... a connecting flight. Panicky poo mode set in. It turned out that the flight was not delayed as long as we first thought. The plane took off an hour after it was supposed to.

We spend the days swimming and playing in the pool, drinking exotic fruit juice under coconut trees or in the hammocks. It takes us three days before we make the effort to walk down to the beach, feed the fish, and swim in the clear water. We started off with the idea to go ...
... drinks!! Rum coke, rum pineapple = 100peso!
So there we are minding our own business, enjoying the show, more and more people watching now, and all of a sudden someone grabs me from behind...... It's only one of my friends Christos, a guy who i used to work with a few years back!!
We catch up over drinks, have some more drinks, then one more, but now we have run out of money, so we decide to go get some more from the room, so we grab a tricycle ...
