    We got up at the crack of 9am, loaded up the Fino, and hit the road.




    To McDonald’s.



    We all need sustenance.




    Protective clothing in case of attack dogs and body guards.

    Oh Jaysus, Manny n' Lulu.






    Brontosaurus country.




    Always refreshing to stop off for a cool drink, and appreciate, clean, beautiful Mother Nature.

    Coming into Pai.


    The road sign had been grammatically corrected with a marker.

    He was here alright.

    One of the ears on the ground put the search team up for the night.






    Put dressing gowns in me backpack and continued the search.



    Perfect for detailed scouring from afar.


    To the balcony.







    Manny?


    Mannnny???

    Did Sproglette go?

    Its shame Thailand doesn't have the CCTV coverage of countries like the UK, you could have enlisted the aid of NSANev in the search.

    I did a van ride to Pai and that will never be repeated, third worst of my life after Vang Vieng to LP but top prize went to Kathmandu to Pokhara. I'd rather get thrown out a plane with a parachute and be asked to pack it on the way down than repeat that again - hangovers did not help.

    Word came in of a probable location. Suspect restaurant serving fish and chips incorrectly.

    Drowning sorrows.




    To Walking Street.

    The smell of Manny was in the air.





    This sustenance quickly went in the bin.










    Genuine Mexican Food.

    That's more like it.

    Up at the crack of root o'clock and to the balcony for morning scouring.

    In the field, inspecting the crops? It couldn't could it.

    Off to Pai Canyon.





    100 meter hike.

    No pain no gain.












    Must be great fun when you're half way out and it starts bucketing it down.

    Dejected, lost, it was time to admit defeat and move onto the next rumoured location.


    Suddenly, upon turning onto the 1095, there was a voice… a voice calling to me.





    I’d heard it before.




    I’d recognize it anywhere.



    The words carried on the wind like Mozart’s 5th.


    Music to my ears.





    It was him!

    And there he was…










    As happy as could be.

    Wanker. There was hope and then you dashed it. I was holding it together, just, but then those words - and he's right, you Rat you Jerk.

    I'm off

    Cheers.
