Yesterday was my fancy $200 tour. It was action packed. Jem and I did a full tour. It started with Titou Gorch where I swam through a gully to waterfall (this was my favorite thing of the whole trip I think). It was fantastic. Then we drove to numerous other places, more waterfalls. I'm skipping over most of this..tired now and hungry. Haven't eaten much today.

Then we went to a place with hot baths, cold and medium. Mud baths. Had a yummy lunch. Smoke some local tobaccie. Tried three types of "local rum" (infused rum). Dandelion, basil, and lemongrass. Got pretty tipsy off of that. Then drove back. (I left out the videos from this).

Double timed it up to my treehouse because it was near dark and I didn't have my flashlight. Took a shower by flashlight, which i Love. Tomorrow I am going back to my homestays. Also doing a "mystery tour" for $60 US. Don't know how else to get around without doing that. It keeps me from having to rent a car.

Today I just tried to sleep in because I kept waking up every 1.5 hours to pee. Today I went back to the beach and almost got smashed on a rock, refound my human hip bone, and bathed in the waterfall again. Sent an email to Devon to tell mom I am ok.

I'm a bit homesick and tired of being dirty and wet. I mean it's good and all. But it's more like "Romancing the Stone" good than "Cocktail" good. I don't know if I've actually relaxed and i've stopped "thinking". I really have just "been" while I am here.
