Day Off

So yesterday we had the day off of work because of Constitution Day here in Palau (nothing happened).

I woke up nice and late and decided to take a long walk through the island of Meyuns which ended at the really expensive resort: Palau Pacific Resort (PPR). (It is where Dr. Hills took us to dinner and where the open water swim was)

The wind was really strong yesterday becasue a storm was moving in. It was really cool walking alone through the Palauan Neighborhood while the wind was howling. As always tons of people offered me rides to where I was going, but I insisted on walking. I got to the resort and got a hair cut from the salon there. Now it was only a 10 dollar haircut, so I expected a quick buzz, but no. It was the real deal of shampoo, a 40 minute detailed cut (which is NOT what I am used to). But it was a pretty good hair cut (and only 10 dollars!!!!!!).

Afterwords, I asked the lifeguard where there was a nature trail, and he pointed me in the right direction. (My boss mentioned it to me). So I took the hour long trek through beach->jungle->rocks. It was not that intense, but it was relaxing. When I reached the top of the hill I saw the storm was making its way in. In Palau you can actually see the rain in the distance and see it coming. I decided it was time to head back.

When I got back I spent the rest of the day watching more tv shows on my laptop and relaxing...ahhh

This weekend it Kate's Birthday so we are taking a trip to Carp Island, a private resort island filled with nothing but cottages and hammocks. Then Sunday is another scuba day with Mr. Song. Kinda excited!
