Last weekend, we decided to go to the beach! It was super complicated to get there at first- involving multiple bus transfers and asking a policeman for directions. Everything was really sketchy, but then we figured out that for only $100 we could rent a van for the entire day, complete with a driver and gas! Crazy.
We gained entry to the beach via a resort type thing, which cost about $15 including lunch (ah-mazing fish fillet!). The black sand beach was beautiful, and the warm ocean waves felt amazing until we noticed this guy running around collecting these little crab things as the waves rolled in and out. We had to have a security guard from the hotel out at the beach with us so we spent most of our time at the pool, lathering on sunscreen, laying out, swimming, and drinking not nearly enough water. Much needed vacation!
