Journal Entry:
Spent the morning on the beach. Packed up to head down to the Campo Nature Reserve (75 km down a bad dirt road), but then realized we were missing a set of key (we had two sets). Spent a couple hours searching, and reviewing the key's movements from last night. Finally concluded they must have been taken off the table or out of the door while we were sleeping.

We informed the hotel that we would be back tonight and they said we could just pay up tomorrow when we checked out for good. However when they saw us pulling out with most of our gear they decided not to risk it - so we had to wait around nearly an hour for them to add up our last three days of binging. By this time we're running over three hours late on our day trip to Campo, so we decided to skip it and have a nice lunch in Kiribi then walk around the town itself. Had a great lunch at a Chinese restaurant (!!) then spent a couple hours wandering around the sleepy town. Back at camp went swimming had a few beers and a plate of fried plantains for dinner. We decided against another moonlight swim when we saw a huge log (maybe 3 feet in diameter and 15 feet long) rolling around in the surf.
