We get up late, enjoy brekkie and go for strolls. Wonderful place. Even Dr T is enthusiastic! We walk the about 2km stretch, full of hotels, resto's, diving shops and bars. We inquire about internet. The room above the transmitter becomes available tomorrow and, if we decide to stay longer, we will move. Diving: you sign up on a white board, hanging on 'our' diving shop and pay in the end. The more dives you do, the cheaper per dive, sounds good to us!

I really need a second bikini. I dislike putting a wet bikini on and sometimes, it is not dry after swimming of diving. We do find a nice ensemble, bikini and skirt.
Since we do not have internet in the room yet: we have to go to the diving shop downstairs: we do not complain!

We have a couple of beers and play cards on the beach, when we realize, we do not have our repellent. Dr T gets it from the hotel. He is gone, like 10 minutes and, yes, it happens. I get bitten. Not by mosquitoes, by sand flies.

They are less the 1mm, result in red spots, which do not itch ... if you are not allergic. And I am. I have about 200.

They swell up during the evening and start to itch. We have a very nice meal at the hotel, where I share my pasta/salmon with the cat. DO NOT TELL ANYBODY!!!

Back in the room, the bites get worse and worse. My whole back in one swollen, red spot. For the sadists: yes there are pictures. But I am not sending them.

Oh, well, it will be better tomorrow.
