Red Hot Pants and No Hands: Saturday 16th July

Waking up to see the sun rising over the Pacific Ocean was a particular treat this morning, and almost made up for the fact that by 7am I was already rapidly beginning to melt. By 9am we had arrived at the campsite, unpacked, and set up, so we headed down to the beach where I continued to melt, whilst treating my fellow beach-goers to my red hot pants and David Hasselhoff-gait.

Spotted just above the men’s squat toilet at the campsite. Unsurprisingly this particular toilet remained pristine throughout the day.

The highlight of the day was definitely when we hired bikes, so that we could go around the island. What made this particularly amazing was that I finally learnt how to ride a bike with no hands! Turns out you just need to keep peddling, in order to keep the momentum going. Not sure if island roads were the best place to do my apprenticeship, but it was definitely an incentive to improve quickly!
