Merry Christmas, one and all!
Hello all. I have been a bit on the lazy side recently, although I have been running and swimming and generally getting fit in the mornings. It's so nice just to be able to eat three meals a day again now that Ramadan's finished. So i'm now much more healthy, and looking as brown as a very very brown thing sitting on a log.
I have been doing a little bit of exploring, grazing my knee whilst swimming out to this island off one end of the beach. There's no people on it, but much to my surprise there are a bunch of monkeys on it, I think they were just as surprised as I was, coz they scarpered pretty sharpish. I have also been badly scarred by an overenthusiastic seafood fajita. It was sizzling a little too violently and managed to cover me with a waterfall of burning oil. (ok, so maybe that's a small exaggeration), apart from those two injuries and a couple of blisters, I'm coping quite well with the stress...
It's a bit of shame really, but apparently Scandinavians celebrate Christmas on the 24th, so unfortunately tonight i'm probably going to have to go out partying with a whole bunch of swedish girls. Don't you just hate that?
My spanish is coming along a little bit, but not too rapidly, and i'm trying to learn to swim properly, but at the moment I just get a mouthful of seawater after about two yards and start choking violently and laughing, which makes people look at me like i'm weird, which just isn't the case.
So, I hope everyone back home is having as good a time as I am, I hope you all get what you desire and deserve for christmas, and maybe this year it'll be a white one, who knows?
Thanks to all those who've left messages for me, please continue to do so, coz it makes me chuckle in net cafes, which makes the other users jealous :)
I have to go and rest some more, I have a busy days lounging to do.
