... sooooooo I been walking up ridiculously steep hills. We gave up in the end when we finally stopped half way up to find monkey on a chain, a talking bird, dead fish hanging from a hut with a billion flies buzzing round it and not a soul in sight! Hmmm We have been snorkelling at a Lil cove to the east. As soon as we got there me stu mark all jumped off a rock straight in to the sea but claire was scared and spent ages trying to jump then all of a sudden she tilted over the edge, ...
... the driver took us all the way up the hill to where he was staying and said it was 1 minute walk further up the hill. We jumped very quickly out of the car thanked him for the lift and continued our short walk to our resort. While walking up both us were thinking what could of happened if the guy was not genuine and actually a murdering psycopath and what a stupid decision it really would have been to get into a random truck.
