... love a good turtle egg omelet. Nowadays, theses species are endangered so we decide to visit a hatchery to give a donation and see how we can help.
We come out with mixed feelings about the whole experience. Sure, the locals are trying to help but everything is sort of done the wrong way.

In the evening I met up with Joe and Steven. We decided to head up to the temple that resided on a cliff at the other side of the beach. The waves came crashing in, in addition to ...
