The monsoon in Sumatra this year is also particularly heavy with roads washed away... So we have ditched our plans to head south and instead northwards we go in search of dry sunny weather (and an alternative destination to justify our $600 investment in anti malarials bought primarily for Sumatra)!
Night train to Bangkok tonight! Xmas in a flash hotel with pool and WASHING MACHINE (yes! We are SO middle aged...)
