The only way to see the flamingos is to rent a boat (and guide) to take us up the river. It is rather expensive and we were happy to see three German tourists who had the same idea. We split the cost five ways and went to see the beautiful birds. What a sight! We also caught a glimpse of a young crocodile sunning himself on the base of one of the bridges pillars.
After our boat tour, we decided to go down to the beach to get some lunch. I wanted some shrimp but I reckon I didn't make myself very clear. What I got was a delicious whitefish filet stuffed with shrimp, octopus, crab and raisins. I could also taste the cinnamon and cumin...mmmm! It wasn't what I expected, but it sure was good!
