Bike to neighbouring Pak Chong to say a proper welcome back to German John. He appears to be on a similar schedule to me now. Needs to go to Laos near the end of January to refresh his visa and is returning to Europe about 23rd March within a day or two of us.
After lunch Jai goes back to the party. I want to see the monk making ceremony but not all the other tosh. I have been here for about a dozen new monks now but have never seen the head shaving etc bit.
I go out to the farm to water the new trees which are all looking fine then return to water the garden which isnt looking so good.
The monk making parade around the village passes us about 16:30 and I make the effort to come out ad watch the drunks dance past.
I have been saving myself to go drinking at the party tonight but over dinner Jai decides she is too tired to go and by 18:30 is in bed. I sit our front for a bit then watch a little of Brazil v Libya 5-a-side footer.
