Hi WolfsEye :) Thank you for the quick response. I know the copyright is not yours, and thank you for your willingness to send it to me. I can assure you, its for personal use only, meaning wallpaper use only - no distribution or selling it for millions of dollars. Just for me.

First time i was in Koh Phangan was 2001, and the beach was still pretty empty, not totally but mostly. When i was in 2005 they were already two guest houses and two restaurants and in the process of building the 'concrete monster' - the medium size ugly hotel. I was also in the beginning of 2007. What a change.. Of course, its still fun because its a tropical island but its not like it used to be, that's for sure. By the way, the whole island changed as you might have noticed.. there are so many ATM's in Haad Rin, i was shocked. We need to keep looking for virgin beaches although i think its getting much harder these days - every local guy thinks he's an entrepreneur and start over developing.

Cheers

Daniel
