Sorry I had to leave off in the middle last time. We
wre staying in a hostel that loads of people
reccomended to us but it was the biggest pile of
overated ar*e we ve ever had the misfortune to
encounter. We had to walk thru someone elses room to
get to our cell, the walls were made of cardbord and
didn t reach the ceiling - Bangkok stylee - wrong
wrong wrong! It was inhabited by hardcore
shoestringers who look like they subsist on 250
calories a day and insist on a shower once a week
whether they need it or not. Those days are over for
us, even Dean who agreed with the price decided that
enoughs enough. Last time I emailed, when they told me
the electricity was gonna go off I didn t realise that
they meant for the night and that therefore the fan
wouldn t work in our holding pen of a room, it is HOT
here 40 - 42 degrees C. So after 9pm there is no
electricity or running water. We ended up going out at
10pm to look for another hotel with such luxuries as
lighting and 4 walls. We found a place a few kms away
with such upper class amenities and air con to boot!
We negotiated a discount since we\re staying a week
and moved in the next morning, bidding a not so fond
farewell to the dreadlocks and the sleazy staff at the
old place. For some reason it has an amazing write up
in the lonely planet and now the backpackers flood in
so they ve lost the urge to make any effort, if we don
t take their bed, some other mug will.
