... a short safety demonstration from the crew and we were off and running. Christine and I changed into our bathing suites and headed to the front of the boat to lay in the nets.

Guys were actually polite and asked me if I wanted to dance rather than trying to make me, which was a refreshing change. I still declined though, if I'm going to dance it's going to be with my friends who I came to see ;) However once it got to after 1pm I sensibly sent myself home to bed so I wouldn't die the next day, I really can't do hangovers in this heat, ...
