Grinding coconuts to make the coconut milk and filleting the fresh catch of the day before smelling the onions and garlic fry made our taste buds water!
After a delicious dinner, we were treated with a special treat! Some of the locals gathered to play some typical Garifuna music, Punta. Banging on the drums, turtle shells and singing in true Garifuna style it was not hard to get up and join the families kids in a dance!
In the morning we joined a New Yorker called Meg on a boat headed for Utila
Note: Have you ever woken up to the sound of water splashing on the bedroom floor? That night it rained heavily outside but I didn't hear the forecast for rain INSIDE. I sat up to see Simon peeing tequila at the end of the bed. LUCKY the bedroom floor was just concrete and thank god he didn't do it next to me on the mattress!
