This is my feet on a sun lounge overlooking the snorkelling reef.
Funny story about the nail polish, I had the same polish on my nails and while I was snorkelling, a big chunk of it came off and was floating in front of me in the water. Now the fish on the reef are super tame and they come really close. (Close enough to make me squeal a couple of times and for my mask and snorkel to fill with salt water.) They thought the flake of shiny polish was food for them and I had to quickly grab it and stuff it down my swim top. Those fish were not impressed and the big ones swarmed around me like I was a bully. It was kind of scary. I got out of the water real fast after that. I fed them some bread the next morning after breakfast, so there didn't seem to be any hard feelings when I got back in that next afternoon.
Close up of the toes! I know they are nasty. I had blisters from walking everywhere. I promise you won't be subjected to my feet and freakishly long toes again anytime soon, if ever again. I used Zoya Charla because it seemed fitting to have mermaid toes at the beach.
These are some of the children from the local villiage. They love being photographed and then looking at themselves in the camera screens.
The children were super cute. They live mostly in huts like this one below.
