I (Freelea's Mum) spent 6 days with Freelea, Harley,Rich,Derek,Choi and Nick at the "Raw Vegan" house and it was great, they made us very welcome and we enjoyed many hours of delicious fruit eating-especially Durian and great discussions on everyone's journey to this point. Choi made beautiful salads and we had a Durian party one evening with friends bringing Durian and everyone enthusing about the great taste sensation.
I went there every morning and had beautiful coconuts, both the water and the flesh(how I miss those coconuts!) as they had about a ton delivered to the house for all to enjoy. I went to the Yoga school and participated in a class and oogled the "hot" yoga teacher. We went marketing to Thong Sala for fruit and bought delicious Dragonfruit, Durian and passionfruit by the kilos.
Even though Koh Phan gan is known as the Party Island because of the drunken "full moon" parties on the beach at Had Rin we managed to mostly avoid that and I hired a cycle and peddled around from place to place just enjoying the freedom of being there.
I have been home now 3 weeks but still missing thelovely times I had there.
