after spending a day all alone in bangkok, which of course included another search for a bloody pacsafe mesh, i enjoyed some ad hoc conversations & partying in khao san road. it is really the easiest place in the world to meet new people as everyone there is a traveller and it's just plain, stupid fun!

so anyway... another night in the gullivan's pub/bar/club which of course meant loads of bargirls, ladyboys, tourist guys and some lost tourist girls :-) was good fun to watch the scene and i got back after the once again too early 2am shutdown.

back at shambara i got ready to get to my room when i've met chona, a philippina/us girl living in japan and also staying in the guesthouse. we connected immediately. she only got a 2 week holiday to cover thailand & malaysia. the next day we had lunch in the great veggie thai restaurant mac kadee (or something like that, it's in every guidebook and fantastic! with a swiss-german speaking thai chef :-) ) and she missed her bus/ferry to ko samet.

no problem - we've spent another day in bangkok and decided to head together to ko samet the next day.
