Yesterday I awoke
to having my new, expensive, flipflop Teva sandals missing from outside my
bungalow. I understand it could
have been worse, like having my computer, camera or passport stolen, but dam,
who steels a persons shoes? The absolute best sandals I’ve ever owned, they
were so comfortable.
In the afternoon
I went exploring the island on my motorbike
with rocks and reefs to check it out. With camera in hand I ventured out on the
reef to try and capture an image or two only to discover that the reef was as
slippery as ice. Not having my skates on, my left leg went flying outwards,
catapulting my body backwards and onto the reef. I landed on my hand and saved
my swinging camera from smashing into the rocks. The trade off was that my big
left toe got gashed by the barnacles on the reef and opened up a good wound.
Needless to say, my day of exploring was over and heading back to my bungalow
for some dressing. A girl from Switzerland had a little medical pouch and with
it saved my toe and thus, saved my life. Ha.
