Sunday 20th January 1985

Meet Dean and Yvonne at Chusri, seems they fought all round Burma, but liked it all the same. Travelled on a different budget to me. Learn how to finish off my knotted cotton wrist strap I had been weaving in idle moments.

In the evening walk a good distance north beyond the night market and meet Cathy, Lloyd and Kevin who I last met on Koh Samui, they travelled a lot with Dean in Sri Lanka last year. Also meet French girl Pascal who spent three months wandering around China. Useful chat. Ian the Aussie has just smuggled some gold from Hong Kong and some hash from Nepal. Yesterday they caught an Australian at Bangkok airport with 1½ lbs heroin strapped around his tum. Consensus his he will be shot.
