Got up late after last nights party and wandered around in my lungi. Found a mirror and watched myself shave for the first time in a week. I’ve been away a week now - it seems like months. England seems so far away. It is.
Dean (Canada) gets a parcel full of toiletries. Emery (USA) shows his home video of Koh Samui, find half an hour of body surfing boring. Drink the evening away discussing the meaning of life, my mind is unusually expansive and authoritative, fuelled by coconut shakes liberally dosed with Mekong whiskey. This is the only palatable way to drink Mekong, and closely resembles pina colada. Call it samada.
