Beautiful place to stay. Great little individual houses with good size bedrooms and half open bathrooms. Extremely comfortable beds, everything catered for (hairdryers, glasses in the rooms etc), wonderful swimming pool, very spacious open relax/dining area and the owner is a great cook.

It was nice and relaxing and skin def felt better after, although you sweat so quickly out here it doesn't last long. I then had to grab my dinner as had all decided to eat there, before jumping onto the bus to the YC as the other girls didn't know if they had a rehearsal or not so we all went back together. Luckily fish and potato wedges ...

... keep the peace got in; luckily he spoke all three languages, and listened to us about the map. Finally we got to the hotel,  it wasn't that late just felt it. Although fairly basic by some western standards, the hotel is really lovely with good beds, a good shower and wifi. Walking along to the restaurant later that night we realised that we were right next to a UN base. The food was again lovely but totally different from other foods we've had ...

... t care. But now I have a freshly reviewed visa for one more month, so I will stick it out, and when the time comes to reapply next month, we'll see if it happens..... After I leave immigration, which I hope is not going to be to late as I've been sitting here for 5 hours..
