    kayak for a few hours and paddled around an island opposite the lake.
    We saw loads of fish eagles high up in the trees. We spent quite a
    bit of time with two girls called Camilla and Elizabeth who were also

    ... ready to throw a punch. It turns out, in his craziness, he thought we were Americans (as most people do) and that a touch to my lily white face might be his ticket to America. It was such an invasion of space, despite being crammed between people on all sides, an intentional touch to the face is different, personal.
