Just another day in paradise....

They say paradise is simply a state of mind, an illusion brought about by our heightened emotions that are all caught up in the moment so that we do not truly experience things as the really are...

I could care less about all that.

I am having such a savage time here in Punta Banco. The people have been amazing to me, both locals and volunteers. The area is simply beautiful. To make things better, every now and then, the threat of rain hides away to reveal amazingily clear blue skies...

It is rare when I wake up back home and think..."I can't wait to go to work..."! Here, that's how I feel everyday. Well. Almost everyday. Almost. I'm still human after all. Everyday back home in Dublin, sitting at my desk, in my office, I constantly find myself dreaming of being somewhere else. It's not that I hate my job. It's more that I do it each and every day. Things become mundane after long enough. I am sure that living on a beach doing a job that you truly enjoy could eventually become mundane too, after awhile. Although I would not mind giving it a try sometime.

After a "hard" day's work, we popped down to the rock pools to make the most of the beautiful weather, as short lived as it may have been. It was still lovely. I love swimming in the rain in any case.
