A very surreal day and night spent with some drunkeds

Ban Ho Mae Salong, Thailand

Charly had a bad night with upset stomach and in the morning was still bad. I was a little rough but my consistency is a tad stronger, must be all the beers and chilli I eat that kill everything.

After nursing her for a while, she told me to go for a wander and I did, heading along the undulating road through the village to the day market – not much here, but some nice stalls selling veg and many local teashops. It started to rain so I ducked into a local coffee shop and enjoyed a nice brew with 3 Italian ladies who were passing through.

Heading a little further down the road, I was called over by a crazy looking German fellow, Ulrich, who asked me to join him for a beer, hmm, tricky decision. I went and sat down with his crazy drunk Thai girlfriend (Pim) and he disappeared on his moped, returning 5 minutes later with a crate of Leo (an ok local beer). I chatted with them for a while and enjoyed some beers and after a while a French guy, Sebastian, who had spent the night there after too much beer and whiskey, joined us. (Exactly my kind of people!)

After an hour with them I realised that whilst very nice people they were complete pissheads and a bit crazy too, so offering the excuse of needing to check on poor Charly I decided to head back. My offerings of some money for the beer was turned down with a simple, “you come back later, drink more beer!”

I strolled back and checked on my poorly sick girl who was very much ‘getting it out of her system’, and had no intention of being further than 10m from the toilet. After a few hours of more nursing she told me to go out and have a good time, so I made my way back armed with a big bag of Leo’s. We spent several hours chatting about travel, Germany, France, England and anything else that semi-drunk people ramble about. Pim made some tasty soup and Uli made a fire and some pork BBQ. It was very basic but helped soak up the beer.

Time flew by, and soon I realised it was nearing pumpkin time; I made my excuses and left returning to cuddle up to my poorly girl for the night.
