Waterfalls and ring of fire.

All recovered from the full moon party someone suggested a trip to the nearby waterfalls called Kbal Chhay waterfalls, so a plan was made to meet at 12 as before at the bar. About half 12 everyone was up and had breakfast and we ordered a picnic from Monkey republic to take, we all squeezed into 2 tuk tuks and away we went, it took about 20 minutes to reach the waterfalls and all the way we were trying to decide the theme of the next party Leroy had said he wanted. The waterfalls were pretty big and fairly impressive, they were the biggest we have seen yet while traveling. We were all feeling quite peckish so we set off across bridges and through streams to get to a little picnic area where they have big tables you can all sit on and hammocks swinging around and eat our little picnic and have a few tinnies. While we were loads of little girls selling a whole load of snacks that they carry in a basket on their heads came and sat with us and had a little giggle at us. Just as we were finishing up a woman in pajamas came over and said she wanted $2.50 for the use of the tables but seeing as we had already paid an entrance fee we knew she was just trying her luck so we finished up and headed for the falls, she did however manage to pinch Cloe’s flip flops. We all got in our swimmers and hopped into the water and gingerly walked over the slippery rocks into the falls and had a good old splash around for a couple of hours. While we were all sitting chatting the tuk tuk driver came down and said that rain was coming and if we didn’t leave then the dirt road would turn to thick mud, so with that we all got back in the tuk tuks and headed back to Monkey. After everyone got cleaned up and had a nibble it was time for drinking games! Ring of fire was the game and by 10pm we were all in a pretty disgusting state, hopped in tuk tuks and went to the beach and Sessions to get even more hammered yet again, we ended up in Freddy’s room at about 6am and thats when we called it a night and strolled home to bed. The following day was spent in bed, at Britannia for a roast dinner or at the cinema, basically recovering yet again…
