Today I started the day with a 22min run, to be honest it was a little bit too hot for running. I guess running at 0930 is a little bit too late. So I hope I wake up earlier tomorrow so I can go for a run, and most likely I will, because it's only 2015 here and I'm knackered already.

After my run I had some breakfast and a long phone call with my boyfriend. I'm really looking forward to see him in hong kong in a week. It's a bit sad, but I want the days to go quick so I get there faster, but I should enjoy the days leading up to that day. Today it's only 5 days left, and they will go quick for me because they all involve traveling.

Had a couple of hours of sun, a shower and relaxed for about an hour before it was time to head down to the beach. Evey day at 1730 they release baby turtles into the water, and you can adopt one for 10 quinsales. I bought one ticket and waited. Oh my god (Dios mio) there were so many people who were there for the turtles. It's a good thing what they do, raise the turtles and let them go.

I got to hold him and take some pictures, and they had a rase. My turtle was really slow to begin with, like me, but he cought quickly up with the others;) he didn't like being alone, so we went with th group. I hope he grows up big and strong and that he isn't one of them who gets killed by a big fish out there. I was acutally thinking of that, since this is something that happens everyday I'm sure that the bigger fishes knows that when the sun is going down th baby turtles will come, so I wonder how many that acutally makes it.

After this I stayed at the beach to watch the sunset, it was a bit lonely feeling and was thinking that the next time I will be on a beach with a sunset I will be doing it with my boyfriend;)
I got a big scared because there came a guy up to me, I was about to walk away because I couldn't see if he was nice or bad. But he was only trying to sell me a tour to the mangroves tomorrow morning. I'm sure that if he was a bad guy he proberly wouldn't have come up to me with a loooot of other people around... Anyway I had already said no to he tour to the guy at my hotel. I just can't be bothered getting up at 0500 tomorrow morning for the tour.

I got some dinner at what was suppose to be the best restaurant in town. Maybe it is really good, but what I ordered wasn't my taste... Some tomato spagetthi thing.
I liked however that when I sat down they put a mosquito thingy under my table which was nice.

Speaking of mosqitos, because I was so slow to add repellent yesterday I have gotten myself about 15 stings or so. They were a bit ichy his morning, but now it's only my volcano wound that is bothering me... Not only do they have mosqitos here, they also have a nasty orange fly that is suppose to be really itchy. AND it's active all day;s

Anyway... Now I'm just sitting outside my room chillin it. I'm really tired so I assume I will go to sleep soon. I had a small piece of my marzipan, I still have some left. For some reason I don't really have an urge to eat candy while I'm down here, it must be the heat...

Time to wait for it to be a least 21, so I can go to bed! I will read my Christmas magazine in the meantime, donald duck;) sweeeeet!!!

BTW I will update pictures on this post tomorrow, because the computer here at the hotel is waaaay to slow for me to even try to upload my pictures.. When it takes 5 min to turn a picture I can't be bothered edit them...
