The FULL MOON PARTY was definitely a ridiculous over-the-top massive event...
We'll spare you the details :-), but there were thousands of people partying until dawn, pounding club/techno/electronica music until the rain came pouring down the next morning, and more buckets than is really believable. The crowd was a bit too young for its own good, but perhaps that just means we're getting more mature or something equally frightening...

Before the party itself we spent several days enjoying the beach (though there was hardly any sun over all), and each night there was a pre-party of ever increasing intensity. Our bungalow was fantastic, set in a garden setting for only 600 Baht per night. We feel like we really lucked out, other than the mosquitoes that plagued us at night, since many of the places were either over-priced due to the party or just rather dumpy. And we got perhaps the best massage in all of SE Asia from our hotel, for the low low price of only $6!


The beach itself was nice, not too big but not too small, especially when it wasn't littered with last night's bucket straws and glowstick-bracelets. The waves were perfect for body-surfing throughout the afternoon, there was ample room to play frisbee, so it really felt like a slice of paradise despite the rampant over-development that is all around Haad Rin Beach. The island, Ko Pha Ngan, has numerous beaches, but we stuck with the one we were staying at since it met our needs just fine. Plus with the cloudy weather it didn't seem like a good use of time to travel around the island by over-priced truck-taxi... or perhaps we were just delightfully lazy?

Right now we're back in Bangkok, having endured the 19-hour journey of: taxi, boat, bus, bus to get back here... laying low today, hopefully we'll make it to see Fausto and get the money from selling our bikes back to him, but exhaustion is definitely at the forefront for today...

We fly out early Monday morning, so this might be our last post from SE Asia :-(. If so, it's been a fantastic ride (literally, much of the time), thank you so much for reading all about our cycling adventure, and there will be more news posted soon!

Peace, and much love
Anderson & Liz

Hey guys, sorry that we're not the quickest about answering blog comments - you can also email us at themuths AT gmail DOT com

we are blanking on the name of the hotel right now, we'll try and think of it some more though, but it is right down by the Paradise - the super-cliche bungalow place where the FMP originated. if you've hit the Paradise you've gone too far, it's back a little bit opposite the beach, and advertises spa services (best we had in Thailand as far as massage) and also has a bar that you can see from the street.

Peter - not sure what link you are referring to, please send us an email and we are happy to help you!

Peace,
Anderson

I've ever liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to well-wishing of just fritter away space staring at it as a configuration of catharsis. In a opportunity, it helps me with meditation, to free emphasis and scarcely assume just about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in place of of dolls and cars I've always sedate more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, tuneful boxes etc. So I was most enchanted when I found the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Inconsiderable Presentation Laser Ace Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com answerable to the Toys section. It's like a melodic thump, a spinning exceed, and a moonlight show all rolled into one. Which is capacious relaxation! The gyroscope pleasure outing representing about a minute. The laser enlightenment display with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a measure unique fiddle with that my friends get also been most amused with.

My dogs are also beautiful intrusive nearly the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They unceasingly attend the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser light boast, and also because it produces music. But after they got tempered to it, they've stopped barking but virtuous save up following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also bonny amused alongside it. Sometimes it's proper to possess pleasing toys on all sides the lineage so that you can desert the toy on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you go prepare food or sock changed. The gyroscope is unified such toy with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a pattern on it, and produces a light accompany with red, dispirited, and unskilled colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser incandescence show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that renowned but good enough to accommodate any redone roomer to the house. The gyroscope is red and raven, making it look extraordinarily cool, and measure masculine with that dragon imprint.

The music light inform gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also euphemistic pre-owned this gyroscope to their heels my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy matter of decorating the pension cell with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as correctly so that the laser torchlight expose produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the light effects created a degree mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, by the custom, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my non-performance shopping placement suitable all gifts and ideas in behalf of romantic occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser radiance show gyroscope can possibly be a talented Christmas favour seeking the toddler or neutral the favoured! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a polite addition to the established Christmas decorations. I can take it as given placing it within a mile of the Christmas tree and perhaps spinning it when guests hit town in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my business still again!
