Another day in paradise, how could I ever complain. For the first time since our arrival, I slept great, despite the heat and the moist air.

Today was our first full day of free time on land. The possibilities were endless on this island of dreams. We decided that a hike to the Annandale Waterfalls sounded like a great plan, but before this we had to go to the tourist office, since none of us had cell service and we had to get information on how to get to the waterfalls. At 11 we took the first boat to land (Gunilla is at anchor, so we have to take the tender to the port) and then made a game plan. Me and Ida go to the tourist office with Valter and William while Olivia, Lea and Erik go to the bank to take out cash. On our way to the tourist office Ida and I interviewed some people for the religion assignment, two flies with one rock (is that how you say it?) and then went on with our mission.

After getting information at the tourist desk, we met up with the others and decided to go to the fruit market to get some proviant for the long day we had ahead of us. Somewhere in the jungle of fruit-stands Olivia and I lost the others, so we decided to go to the bus terminal, thinking that the others had already left. We hopped on a bus and asked the driver to drop us at the Annandale Waterfalls. In my opinion the bus system in Grenada is one of the best I’ve ever seen. The buses have different numbers for different areas, and there are no fixed bus stops. You just knock on the inside of the door when you want to hop off and the bus abruptly stops. And no matter where you go it cost between one and two American dollars.

Anyhow, we arrived at the waterfalls after a bumpy ride and hopped right in the cooling water. Not much later some of the other classmates joined us and soon we had taken over the entire waterfall. We swam and tanned all day, and even saw some monkeys. Sometime in the afternoon a big part of the group wanted to go to the beach, so it ended up being just me, Olivia, William, William and Erik left. We hiked for a bit and then went back in to town to get something to eat. Right at the bus terminal we found a food stand that sold freshly fried tuna and bought some to bring as dinner to eat at the beach.

The evening was very pleasant with some snorkeling, eating good food, and hanging out with friends. Another day in paradise, how could I ever complain.
