Rabbit Island

I woke up and walked to the jetty at about 8 a.m. Guess who I saw again. All those guys making the movie. I walked right by and bought my ticket for the boat to Rabbit Island. I had some eggs and rice plus iced milk coffee for breakfast with some men on their way to work.

A bunch of day trippers like me crossed the channel in about five boats. As soon as we arrived, I took off on a little hike around the island. It should've only taken about an hour. Eventually, I came to a dead end in some jungly part,, along with five other French people. After one of them scolded the younger two women for wearing flip flops, we decided to go walk along the rocky shore in the water. It would involve me getting my shoes wet again, but at this point, those shoes were dead to me. I had too many blisters from them. Blech.

After climbing over the jagged rocks, it wasn't long until we met up with the trail again. We claimed a victory over that arrogant old French man. The women were better off in their flip flops than any of us and he had walked back along the path he already took.

When we arrived back at the beach, we had some drinks together and then went swimming for the rest of the afternoon. It was quite idyllic until an annoying loud Polish lady came by to strike up a friendship with whatever other loud lady was around. After living in Asia for so long, it is now extremely irritating for me to overhear other people's asinine conversations, especially when you can hear them bullshit about every single thing. So annoying on an otherwise perfect beach. I got out my iPod and played some nice CBC podcasts for them.

After drying out in the sun, we all piled into the little boats and went right back to Kep. I shook off an aggressive tuk tuk driver who wanted to pay me to drive me back. Why? "Because I like you and we are both lonely." Why else? I walked back to town and took the next bus to Kampot, which left in two hours. So of course I had to have more pepper crab for dinner.

My next hostel was really easy to find, across from the bus station and $3, plus free laundry! Wow! I stayed for two nights.
