I leave about 2:20. H insists on accompanying me to the door, even offers to call a taxi for me, but I want to have a look at Hollywood disco before going home. Having stayed that long (2 hours), I can as well wait for closing (3 am), so I take a seat on one of the benches outside. A good vantage point, the light is behind me, so I can see clearly who is walking past. Already at 2:50 a steady stream of customers leaving the disco, gets weaker at 3:15, so I take taxi home.
Most boys spoke decent English (even when drunk), so I didn't use my Thai. In fact, there is nothing I can gain from speaking Thai, so I don't even tell them that I speak Thai. I use Thai as a secret weapon, should a cute boy who does not speak English come along, or to read or listen to boys unaware of my understanding of Thai. I will definitely not tell a boy who is not cute and wants to talk with me, but doesn't speak much English, that I can speak Thai.
