Took a dhow out to the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park. The dhow took us through several of the islands then dropped us off at Isle Magaruque. We'd been told that the trip was all inclusive, but on the island park rangers showed up demanding 50,000 Mt park admission. It turns out that supposedly the park rangers don't normally show. There was lot's of argument for about an hour but the rangers wouldn't give. Finally we agreed to pay, but an Israeli couple didn't want to so they went our an floated for a few hours while we just hung out on the beach and burned. I meant to go snorkeling, but the gear they provided us was so bad that I never got around to doing it.
The biggest excitement was that once we got back there was a hose from across the street in the bathroom. It was there so that they could refill the barrel and do some cleaning but we immediately took it over and actually had a shower of sorts!
Went back to John's Place for diner. We were the first there, arriving a good half hour before they were supposed to open. Another fantastic diner, then we were also the last to leave - and this is a popular restaurant.
