This is our day off! We were up early as we were leaving for Ko Samet at 8 a.m. The bus took us to Ban Phe via Rayong, where we were taken by speedboat over to the island. We were taken to see and fish farm and then went on to a very quiet beach. We had a packed lunch of egg fried rice with chicken (which was delicious) and fruit. The sand is almost white and very fine, and the sea is very warm and exceptionally clear. We had deckchairs under umbrellas, so we able to be in the shade. Some of the pupils had henna "tattoos", some girls had their nails manicured, and Mr James and Nora had Thai massages! We got the boat back at 3 p.m. and got back to the Center in time for a shower before walking down to Mass. Then supper and the bus arrived to take us to the airport at around 8.15 p.m.
