... treat myself to an island manicure and pedicure. Little did I know that the gorgeous girl who did my nails would take over two hours to do them. The longest nail session ever, but it was island time where things were just slow. She was so divine and shared so much with me about the life of being a local. The Island was a grand total of 8 kms long and 1.6 kms wide, so nowhere was too far. I strolled back to our hut to find Braden and Stu ready to have dinner and drinks with ...

... and it was really awesome but the apartment we stayed in was a bit drab and smelly. It was outside the main complex, facing the street, meaning we had to buzz in and out of the communal area all the time. Add to that we had to ask for it to be serviced.
