jenni was not ok with the air now working. luckly we didn't have to use this bag!
The plane ride was a bit rough because the air didn't work the entire flight. The view coming in was amazing though. Once we landed we headed out to find a taxi to take us to the water taxi place. we where staying on an island called  Bastimentos Island. Bastimentos is a very small island that is about a 10 min boat taxi ride from the main land. once we found a guy to get us to our little island we where off. it only cost 3 USD to get from the main island to Bastimentos Island. as a matter of fact i don't think we paid more than that for any boat taxi ride the entire time we where there. The boat taxi dropped us off right at our hostal where we were checked in and shown our room. you can either get a private room or a shared room. we chose to have our own room that cost about 20 USD. the view was amazing!! after we got settled in we headed into town. if you can even call it that. there is no street and no cars at all on bastimentos. there is only one side walk that goes through town that i would not say is more than 2 or 3 miles... if that. we found a cute little bar / restaurant where we drank, ate, and danced the night away. this place is amazing!
