With no sleep since Dharamasala two days before, I found myself on the airport bus to Khao Sahn road. Though I was very happy to be heading away from India, I was not looking forward to Khao Sahn, and was planning to leave for an island as quickly as possible. But first some sleep. The best laid plans of mice and men...
Hooray for Dutch people. I managed to meet one on the bus to Khao Sahn road, and after finding a shoebox to stay in, met up with him for a beer. At 10 in the morning. All day I planned to go back to my room, but somehow being in a place with real bars and cheap alcohol was overpowering.
The next morning found me all the way across the city in a random penthouse, still sleep-deprived and surrounded by people I didn't know. I distinctly remember thinking "hey, if this is the 1st night, the rest of this trip's going to be awesome!". I headed back to Khao Sahn, remembering that the Dutchie was meeting me at midday. With only enough time to change clothes I was back on it.
At some point I got back to my room and slept. When I woke up I realised that I was sober. An unhappy situation, but before I rectified it I admitted to myself that my bank account and kidneys probably couldn't take much more of this place, so I quickly booked a bus to Kho Phangan before I left for my breakfast of beer.
Thus I escaped Khao Sahn's clutches. Tis an evil, evil place. But fun.
