I woke up when someone banged on my door at 11:45. Check out was at ten and I'd planned on being on my way to the airport by then. Somehow I'd slept right through my alarm - this was a first for me as I have the worlds most obnoxious alarm. I apparently drank a lot more that I thought last night as I was not feeling good. I quickly packed, showered, and paid my bill and by 12:45 I was in a taxi on my way to the airport. I shared the taxi with someone else so at least it was cheap. I got to the airport at 1:30 with only a half hour until my flight and I couldn't find the desk that I was supposed to check in to. Then I realized there is another terminal for domestic flights. I was told it was a kilometer down the road so I tried to get a taxi but I couldn't make the driver understand so I gave up and hiked. By the time I got to the desk I only had ten minutes until departure. I asked the clerk if there was any room on a later flight, but she told me all the seven later flights were full, there was nothing available until tomorrow evening. But then she asked if I still wanted to go on my scheduled flight - this is less than ten minutes before departure!
Amazingly I made the flight. The flight was not exciting and I was still not feeling well. I didn't really feel hungover - more achy and feverish. From the Phuket airport I took a shuttle bus into Phuket Town. Phuket Town is in the middle of the island, away from the beaches, but I have a recommendation of some place to stay and I really don't want to deal with searching. At the hotel I went straight to sleep. After a five hour nap I got up and had a great dinner. I felt a little better, but still way under normal. I went back to bed but then discovered the other joy from last night - many, many, many bites of some kind and they'd really started to itch. After an hour of trying not to scratch I finally fell asleep.
