Our hopes are sunk!!!

We have mentioned in our blog that books are shared by our guests whilst they are staying with us and that some of these books are donated to foreign prisoners doing time in Thai jails.

Well, now we are all very disappointed to learn that the ‘Hope’ (the World’s largest floating bookshop)
will no longer be visiting us.

After the recent 'negotiations' between taxi drivers and tour operators at the Deep Sea Port - where the 'Hope' had intended to berth - the Phuket Gazette has been flooded (sic) with accusations that the behaviour of certain members of the community in Phuket had changed the attitudes of the ship's captain?

Other conspiracies mentioned in the comments, include that the vessel is avoiding Phuket because of the inflated charges for fixing a generator here.

I know Tim is disappointed because he had a list of purchases that he was going to make… he will just have to keep searching the libraries at
Kantary Bay and Cape Panwa

But there are rumours that the Liverpool 'legends' will be visiting…
