... hatchlings. There was only one little turtle baby in the whole hatchery! We decided to name him Albert, then removed him from the nest for Manuel to release in the morning, hopefully by that time some of the other hatchlings will have made their way up through the sand from the nest.

Tea was another culinary triumph cooked up by Rachel - lentil dahl, cheese and lime rice served with a homemade mango chutney. This was then topped off when Rachel brought out the surprise ...

... around camp. After breakfast we were shown to the hammock deck, an a-frame building with corrugated roof and net sides, and attempted to put up our hammocks. I could only get one end of mine to hold, and when Vicky got in hers, she ended up lying along the floor! Not the most successful attempts but luckily we had Kelly (rope tying expert) on hand to sort them out for us! After we had sorted all our things out, we were given a quick tour of camp by Dan, ...
