I took a Tuk Tuk to Palan beach (North of Rapon beach) and spend some time there. The weather was amazing and I've laid under a tree shade by the sea. I've had some coconut water and massage there - what a life!
From there I walked to a restaurant by the end of the beach (recommendation from my travel guide book), on a cliff with a beautiful view. The food was also excellent.
On my way out two girls on a motorcycle asked me some weird questions, my age and country of residence. They asked me to participate on promotion. I had to scratch a piece of paper that would reveal what I could get... one of them was a hat the other was three stars and they all got really excited about that - They wanted to go with me to get the prize - Immediately I knew what this was about - TIMESHARING
Once back to my hotel I went for a change of clothes. Once I took my shirt off I panicked ... my rest under the trees earlier had burned my whole chest and belly...it was all glowing red...and the worst part, it had a very defined white hand mark on my belly (I guess I slept with one hand there). Damn - there it goes my vacation!
Immediately I remembered a place that I saw yesterday where they do massages and burning treatment. I went there, it's on the back of a small convenient shop. They asked me to undress and lay over a bed covered on plastic wrap. They first washed me with cold water and later rubbed a mixture all over my body. After that they rolled the plastic wrap. I suddenly became a big sushi roll. I stayed like that for about an hour while the masseuse massaged my face and body. Once they removed the plastic the redness was almost gone. I could barely see the white hand now. They rubbed some aloe lotion and another hydrating cream afterwards. Vacation saved!
