Journal Entry:
Not an exciting day but still good. Walked through the village for fruit and bread (breakfast, lunch, and diner). Explored the beaches where the fishing boats come in (an incredible variety of fish, eels, rays, sharks, giant shell fish and crabs) must be several hundred species in their daily catch. Rest of the day was spent swimming in the very warm water and laying in the sand. Went to bed early (no disco!) due to exhaustion but couldn't sleep, spent most of the night reading.
