Koh Tao
It's been a while, which is funny because several of you had mentioned how I'd been updating this so regularly.  I'm on the most beautiful island called Ko Tao at the moment.  It really is heaven on earth.  As you can see by the photos, it's crystal clear azure seas, green jungle all over the island, beautiful light sand beaches, and hunnies as far as the eye can see.  Anyway, I've been slack in writing because of several factors:
  • Internet access here is 4 times the cost anywhere else in Thailand
  • I've been partying until 3 or 4 am every night
  • I've been getting up at 8am to do my PADI Open Water scuba diving course
In short, I'm exhausted.  I have met a bewildering array of really cool people though.  I think island life agrees with me.  In fact, it definitely agrees with me!

The Scuba course has been awesome.

  I got over my initial fear of the sea and I'm really loving it now.  So much so that I might even do the Advanced course in a few weeks!

The bars are good fun, but I keep losing stuff every time I go out.  I go out, get drunk, and forget my stuff behind.  So far, I've lost a hat, and a jumper.  Oh, I also had stuff stolen from my backpack on the bus from Bangkok to Ko Tao.  I was pissed off about it, but I'm over it now.  Nothing major was nicked - just random weird stuff, like a roll of Duct Tape.  My travel towel.  A travel mirror.  Weirdos

There's a guy at one of the bars on the beach that does Fire Poi.  Quite breathtaking.  I'm going to put a video on here, so watch it.  It really is worth it.  You can't begin to get an idea of how fast he's doing it just from the photos.

I'm shattered.  I have to be up at 5am, ready to do my final day of scuba training tomorrow.  The time now is 22:30.  Argh!

Much love, will write again soon(er), and with more enthusiasm...
