Day lost track

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

After last night’s farewell party, we don’t have it in us to travel far today, so we take a ferry to Railay Beach, about 90 minutes away. Railay is a paradise that has, unfortunately, been over-run by pasty paradise-seekers. Gorgeous rocky and green cliffs frame a perfectly white beach on the west side of the island, which not coincidentally is also the tres expensive side – so we head to east search of something closer to the $15 a night hut we’ve just abandoned on Koh Lanta. Not to be found – so we spend a bit more for a solid bungalow sporting hot water and a TV, and the pool is nice too. The east-side beach, however, is dirty and smelly and really not so nice, which sends us back to the west-side beach for dinner. Rachel has pizza, which is actually quite good, and Johnny enjoys a spicy green curry. That’s about all Mrs. I can handle, so the mister tucks her in and goes exploring a bit on his own, discovering a hidden beach, some caves, and a resort so spendy they have 24 hour guards patrolling the grounds with flashlights in order to keep the riffraff out. Too bad, or Johnny would certainly have sampled their no doubt more expansive pool before heading back to a very sleepy wife.
