        It is like a labyrinth. Exchanged some money. I am rich! I now have 42,000 shillings. Unfortunately it equals $20. Stopped at Africa House Hotel. For the view and a beer. Walked a lot more and stopped at a little Taperia for a ginger lime soda and tapas.

        To the beaches!!!!

        ... southampton lost which was slightly disappointing. We had spent all day bartering with the hotel guide on price for snorkelling/ diving and had managed to get him down $10 each. Then Ryan (ginger) pulled out, we think because his GF Lisa had decided she wasn't going and had pressured him, this meant the trip couldn't go ahead as there wouldn't be enough people to cover costs.

        ... and even expats probably don't see.

        Today was my third day of class and so far it's really, really hard. It's almost all in Swahili and if we don't know a word our teacher explains the meaning in Swahili using other words we don't know. It's really easy to get lost and if you stop concentrating for even 30 seconds it is tough to figure out what is happening. Today, we were also assigned an "insha" or composition about ...

        ... pretty beaded bag for lugging my stuff between the truck and my tent! Back to the hotel for a lovely hot shower and to make the most of the wifi, before going to a bar overlooking the beach for cocktails and to watch the sunset. After a mishap with the money for my drink completely disappearing we went down to the fish market, where there's loads of tables selling every type of fish ...
