... age of 15 yrs. Did I say this before?? Wow, is it hot here!! Feels like 40 above & I'm trying to dress respectively as with Muslim custom & wearing my jersey knit dress that's longer & with sleeves, but I'd be happy wearing a bikini right about now, which would be a horrendous thought!

We were then gifted with a flax crown, ring and handbag while the boys only got a flax hat (like King Julian's off Madagascar!). We enjoyed these gifts while drinking coconut. When the tour had finished we had the opportunity to buy different spices and try some of the local fruit. Excellent tour!

    ... the dive boats we have had over the trip, and this one was a special one. Very African and very rustic. The wood long boat, with small engine, mast, sail and creaky wood planks made for a memorable trip, especially due to the somewhat unkind seas today. The trip to the "Big Wall" our dive site today, was about 1.5 hours on some of the bluest and clearest water we have seen in a while. Once at the dive site we geared up, and all Bond rolled off the side of the ...
