Day 1 Day 1 where I discover Koh Samui in daylight and find myself on knees in the middle of a street receiving blessings from two monks. An hour on the beach and a doubt in my mind: Is there any difference between a traditional Thai massage and Thai boxing Muai Thai - when you're in the receiving end?
