I woke up with the sun rising at about 08:00 and got up to start uploading photgraphs before anyone else started using the campsite internet. Erica only awoke at 09:30 and we both probably had about a glass of wine too many last night. Still we got ready and went to drop off the quad. Unfortunately I asked the woman if she could reduce the price even further if we took it for a couple of other days, reluctantly she agreed, we now have two days hire for cheaper than most shops will do a day, the only problem was dropping the bike back off, the shop was shut on a Sunday. The lady however suggested a solution that would not be possible in most other places in the world, "you take the bike to the airport and leave it in the carpark", "what shall I do with the keys I enquired", "just leave them in the engine, oh and your deposit is here, if you crash the bike or damage it in the mean time please let us know so we can sort out the rapair cost". How very strange, so anyway jealous me in the jungle because we didnt get a motorbike to the airport now get to go to catch a plane on a quad bike.

We headed back accross the island by quad again to spend the day on the beach. It was fabulous with a good breeze and nice warm water. I finished my book but back on one meal a day we were starving by 2 o'clock. We came back with Erica agreeing to get us back up to date on the blog again so she could get out of the sun, I'm afraid we didnt hold our ground very well and lost our shade from the palm tree to several other families.

We got back, drank some coke, did some blogging and had a very different tea of chorizo, tomato and red wine pasta for the third night in a row, that is in fact all we have eaten in three days three bowls of pasta each. We sat around in the sun and watched the sun go down again. Today has been a fairly camera free day so we have put some sunset pictures from the last few days. Easily the best sunsets of our trip so far, it almost makes you want to cry (at least after about 15 kegs of wine it does!!!).
