After a few more nights on Koh Phangan and a couple more back on Koh Samui, and with two more friends in tow (Colette and Becky), we made our way to Krabi which is on South Thailand’s mainland.
We were only staying one night so didn’t get to see much of it but what we did see was very funny indeed. We had dinner and found a bar nearby where we had a very random night with a guy called Richard, from Alabama. He was absolutely hilarious.
He had one tooth and was completely stoned. He told us that he grew his own marijuana and got everyone else to do the work on his land so he can spend the day getting utterly hammered- we took what he said with a pinch of salt! He told us that he had killed a few people, who had ventured onto his land, and promptly retrieved an axe from the back of his truck to embellish his storytelling- a little disturbing!
That was before he had several more drinks, 2 more spliffs and then fell over, trying to get onto a motor bike, and literally rolled down the hill. No one seemed to take any notice (we were a little worried though); I think probably the rest of the bar had seen this more than once. In between his story telling he stopped abruptly, invited us to his farm then gazed into my eyes and told me my eyes were “like a dream” and that “ he could get lost in my eyes”….er sharp exit!
The things he told us were too ridiculous to be true (although so ridiculous they were probably true!). I wish we had taken his photograph but he wouldn’t allow it, maybe he was on the run from killing a few people. Who knows… all I know is that we had a great time with Richard, from Alabama and he made our one night in Krabi to be all the more memorable.
