We left the relative luxury of Faasai, with unlimited wifi access and dragged our gear onward. I like packing lightly but this trip has all the technology requirements, so I have heavier bags than usual. We met a couple on the way and Gayel asked where they were staying. We followed them in their pre-arranged van pick up to a hotel at Kai Bae, arriving at sunset. Our hotel is lovely and luxurious, still with an island feel about it. I am at the Internet cafe (it costs 1Thai Baht per minute: about 3 AUS dollars an hour).
The food in Thailand is incredible. Hot and spiced, but wonderful, and lots of fresh seafood because we are on the Bay of Thailand.
Tonight we have a “Cabaret Show” at our waterfront hotel restaurant. Of course this is a show of “Ladymen” – queens – so who knows what to expect. I think I will do something frivolous today and splurge on getting my toenails painted. Hah!
