... a dip in the pool. We decided to take a drive to Samara because it's so close. It's 14 km but the road is do bad it took us almost 40 min to get there. We made it there and it's a cute tourist town. Lots of "Gringos", hotels, restaurants, surfers, touristy things. We stopped for a smoothie and ice cream and looked in a couple stores. Pretty similar to any tourist destination, t-shirts, wraps, knickknacks, lots of wood carvings ...

... water visibility wasn't that great though and the sharks weren't even in the channel today. Luckily though I managed to find the shark ledge that I always find the sharks in and we ended up seeing about 4 or 5 including a massive one too. So I was so happy we saw them. After that we went back in because the water clarity really wasn't that good and I mean it's hard to beat sharks. I spent most of the time ...
