No holiday is complete without some hiccups. But all was rectified. Love their breakfast spread at the Square.

In the evening we had arranged to meet Carla and Lucy (the other elective students in A&E), as well as Ahmed for the pub quiz at El Centro. We arrived a bit earlier to grab some tea, I had a lovely chicken kebab (3 of them!) with ...

Unfortunately, what comes with this beautiful land is a lot of garbage. I can only hope that through continued education the locals will understand that the sea is not a place for garbage and the country will rally together to do more to avoid any further devastation of the ...
