I’ve found a guest house on Koh Lanta which has a big TV and a whole suitcase of DVDs. As long as you buy something to eat or drink (which is entirely reasonable) you can sit and watch as many movies as you like. I spent the day there today and I’m moving there tomorrow! Movies on the beach, with Thai food brought to your lap in front of the TV, what better place could there be to chill out for the next few days?
It is a little odd being on my own after having been in the thick of an international news story, surrounded by people, with the phone ringing constantly. It’s been one extreme to the other. It is nice to have a bit of peace, but a little less peace would also be nice. I’ll see what Koh Lanta’s night life has to offer tonight, I fell asleep at 7 last night.
I’m still in the market for a pocket digital camera so I can bring you, my lovely readers, more regular photos, I know pictures are easier than words. The Canon SD200 (new window) looks like a winner if anyone out there is feeling particularly generous! (Any journalists I’ve helped out over the last week?? :))
