Exploring Ko Lanta (10.02.09)

Finally, a good night sleep. Although I was woken up at 5:30 by the noise from a nearby mosque (island is Muslim, I guess it was the morning prayer), I felt rested. I spent most of the day on motorbike. After I was picked up and brought to the new resort, I left my stuff in the room, dropped of my laundry, had brunch and rented a motorcycle. Ko Lanta is about 27 km long, and about 4 km wide. I have circled the island 2 times. I managed to do some shopping - better sun lotion, mosquito repellent, t-shirt and hat. It's wasn't as cheap as expected. The highlights of this trip would be:-fantastic view of Andanaman sea and few islands from the viewpoint restaurant-beautiful secluded Klong something beach-sea gypsy village-old Lanta town-riding motorbike off road I had a little bit of hard time to remember where I left my laundry and from where I rented the bike, since there are so many places. Looks like the people who provide this services don't know either, so you could pick up somebody else laundry. I also noticed today that most tourist on this island are Germans. In the evening I walked a lot on the beach. It was full moon tonight.
