Hanging out at the Treehouse on Long Beach

Escaped to the island of Ko Chang after Bangkok, en route to Cambodia. Ko Chang is a large, mountainous island with 4 or 5 main white sand beaches. After one night on Lonely Beach, which was not-so-lonely due to the rapid tourist development on Ko Chang, I escaped to the southern enclave of Long Beach, which takes about an hour to get to on the motorscooter I rented. There is one guesthouse there, Treehouse, where I met a good group of other travelers and caught up on some reading and formulated a plan for Cambodia.

Once again a little lighter in the wallet as I took a little spill on the motorscooter and had to shell out $60 dollars for damages, despite my negotiating skills. As for me, in case you were wondering, I'm fine except I'm now lacking the tip of my right big toe. New equation I learned: Winding roads + slick pavement + darkness + slick tires + blind curve = ditching a motorscooter. It could have been worse, and I do count my blessings. Apparently my week of living dangerously in Thailand continues. I'm sure things will be easier in Cambodia.
