|turned out in the morning this is where the swede sent us.|
I had an early night, and was suprised when we had some late arrivals, especially because I never heard the boat. I must have still been knocked out from the all nighter I pulled in Langkawi the evening before I got to Krabi. I also had a nightmare about being trapped in a subway with thousands of people, unable to escape. Imagine my relief when I woke to find myself miles from any type of crowd and that as a bonus the sky had cleared. I took a moment to go outside and look up at the stars in the virgin black canvas of the night, no matter where I go in the world, you always have the stars above me.
|The terrible view I woke up to :D|

That night the large Thai group had a bit of a party. We had been lazing about up in our penthouse so the party was in full swing when we came down.

Our road home the next day was even more interesting than the trip out. There wasn't a proper bus station so we waited near the police station hoping to figure out which bus we wanted to flag down to get to Thub Put so we could get a bus from there back to Krabi. A Thai man decided to come and look after us, he spoke very little English and we spoke no Thai, but we still managed to figure out a bit about each other. He said "Me, Protect." and gestured to the village when I asked his job. I figured this meant he was a police officer of some description, but with further gesturing and by showing me his card where he had a very fancy dress uniform. Looking at this I understood that he was some sort of boss to which he replied enthusiastically "Yes, yes - big boss man!" He then pulled his truck up so we could sit on the tail gate, and showed us the shotgun in his back seat (and shells he was carrying in his pocket). Definitely the boss!
