It's hammock time... Day 55

Today was a really chill day, I woke up at half six (read 6:30am) after a surprisingly restful nights sleep, even though the roosters were being obnoxious. We had porridge (slimy-er oatmeal) and toast with peanut butter. We then said farewell to 4 of our members, including a possible Olympic swimmer for the 2008 Estonian swim team (100 Breast Stroke). I took a great shower today, it is surprisingly effective, even though it is only a bucket with a spigot attachment. I used the coconut soap that I purchased in Nadi. It may be the creamiest soap ever made, really good stuff… and it’s entirely eco-friendly. I spent the day chasing around Jacob, while his dad was snorkeling. It was fun getting to know the little guy… seeing as how he fell asleep in my lap last night after dinner. I ended up taking a nap in one of the hammocks, which was marvelous. Then I popped into the sea for a few minutes to cool off and take some pictures of the island. We had fried dough for afternoon tea, which was really good. Speaking of afternoon tea, we eat like hobbits here, five meals a day: Breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and supper. Crazy stuff. After the meal, I went into the bure with the chief and her husband, Lavinia and Steffen. A while later, Emily came into the bure and kidnapped me for some grog in the worker’s village. It did affect me a little bit tonight, I just felt like I was moving a little bit slower than usual. I did, however, completely forget my shoes when I walked back to the bure. I found out later that almost everyone forgot their shoes…
