Journal Entry:
Typical day - spent the morning and early afternoon on the beach. There was a little bit of a swell running and I had some fun body surfing. When I'd had enough sun (more sunburn - especially right in the middle of my back where I can't reach!) I went to my hut and sat in the shade and wrote email. Then I wandered in to the village and used the internet. In the late afternoon I decided I was going to be social and was on way to a bar down the beach when I passed a volleyball game short a player. Six games later it was getting dark and I was exhausted. I went for a post sunset swim to try and cool off but it didn't work. So I went back to camp for a cold shower and then just went to the local restaurant where I drank three liters of water and a Pepsi with diner.
