... but friendly man!
We spent the day on the beach snorkelling & while the snorkling in the corals was ok, the trip was made totally worthwhile when I hit my knee on a rock only to find it was actually a huge turtle, and soon we were surrounded by 5/6 of the gorgeous fellas, Grahame's go-pro got used to the max and 'turtle-selfies' became the theme of the day!! When they eventually got fed up of the limelight and swam off we headed for a drink ...

... today =) I went to the beach, swam in the pool & went to the teaching projects this afternoon. Tomorrow morning I'm going to the monk school with Sahiba to see if I can help out there.
At the weekend Simi left & 2 new girls arrived, Steph (also from England) and Abi (from Canada). Everyone is lovely & it's been great to hear all their travelling stories.
