On The Road To Kho Phangan (Hannah & Jimmy Arrive Too)

Today would be another big day on this trip for me.
Today I would see my wonderful & beautiful Hannah!
Today I would again meet up with Jimmy, one of the coolest fiances Ruby has ever had!
Before all of that however, I still had to come to terms with waking up in a bed that was not mine. Thankfully I was wearing my clothes. To my right, Bryan was in a bed, which also was not his. Im beginning to think we may have done uncharacteristically well for ourselves until I looked to my left.....
What do you do at a time like this??? As it turns out, you go back to sleep and try to hope that its all but a dream. Wishful thinking. For anyone who might be wondering how I came to be in a bed that also contained Jeff, it was because Ruby also slept in that bed and Bennie & his Hair had locked me & Bryan out of our room while he took both beds for himself.
As we were leaving to head out for breakfast, Ruby reappeared with Hannah & Jimmy. In all honesty we did not do a whole lot today. We mostly just hung out. It has been a long time since most of us have seen Hannah so that was cool. It had been about a week or two since myself & Bryan last saw James so we'll not leave out and saw that it was emotional too.
While strolling around with the girls, Bryan spotted a bar that had buckets for 150 baht....needless to say, we got excited and the girls dutifully agreed to indulge our excitement for a few minutes as we shared bucket after bucket with each other. All too soon they decided to get their bags ready because we were going to the train station later.
When they returned, they found the two of us wearing new hats yet we never left our seats.
With everyone back we decided to grab a quick bite to eat. With myself and Bryan refusing to leave our constant supply of bickets behind, we got food there. Mel had gone on and on about the mac & cheese there saying how bad it was. I've never had mac & cheese. Neither has Bryan. It was actually quite nice.
After our not so disgusting food, we made our way to the train station. Due to the size of our group we got 3 taxis. It was funny to see how all 3 took different routes, took different lengths of time and charged considerably different amounts. Luckily, althought mine took the least amount of time, ours was the cheapest!!
Some of the others already had a few bottles of whiskey & vodka so myself & Bryan were smart and bought mixers and a few packets of crisps.
When we boarded the train, we soon realised those with the alcohol were on one end of the train and we were on the other. Lucky for us, there was a Beer Man on the train, even if he cheated us out of money and a beer but he did supply us with beer to accompany his happy singha beer song (sung in the tune of jingle bells).
