Journal Entry:
Pretty much a completely slack day - the others are all hung over. We bought a huge pile of prawns from a local fisherman - Dean and the others were going to cook - but then they wimped out so we paid the lodge $1 to cook. Claudia's foot is still bothering her so we leave her behind to clean the prawns and the rest of us head to the market. I explored the market yesterday and there's nothing interesting to me in town so I leave the others and head back. Lucky me Claudia is not done so I help her with the rest of the prawns and hand them over to the kitchen. They finish pretty quickly but we have to wait an hour for the others to get back. It's an awesome prawn curry.

For diner we go to John's Place which had been highly recommended by the guide books and other travelers. Diner to was excellent, so good that we make arrangements so that John will have exactly what we want tomorrow.
