... the way it goes but we rested well and caught up on a few things (diaries, laundry, exercise), even *enjoyed* cooking a couple of meals! We visited a really nice new park in the city centre with our dorm-mates (not the American ones...) which has masses of newly installed fountains and twice weekly light shows projected into the spray. There were dancing figurines, hypnotic patterns and Pink Floyd-esque lasers firing all over the place along to dramatic classical ...

We removed and sheltered under large palm fronds which served as reasonable umbrellas as we dashed back to the lodge. A shower was in order, ...
So Lisa and I ended up spending nearly four hours at the tiny airport waiting for our flight. We had something to eat, browsed around the overpriced souvenir shops and read for a while, and at 12:20 it was finally our turn to board.
