Sweet Surat Thani

The Surat Thani bus station has washrooms that remind Warren of university. This is the most Western bus station I’ve seen in Thailand. All the corners are finished and free of dust. There are stools whose seats are sections of tree trunks. The ‘Western’ music they play is some of the worst kind imaginable: John Denver and Don McLean. An as if that wasn’t bad enough, they don’t even play the originals. It’s sub-grade covers of crummy songs. Leaving on an American Pie. Country Roads under a Starry, Starry Night. Surat Thani, you want me to hate you.
