Hello, all.
We had no internet on the island, as expected.
The ferry trip was a speedy boat over.
We made friends with a family from Kuala Lumpur, who were Malay. Most people were Chinese, and, as we discovered, from mainland China. Evidently the tourist co has a special plan. So, when we were welcomed to the island and given instructions, we and the Muslim family were ushered to the English-speaking table, and everything else was in Chinese. Most were on packages, 3-4 days, with boat trips to the neighboring islands, intro to diving, etc. and all meals. Ours was a room and breakfast only package - and we were glad, for we really didn't need a big Chinese buffet every evening.
Of course we quickly got into our swim suits and snorkeled right off the shore. And while the coral was not the best, the variety of fish was AMAZING.
Yes, Jean was in bed just about 9 pm every night 😊
