... me I needed a leather jacket so we looked in a few shops and tried some before finding one that we were both happy with. It cost $120 AUD which Margot says is a bargain so I hope she's right. Our last stop was at Peguche where weaving is the main industry. The place we went to was like one of those obligatory places to visit, where the guide gets a kick-back from any purchases.

... events to the attention of our guide, or naturalist as he prefers to be called. Quick as a flash the guide, Hirow, is in the water and searching for the casualty. It was like watching Mitch Buchanan in his prime. Unfortunately, Hirow could not provide the silver lining on this occasion. The mask and snorkel had perished. When one of our group asked Rach about her thought process, she said she thought I would have jumped in. A reasonable assumption you might think, except ...
