, about half as long as my forarm. i was crunching my third one (they were yummy), when i realised they were whole fish, and i was crunching my way through skull brains and sinal column. oh and there was the desert. a giant horseshoe crab, stuffed with its own eggs. uch, the smell was undescribable, and the taste woulda been bearable if i hadnt seen where they came from.
tonight theres a grill party at my hostel, cause i'm leaving. should be fun.
i didnt get that 7a i wanted, but theres always next year for that
see most of ya's when i get back to dublin
