The next day was spent pretty much the same, in the pool, sun baking, eating, drinking with a walk along to beach to the spot where the river meets the sea for a quick dip and cool down.

And once again went straight to the immigration office in the airport, even though we had a night in a hostel before the flight. We were a bit nervous at this point, what if they told us we couldn't fly tomorrow and we had to buy new flights, what if they charged us an extortionate fine or tried to bribe us on ...
