Sunday was another really nice day so again we stayed on our private beach and worked on our sun tan. It was just nice to chill out after the last couple of days in Sangkhlaburi with the children - whilst it was nice it was very tiring. We stayed and watched the sunset before heading into Ban Tai for some food. We found an Italian restaurant and went there for something different; it was slightly more expensive than previous places but so worth it! Its very western on Koh Phangan as so many European people visit here and surprisingly large amounts move here.
The next day was painful. I honestly believe it was the hottest day since I've been here and I cannot cope with hangovers in the heat! Also I was struggling to put much weight on my leg so I wasn't in the best of moods!
Once we arrived back we started to get ready. The Half Moon Party takes place in the jungle and they use UV lights so illuminant paint is a must. Most of us had white t-shirts/vests which we painted with various designs so that we would glow. When we got there, there were various stalls either selling Half moon clothing, or paint. There were a few people doing body painting as well and some the designs looked really good in the light. In order to protect my knee I wasn't drinking too much but had a really good night. The group had to be back by about half 5 as they were travelling back to Bangkok setting off early this morning, but I didn't stay to the end either. After about an hours sleep I woke up to say goodbye to some of the group I've been with for the last month. I managed to sleep another 2 or so but then got up to pack. I'm currently waiting to get my boat to Koh Tao where I'm going to be doing my PADI open water course. Now I'm away from the group I can do what I want and when I want. I can't wait. I have 4 weeks now until I need to be in Singapore to catch my flight to Australia and the options are endless!
