So a long hot day in a bus to Surin and our rather swish Hotel. At least a great deal swisher than the one we stayed in in Bangkok. I was beginning to think this group travelling wasn’t for me. We stop for an hour for lunch and then people come back and discover there is no toilet on the bus and we have to wait for them. Someone drops a cup of coffee in the coach… oh how hilarious is that. Their food needs are eye watering with vegans with nut allergies. They almost all have back problems and some need to stretch on the floor of the coach every hour or so. I’m beginning to think I am worryingly, exceptionally normal.
