the weather let up for us a little today.  it only rained on our scooter day for about 10 minutes on the way home.  we decided to spend another day here at around 9:30 am when the weather looked a little more optimistic.  i've decided travelling here during their "low season/monsoon season" isn't such a bad thing...i guess if your main purpose is to scuba and snorkel then perhaps its a bad a idea but really, for the travelling that we've been doing there have only been a couple days when the weather hampered our decisions.  plus, you get less crowds, cheaper prices (i think lol) and some cloud cover to cut down on the heat and possibly even the sunburnage.
the scooters here are about 5 bucks per day lik eeverwhere else.  i took a dirt road down towards a beach that was insane.  i almost ate it.....thrice.   i should have taken a picture of some of the rut riddled steep hills i traversed with my small little 4 speed motorbike.  the prize was a gorgeous little beach that i think few ppl travel to because of the roads.  the only traffic i saw on the 2km road were quad tours of 3 or 4 led by a guide.  shhhh don't tell the guesthouse owners i took their little motorbike on that death trail. lol
we leave for bangkok tomorrow by bus, which will take approx. 14 hours i think.  its a night bus that leaves here around 5pm and gets into bangkok around 7am.  we are only planning on only staying there one night and then going straight to cambodia for, what we have planned will be a 4 day trip to go see the angkor temples.  might not have internet for a while so until then.... : )
