Lucy finally escapes Dubai and returns to Samui (via Kuala Lumpur and Phuket) on 10th Dec. She'll be back in the hotel on 11th, hopefully.
Olwen returns to Dubai from UK on 10th accompanied by my baby sister - Martina - who will look after her while I'm at work, until we too head for Samui on 17th. Martina returns to Manchester later on the same day.
Olwen is still wheelchair bound by breaks to her right wrist and heel, and our chef - Yok - is still incapacitated with her own fractured hip. With regret, we advise that we will be unable to produce our traditional Baan Bophut Christmas Lunch for hotel guests and Samui friends.
