Every other city we go…..

O.K. so I’ve been around to a few places since the last time I wrote, so I thought I’d tell you about them. In the briefest most not boring way possible (sorry if I already lost you to boredom). I went to the full moon party on Ko Phangnan it was kinda weird, thousands of whitey’s on a beach with lots of drugs and alcohal floating around there were at least 10 different bars with their own dj’s so the music was mixing and I had a few too many to drink so I ended up sleeping in a hidden corner of the beach at around 2 AM and waking up at around 5 AM, then i got some food and went back to the beach and met up with some Mexican kids I’d met in singapore, we started drinking again and watched the sun come up, it was nice. then a day or two later i left and went to the other side of the peninsula and went to a different island called Ko Chang, it had no electricity except for at night from sunset until about 10 PM, i read a book and ate alot there wasn’t much else to do but swing in a hammock and chill. it was cool there were hardly anybody on the island but there were still enough to meet some people, the only problem with meeting people is sometimes they want to trade you shit so they remember or something so some dude pawned off a crappy shirt on me for my Miller shirt, i didn’t realize i got fucked on that deal until it was too late. any way i left there this morning and now i’m somewhere else, i forget the name so i’m not going to write it. i’ll be heading towards bangkok in the next three or four days. cause it’s like that, and that’s the way it is

The question is where is francoise?

Well ummmm….I made it. I went to the island of ko phi phi don three days ago and yesterday i went to the smaller island of ko phi phi le, why is that so interesting to anybody, it’s not. except that maybe because that’s where The Beach was filmed. which was cool for me, i supose, i got to go to the beach and go cliff jumping (about 45 feet, 15 meters) there’s some really nice lagoon kinds of things and beaches of course. it’s a pretty small island and nobody actually lives on it, the shitty part about it is everyone else and there mom’s want to see the island, for scuba and snorkelling and sitting on sand and all that shit also the tsunami completely fucked up phi phi don so there was lots of constuction going on and lots of tourists getting drunk and resorts and weird stuff like that, so basically there were lots of other people and boats and noise and stuff, so it wasn’t quite what i was hoping for but anyway i already have my beach in vanuatu i don’t need another. so yeah, that was cool, it meant a lot to me for some reason. now i’m in phuket which is supposed to be known for their prostitutes or something but it’s night now and i ain’t seen one yet, but i’m not in the area where they hang. yeah, so now i’ll be here for another day and on to the island of ko phang ngan (I think) for the full moon party next tuesday. I certainly do live a hard life.

Oh, and another thing…..

I made it to thailand today. It was exciting in the way bus rides generally are, I tried to get from malaysia to thailand but it only went about 95% of the way there which is pretty good for a $3.50 four hour trip. but that last 5% would have been nice too. Instead i hitchicked for my first time since new zealand last year, I got a truck driver named Ziah, nice guy. he took me to the border and I walked across then some dude on a scooter picked me up for no reason and took me to the bus station, then i sat on a bus for another hour and now i’m here. Hat Yai, Thailand, where the beer is cheap and the hookers are cheaper, maybe not i’m just assuming, I haven’t had a beer yet. So i’ll be in thailand for at least the next 30 days until my visa expires, when i’ll leave and come back, or something to that affect. ok that’s all for now………you get no more

In case you were asking yourself, where is that silly bastard

I’m here in sunny Medan, located on the dirty isle of Sumatra in Indonesia. It’s been alright here actually, at first it was caotic but i’ve gotten the hang of people here so i am relaxed, or something like it. It’s ok in this city but it is the dirtiest place i’ve ever seen in my life and i’ve been to all your houses so you know what i’m talking about. last night i hung out with a whole group of homeless street punks, it was lots of fun, we passed around bottles of vodka with energy drink powder mixed in (or at least that’s what they told me) then we played guitar and sang for people while one of the girls walked around shaking a hat for money, we cleaned up making at least $1.80, but that’s cool cause a bottle of vodka is only $1.10. anyway, i’ll be here until thursday when i head into malaysia again and head north into thailand. ok that’s all i got for you for now, just remember I get around. round and round, round we go…..

Who’s down with OPP?

I’m here in singapoor, it’s lots of fun. I really like indian people and their food. I’m not quite in asia yet being here on the little island south of malaysia but i’m heading up north in a day or two to somewhere around kuala lumpor or sumatra or some other really foreign sounding place. is it cool if i name drop cities? ummmm…..I played a game today with some dudes from bangladesh, it was a mix of pool and air hockey, you slide a puck around knocking other little pucks into holes, i lost. i’m a big ol’ loser. ok I can’t think of anything else to write.
