Got to Pattaya at 7.30pm, after leaving Hua Hin at about 12 noon. Found a nice Guest House called JJ's for 500 Baht a night - with Air-con. Much nicer than my 300 Baht Hua Hin pig-sty.
Had some food and went for a wander. Found ourselves on a street with mainly ladyboy gogo bars, but enquired with a lady working at the non-ladyboy bar we were drinking in as to where the main area was - walking street. So we headed there after only a couple of drinks - boy are there a lot of gogo bars. We visited a few and J says he feels at home again!
Had a quite one the day after, as spent a LOT of money the first night here. Didn't really do much all day. Visited the beach on the 3rd, only to see I'd forgotten my beach towel again. I paid for a deckchair and J joined me. Was pestered relentlessly by touts selling everything from penknives to deep fried seafood to paintings. Beach isn't up to other places in Thailand's standards, though we'd heard to expect that anyway.
Another heavy one on the 3rd - visited quite a few more gogo bars and J got up on stage with two lovely ladies stripping him off and 'playing' with him. He seemed to enjoy it very much! Saw a ping-pong show later - it felt quite seedy actually and it was a little disappointing. The woman was quite old and rough looking. Me and J noticed at some point during the evening that we were easily the youngest guys in whichever gogo bar it was we were in. Spoke to a dancing girl in one bar and she reminded me very much of On with her mannerisms and cheeky personality.
Think Mind and Marissa are coming to Pattaya tonight, though nothing is ever certain with them girls. Looks like I may have made a mistake with On too. She seemed angry & upset when I told her what Joy had said (although I didn't say it was her who said it). Had a nice chat with her at least, actually made me feel bad for believing other women over her, she seems to genuinely want to see me.
