I left out one detail from my previous post, “3 Crazy Days in Koh Phangan.” His name is Franco. How should I introduce Franco… By my third night on the famous party island, I was beat. My friends Bailey and Ada were still enjoying the music and the sweaty dancing, so I left them to… Continue reading Interview with Franco, from Argentina
