I loved this tiny street by our hotel, it was filled by money changer stores and locals selling coconut water, trying to hustle any way possible. It was quite the event taking these photos, kids and adults alike stopped whatever they were doing to watch, and cheer me on... I feel awkward when people watch me do things; I danced for many years but never invited anyone to my recitals, as I wouldn't be able to perform in front of them. I tried to see the funny side of things to be able to take these photos, I figured it would give them something to talk about for the day.
Later in the day I treated myself to some alcoholic beverages and we had a fantastic 3 course meal. Did I mention the amazing real freshly squeezed and blended pineapple juice with rum? Oh yeah that had me at hello...be mine.
