We knew the first boat for Nong Khiaw left at 9.30 am this morning, but thought that this was a bit early and that we’d chance a later boat. We get to the boat landing at 10.30, and even after waiting until about 2pm there is still no chance of another boat. Whoops. We decide to stay another night and get the boat in the morning. I find a room which seems fairly bug free.
After eating in the evening we come back to the room, and as I am placing out candles, as the power has gone off, I notice a big spider, as big as my hand. I hit it with my sandal, and get it, but we’re a bit on edge after than. We secure ourselves inside the mosquito net, and manage to get a reasonable nights sleep.
