Check-in for the fire

Posted by admin On February - 11 - 2007

Its time to say good-bye Koh Phi Phi. Jacob had to go home soon so I decided to join him back to Bangkok. Our ferry left around 1:00pm so we wanted to have a nice last breakfast with a big coconut shake. But everything should change… As soon as we were sitting in the café and ordered one Thai lady started shouting: ” Everybody check-in for the fire!” It seems to be funny in the first second. We thought a little fire at the kitchen. But in fact it was a big fire at the main street at the beach. We were leaving there to help and to take photos. Hundreds of people build chains from the beach to the houses and tried to bring sea water with everything what looked like a bucket. Lots burned and the Thai’s seemed to have not learned after the tsunami disaster couple of years ago. No organized fire fighters or similar things. Finally the people won against the fire and nobody seems to be injured. We could get our ferry at the right time and had an overnight bus to Bangkok.It was one of the worsted bus rides because the whole bus was smelling after toilet….
