I managed to drag myself out of bed, the effects of last nights alcohol and lack of sleep taking its toll on me and I staggered down to reception and got the laptop, I logged on and opened up Skype ... and Password ... errrr... (Martin had assured us it would automatically log in to Skype). Someone had logged him out and now I couldn´t get in ...ARSE! After a couple of attempts restarting the laptop etc.
Midday came, and this time I was able to get out of bed without any problems, got showered and dressed and met everyone in reception. We were all sat there staring under the inflatable Santa at all the presents, trying to work out which present was for who and what they all were. I got my present, and opened it ... a Nicaragua t-shirt ... cool... thank you Secret Santa!
Present opening over we made our way into town to head of to spend an afternoon on the beach.
We all jumped in the back of a truck, and imagined what a site we must have looked to the locals; we were in an open backed truck with bars. After a very bumpy ride down a dirt trackwe eventually made it to the beach, we set down our towels, applied our sun tan creams and prepared to go for a paddle/swim in the sea. Anna, Eliza and Anegthe went first, after a few minutes they came out again; Anna had been badly stung by a Jellyfish that they hadn´t seen to be able to avoid. AH! Maybe I won´t go seimming in the sea.
Thus followed a lazy afternoon basking in the sunlight on the beach on Christmas Day; i got active enough to go for a little walk over the rocks to take a few photos and see round to the next bay.
