The wait...

Traffic here is an adventure.  They may have lines on the roads and signs but they don't follow them.  It is interesting to watch.  How there are not more wrecks is beyond me.  One of the other frustrations are how long the lights are.  They have timers on them to let you know when they are going to change.  This one started at 160.  Then the green light was only green for 35 seconds.  It also has a timer on it to let you know when it will end.  Bring a book to read between lights.  If you hit one red one you will hit them all!

Yacht Club

These are from the Half Moon Beach Yacht Club.  They are from the larger boats and power boats side.  This is a really nice beach which also has a restaurant at it.

Coming from the States this is an unusual site. They eat a lot of camel and goat over here and you see them hanging unrefrigerated in windows.


These are from Half Moon Bay's.  They were having a boat race.  They also have some massive jellyfish!


We have a few lizards that are hanging around the yard.  Here is one of them.
