Vagabonding
9th Oct 2006
Mal says: Farewells

Well today we sadly bade farewell to the Lighthouse Collective and the shores of Ko Pa Ngan. Fortunately we get to meet these awesome people again in New York and Ireland, where they have promised to show us the shittiest dives their hometowns have to offer.
Given this knowledge that we will be plumbing the depths of the diviest of dives, we thought it appropriate to get certified as divers, so we are currently in Ko Tao completing an open water course. Ko Tao is just north of Ko Pa Ngan and is one of the five best dive sites in the world so we are lucky to be able to come in the low season while it’s cheap cheap.
A side note here. The roosters in Thailand lack self confidence. Aussie roosters (and most roosters worldwide.. as far as I am aware in my paltry poultry knowledge.. tee hee) let out a full “cock-a-doodle-doooooo!” Where as the Thai roosters here just do a half arsed “Cock-a-doodle-errgh”. They cut off the “dooo” each time and it sounds like they have been strangled mid crow. And yes, we have been in ear shot of roosters in almost every destination.
