Morning Crisis: The gas ran out this morning, half way through boiling water for our morning cuppa –and on the day that it was my turn to have it bed too – typical! Thankfully the reception shop has a refill service which cost us only $11.
More surfing, this time I had to go in the old blue bikini with the snapped elastic. I put a vest over the top in an effort to hold everything in place – the nearest swimwear shop is in the next town along the coast, so baggy bottoms it is.
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins
