Snorkelling on the Japanese Gardens.

We woke up around 10am, watched some TV, made some breakfast and eventually, when all the others were FINALLY ready, we made it down to the beach to get a taxi boat. It was such a trauma as they could hardly speak very good English and just didn’t have a clue what was going on. In the end they crammed 20 of us onto the smallest boat ever. It was a bit of a nightmare and took forever. We also hired snorkelling gear from them and in the end went to Japanese Gardens diving island. It was however, only £4 for a return journey and equipment. 
It was absolutely beautiful and one of the best things I’ve ever done. The water was so clear and the fish were so close. They weren’t afraid of humans at all, in fact, they kept fucking biting us, it kinda hurt! One made me bleed :(. But no, it was so worth it and so surreal swimming next to all the fishys amongst the coral.
Afterwards, the salt water hurt my eyes so I ended up sunbathing whilst reading and occasionally chatting to a lovely married Argentina couple who were on their honeymoon. I spoke to lots of people actually, it was nice. I then rejoined the water for a chat with some others. Our entire group were all so lovely and friendly it was a fab atmosphere. I did get rather tanned / burnt though. Thankfully I stopped when I did because I am starting to go slightly red but currently, its just really tan.
When we got back around 6:30, I skyped Matt for 30 minutes which was really nice, I could actually see and hear him - shocker! It was good to hear what he’d been up to and that.
Afterwards back at the hostel everyone sat round and watched a few films including Easy A, wooo. I couldn’t be bothered to go out drinking again, too much effort, but I went to bed quite late to make me tired for tomorrow’s journey back to the main land.
I’m really looking forward to the next few days, we're hoping to ride elephants and go to this meditation retreat with monks that Dan told us about.

One of our friends at the top of a view-point Olivia went to.
