      ... our feet and flood the bathroom. After alerting the staff we got moved to another room, jumped in the shower and to our horror there was no hot water. After a slightly less friendly conversation with the guy at reception we got moved again to another room where we finally enjoyed a joyous shower. Our mood lifted significantly and we went and enjoyed a late lunch feeling we were owed it as i missed the lunch and Jack lost his. We had a really chilled evening drinking tea and ...

I basically bought a pop and then alternated washing things down with that or the rice and skipped the octopus. After lunch we had about an hour drive to the next part of the island and I promptly fell asleep in the car.
