There was a very bad thunderstorm today so most of the day we stayed in the hotel and watched tv, used the internet or just had a relaxin bath and then something to eat at the buffet. it was ok to take a relaxing day out from our three weeks in the sun hehe!
mopin around the resort today we met two american girls who were fun to hang out with, once rain had stopped we headed back to ricks but only for a few hours to say hello to adeeba, knoxley and the gang, and let them know we would be back for a proper night out on wednesday :).
the american girls and I hung out on the beach all night and went for a midnight swim ... how scary ! lol but it was someting I hadnt done before so thought Id give it ago it was relaxing but we didnt stay in to long for safety reasons I would hate to hear the work ''SHARK!'' about now lol.
anyways after the beach we all went back to our rooms to relax.
