Today, the three of us went for a hike around the beautiful island of Lipe hitting up all the beaches, bars, sand bars, tight ropes, and jungle bars, and still were able to make it home for another unbelievable sunset. 

The trip around the tiny island is quiet as there are no cars or mopeds allowed on the island.  More than once I lost my breath at how magnificent the views were. 

Around midday we come upon the most picturesque beach I have ever seen!  The pictures, although amazing, don't quite do it justice as the water was also absolutely perfect.  We hung out with a few "locals" who had been coming to the island for about six months a year for the past 8 years.  The couple worked at the local bar by night and enjoyed life by day, paying something like $3 a day to live.  The guy tried to teach me how to tight rope over water, but my shaky legs weren't having any of it!

A relatively relaxed night wound up getting a little out of control when our group merged with a large group of South Africans at our bungalows.
