... away from the ocean, I really wanted a place with a balcony that overlooked the water. I must have looked at 10 different places before a man approached me and told me he had a place available right on the water. Skeptical, I decided to take a look.

... But the best of all was the water. The clarity of it was absolutely amazing! Almost like a pool water. Generally the atmosphere on the beach was perfect, exactly something I was looking for. I took my camera out and made some photos but because I hadn't eaten for some time I decided to check one of those little restaurants out and ordered some food. I chose to play safe and went for fried rice with chicken and a bottle of local lager called Lion. I really don't know what is ...
