Hurried breakfast, and then on the bus for 4 hours to Sihanoukville. We walked to the beachside to have lunch, overlooking the umbrellas and lounge chairs on the sand. I had a piña colada and an anaemic burger. After eating, we wandered down to the lounges, had a dip, and ordered more drinks until late afternoon. Back to the room to get changed and have an hour downtime before heading back to the same restaurant where they served BBQ fresh seafood. I had two crabs – their bodies the size of my fist. The meat was so sweet and fresh, it was amazing for just US $7. There were parties going on at most of the restaurants along the beachfront so we wandered up and down looking for a crowd. No dice. It was really dead. We gave up about 10pm and went back. In the morning, we bought some breakfast and snacks from a minimart and went back to the same restaurant to pick up tickets to board the speed boat to Koh Rong island. There was a mix up, so instead, we caught a slow boat. It was leisurely and much better I thought, because we could lounge and relax underneath the canopy instead of being crammed in a seat. We set ourselves up on the sand, and had a quick dip. The water was clear and a lovely turquoise colour. Cold currents were coming in from deeper waters, but it was warm otherwise. Then reading on the sand for a bit, until the afternoon storm started gathering. It did no more than spit, but we walked towards the restaurants to await our boat back. The other girls were looking a bit red by the end of the day, particularly my roommate, who had spent most of the boat ride over lying on the deck plus the time we had spend on the beach. We arrived back in the dark and went back to the room. Pommie skin doesn’t do the best in the sun, but she was bright red poor thing. Her stomach was the worst. I was glowing a bit on my cheeks and neck, but it settled down quickly. For dinner, we went somewhere different, and I had green curry, which was kind of like amok, and a cheesy garlic bread.
