This was too much for one girl in our group who left leaving me and Mikala to finish the night by watching everyone try to fall into someone else's arms before the place shut down. We decided to have one more drink, which lead to quite an entertaining walk home. Watching almost every male chase the two females lesbians down the ...

I also purposely let the sun burn my bum as it has flatly refused to tan at all for the entire time I've been here!
Every now and then me and Johanna got too hot so we wandered down to the sea ...
