Well, I’m back in Bangkok at the mo and heading for Australia later on today for the next leg of this round the world experience. Did wanna get all this banged out and caught up with by the time I hit Oz, but I’m a notoriously slow typer, so its taking me forever and is costing me a fortune!!!!!! Its lucky there’s no propa long stories happening at the moment, cos I dont think I’ll ever catch up! I am experiencing loads of wonderful synchronisms though which are making life a lot simpler and straight forward. You know what I mean, meeting the right person at the right time or being in the right place at the perfect moment in order to take advantage or create an opportunity.
Like this morning, for instance…. I was walking along knowing I had to sort out my lift to the airport and was going to the place where I got my mini bus ticket when I returned to England a month ago (I had a really good giggle with the woman there when I bought the ticket. As I was waiting there we had a bit of banter and played noughts and crosses and then boxes for about 45 minutes until the bus came). I thought it’d be nice to say hello anyhow and so I went back there.
Anyway, when I got there, the place was gutted….. being totally renovated, so I thought…..oh well, I’ll try elsewhere. Then as I walked along I heard a woman calling out “LEE….LEE!!!”. I looked up and it was the woman riding her bike along the road!!!! She looked really pleased to see me and said “I’ve been thinking about you” and I said “And I’ve been thinking about you too…. I need a bus to the airport!!!”. She laughed and said “This way”!!!
Anyway, as she starts selling me a ticket she mentions the mini bus will take 1 1/2 hours to get to the airport cos there’s many people to pick up. Then my intuition kicked in and I thought it’d be better to get a cab. So I said “I’m gonna think about it first and have breakfast”. She said “ok” and so I went next door, where there was a guest house restaurant, and as I’m looking at the menu I looked up and there was Yonick (a French guy who I was on the rafting trip with). We had a chat, and it turned out that him and his mate’s flight for France was leaving within ten minutes of my flight to Sydney. They were also debating whether or not to get a taxi or mini bus to the airport. But with three of us it should be cheaper to get a taxi and also be quicker and easier!!! Job done!!!! And so I’m hooking up with them as soon as I finish this email!!!
So anyway, after I finish the Cambodian section… it’s off to Oz!!!!
Love and Light,
