... heaven. We have an oyster omelette as first course and then slat and pepper cuttlefish. Once again cheap and very tasty. I could get used to eating all this yummy seafood. We head back to our accomodation for an early start tomorrow. Our room is quite basic, with only a blanket, no top sheet so I use my sarong as a sheet then the blanket. The other guests are very noisy and keep my awake most of the night. This is the first time we have had this problem. Not much sleep ...

We made it up that rock face, meanwhile, all the bopping headlights that were below us had turned back. ***** - we were alone. With only 400 metres to the summit our guide told us that it was too dangerous to continue and that we had to go back. We sat huddled next to each other on a cold rock. Our hands were freezing.

Eventually we braved it around two and spent the next couple of hours sunbathing and swimming as well as getting bitten to death by the sandflies! I have no idea why but all of a sudden we seem to be covered in bites this week after the beach without having any trouble in the previous 7 weeks! ...
