We dine on the beach and our waiter is a young chap from the east coast who loves surfing. We are debating what to drink when he comes up with a novel approach.

After near s**ting myself after, we jumped in tuk tuk and headed 7kms up the road to what was promised to be a lonely, long stretch of beach.
