|Our room, its the one in the middle :)|
Ok, might be a little disjointed, just had a nightmare (can't recall) and its 2.30am.

Breakfast - my goodness this place puts on a good breakfast. Whatever you can imagine. Kiddie cereals, sausages, full English, proper Asian style - Marko is going Asian and having fried rice. Nice juices, fruit including the tiniest bananas in history - will take the camera to breakfast tomorrow to get a teeny banana photo. We ate outside, quite close to the road. Ben got very excited about the motorbikes, there are MILLIONS of motorbikes here, most with helmetless riders, and often with two or three people. So he spent a few minutes saying "oooh motorbike, oooh van, ooooh motorbike, motorbike oooh van" you get the picture?
Then we went to the beach across the road. Everyone enjoyed that, its super flat out far and has one breaking wave in close. According to all the paperwork, its quite a dangerous beach, rips, strong currents... yes that was evident, but we stayed close in shore. Ryan stuck with Jamie and Ben was with me. Ben was gorgeous (again) he got the giggles with every wave, especially if we had to jump.

How did we travel? TUK TUK, these things are adorable. Its a mini Dihatsu ute (according to Mark) that has been pimped with a back cover and seats that run mostly lengthways, open back door and no seatbelts. Ben was unconscious asleep and missed it. Ryan loved it, he really likes the blue tuktuks and thankfully we got a red one. The road from Karon to Patong is really hilly and the little car makes it with only a tiny struggle. Fascinating road rules over here!
|And yes you should be embarrassed boy, all this wonderful food and you won't even taste it. Burger King chips for him|
|Ben awake his time, this one was very cutely pimped.|
|Exhausted, hot Benny returning from our adventure, he's carrying his own water bottle|
