I get up at 8 and get hubby out of bed at 8h45, when we have to leave. You have to give a car back with a full tank, right? And there are only 3 stations on the whole island! We look for it, find it, tank and go to Kirks place. Easier said than done. But hubby is brilliant, as usual and finds the street amongst all streets those street which look the same. We go for breakkie together. I admit: I like this guy: a real 'no-nonsense' person, in some ways like my Tomcat. He goes diving in black shorts and a plain white t-shirt. Let me annoy you with something about diving or divers every day. Divers are show offs. They EITHER have equipment: wet suits, diving computers, masks, BCD's, knives, ... . The 'modest' ones still have their t-shirt. You have to wear a t-shirt if you use the BCD of the shop to protect it from the sun lotion, or body grease. But all of them (us) wear a diving t-shirt from the other side of the world. (I still wear our diving t-shirt from our first diving lessons in the Meridian in Phuket, Broekske).
Kirk does not. No signs he ever dove before. And he is very experienced. Never puts his fins in your face. But keeps an eye on everybody. Speaks perfect Spanish. But does not show off.  We say bye and agree to call for dinner one of these days.
Hubby and me need a rest... . Then we do our finances: I hate it: my accounts, his accounts, same for credit cards, phones, ... . It takes 4 hours to check it all. Then our new friend, Arthuro, the resto manager suggests we go and sit on the roof of the resto. Where we stay for  hours. I chat to my little brother, who is up till 03h30 again. We can chat for hooouuurs. Look where I chatted to you, brother.
We have meal there and then go for a swim for more than an hour.
I hate the finance part, but for the rest: just perfect.
We start thinking about the next destination, though.
First Belize (diving, diving, diving) and then, well, you will see, I am very excited.
We are in bed by 1 and even the Tomcat goes to sleep.
