  FIRE RING-Koh Phi Phi
by mamasan69

Like many of my previous trips it seems that I can't help but injure myself doing something stupid. Alcohol is the usual cause of my blunders, but hey it's all in "fun".
This time I was dumb enough to play with a fire ring and paid for it with a nice burn on my arm for my trouble. Every night one of the bars called the Sunset had a big fire show on the beach with most of the staff involved. After the show the staff would bring out this big fire ring and a fire skipping rope. I never tried the rope but I did try jumping through the ring at least once a night. However on one of my last nights on Phi Phi, I decided to try to flip through it. I did make it and was happy about it, until I noticed a black mark on my arm and realized I got a little too close.
I guess the best advice is not to play with fire especially when there is lots of alcohol involved.
