The best shot that was obtained with my camera.
I got to dive on my birthday today.  A magnificent experience to say the least.  After our return from diving we had dinner at the house and I was presented with a cake in celebration of my birthday.  After dinner we went out on the town for more celebration and to also say goodbye to three of my fellow volunteers who would be leaving the following day.  We started out at a bar called the Elysium.  The Elysium is located on a third story rooftop of a small plaza and is very relaxing and chill location in Ao Nang.  The guys were hanging out here and after a few hours we decided to catch up with the gals who were down at Chang Bar a frequent stop on the local circuit for the house.

One interesting thing about Ao Nang is that there are two major entertainment complexes in the town, both with several different bars located in the same general area.  We hung out at a few of the other bars as the night wore on into the early morning.  Groups went their separate ways taking tuk-tuks back to the house.  Around 1:30 or so a group headed to Luna Bar (the late night hangout).  As we headed down the beach a few of us decided we had had enough and got a tuk-tuk home while the intrepid few headed out for the late late night partying.

I must be getting old as I was content to head home and enjoy some serious shut-eye and a long day off on the morrow.
