Testing my new camera

 

I took this photo last night of our apartment view with my new Olympus Tough TG-5 camera. So far it looks good, I bought it for our trip that is coming up soon. The photo is added from my mobile so the quality is not as good as it originally would have been. I started packing today and I must say it is not easy to pack a backpack for a 6 week long trip!

NY INVESTERING!

Igår kom det nye Olympus kameraet jeg bestilte for kun 2 dager siden, levert på døren fra Japan Foto.

Kamera er noe jeg bruker mye og kommer til å få masse bruk for til reisen vår om 2 ukers tid. Jeg har aldri hatt ett bra undervannskamera så jeg håper jeg blir fornøyd med dette med tanke på at det blir mye sol og bading, spesielt på Filippinene. Nå gjelder det bare å sette seg inn i innstillingene så jeg får mest mulig kvalitet ut av bildene. 

OLYMPUS Tough TG-5

Har dere erfaringer med dette kameraet? Tips og triks til å få flotte bilder?

 

AKUTT NØDVENDIG HJELP I MEXICO!

Som de fleste vet har det skjedd et forferdelig jordskjelv i Mexico som er det mest dødelige på over 30 år, hvor hundrevis av voksne, barn og dyr er omkommet. Det er fortsatt mennesker og dyr fanget i ruinene og de jobber på spreng for å få de ut. De trenger alle bidrag de kan få, og en liten sum betyr mye. Heldigvis har familien og våre venner der borte det bra, men det er mange som ikke har det!

 

Rescuers, firefighters, policemen, soldiers and volunteers remove rubble and debris from a flattened building in search of survivors.A rescuer pulls a dog out of the rubble during the search for survivors in Mexico City.

Redningsteamet Topos er en tverrfaglig gruppe opplært til å håndtere nasjonale og internasjonale katastrofer som nå jordskjelv. Håper dere kan sende et bidrag til disse fantastiske menneskene som er med å hjelpe. 

"Topos Tlaltelolco Rescue Brigade, AC" er en ideell sivilforening som består av frivillige som tilbyr redningstjenester, støtte og hjelp til alle i en sårbar situasjon.

DONER HER!

As most people know, there has been a terrible earthquake in Mexico that is the most deadly in over 30 years, where hundreds of adults, children and animals have died. There are still people and animals caught in the ruins and they are working extremely hard to get them out. They need all the contributions they can get, and a small amount means a lot. Fortunately our family and friends are fine but there are many people that are not!

 Rescue team Topos is an interdisciplinary group trained to deal with national and international disasters such as earthquakes.

I really hope you can contribute to these wonderful people who help the people in need.

VI REISER IGJEN! - NEW TRIP COMING UP!

Vi booket oss ferie hinndagen til drømme destinasjonene våre, Sri Lanka og Filippinene. Steike som vi gleder oss!

 

Vi starten ferden i Sri Lanka og skal reise rundt i landet. For å bare nevne noe av det vi planlegger er det safari, fjellturer, te-farmer, en av verdens fineste togturer, masse god currymat, osv! 

 

Fillippinene byr selvfølgelig på noen av verdens fineste strender og øyer. Vi har også planer om å reise rundt i dette landet vi nesten ikke vet noenting om! Lurer på om det kan toppe Mexico som står høyest på listen vår foreløbig.

 

We booked our vacation the other day to our dream destinations, Sri Lanka and the Philippines. 

We start the journey in Sri Lanka and will travel around the country. What we are planning to do is safari, mountain tours, tea farms, one of the world's finest train ride, eat loads of good curry, etc.
The Philippines offers some of the world's finest beaches and islands. We also planning to travel around this country we barely know anything about! We got loads of research to do! 

NEW APARTMENT

 

We are all settled in the new apartment and we feel blessed by waking up to this amazing view everyday. Cant`t wait until the weather gets warmer so I can tan all the time and buy furniture for the balcony.


 

Today's hike

We went mountain hiking for almost 5 hours today in sun, snow and rain. Bergen is full of great places to hike and today we went to many places included one of the most famous mountain called Rundemanen, there was no sight at the top because of all the fog and snowstorm. Now we are all dead, hungry and cold! We will def sleep good tonight. Just digged in to a huge taco mom made us. Have a nice weekend!

Auschwitz

Når jeg først skulle til Polen er jeg nesten pålagt å besøke konsentrasjonsleiren. Det er viktig at vi vet om grusomhetene som skjedde her fra 1943 til 1945 og ikke minst minne de omkomme og overlevende. Det var veldig sterke inntrykk noe vi var forberedt på, men å være på det samme stedet alt skjedde er helt annerledes enn  som å lese om det. Vi hadde en guidet tur på ca 7 timer fra Krakow hvor vi ble hentet i buss på hotellet. Det var flere steder som vi ikke tok bilder i respekt for de omkomme, som feks av gasskammeret, div rom og tonnevis med ekte menneskehår. 

Jobb vil sette deg fri er det som står på porten til inngangen, noe som ikke stemte i det hele tatt. Minst 1,1 millioner kom aldri tilbake fra denne leiren.


De dekket til mange av vinduene så andre fanger ikke kunne se all grusomheten som medfanger ble utsatt for.


Krematoriet, her ble mennesker brent levende.

Gasskammeret og Krematoriet. Her ble mennesker gasset med Zyklon - B en type insektgift. Det ble brukt over 20 tonn med dette på ett år. Det ble funnet bokser av dette som var med på å bevise hva nazistene gjorde. Etter de ble gasset ble de fraktet inn til krematoriet. Tidligere var gasskammeret i kjelleren i byggene men det var enklere å frakte likene når gasskammeret var i sammme bygg og etasje som krematoriet. 



The execution wall, tusenvis av Jøder, sigøynere osv ble henrettet  foran denne murveggen. Jødiske flagget henger over.



Noen av ofrene levde ikke en dag engang, noen et par dager i de værste omstendigheter. De plukket ut de som så mest sprek ut og som var egnet for arbeid. De som ikke var dette ble sendt rett til gasskammeret, spesielt eldre, barn og gravide. 

Veggene full av bilder av mennesker som ble henrettet eller døde av sult, sykdom,selvmord osv.

En grusom SS- doktor med navn Josef Mengele eksperimenterte på fangene med de mest grusomme måter. Han var spesielt opptatt av tvillinger. Han klarte å flykte og levde livet videre i Argentina og døde av hjerneslag i Brasil. Han ble aldri tatt for det han gjorde. 







Eiendelene til fangene som nazistene tok ifra de. Mye ble sendt og solgt til Tyskland.

Mange av skoene til de som ble henrettet. Det var også tonn med menneskehår vi fikk se på museumet. Dette ble brukt til å lage materiale. 


Alle skrev navnene sine på koffertene, alle eiendelene ble de fratatt. De trakk også ut tennene på ofrene for å smelte sammen gullet og selge det videre. 


Noen av brillene til de som var fanget eller drept.

Jøder ankommer fra Ungarn. 

Aske fra flere av de omkomme.

Rett utenfor leiren bodde en SS offiser med sin familie i et stort fint hus med hage der de lekte mens på andre siden ble tusenvis av mennesker drept og torturert. Denne offiseren ble til slutt fanget under frigjøringen. Han ble hengt i leiren med utsikt over sitt eget hus. 

De var flere fanger som tok sitt eget liv med å hoppe på de elektriske gjerdene. Var det noen som prøvde å rømme ble de skutt og drept.

POLAND PART 2

 

Here are a bit more photos of attractions and restaurants we visited in Krakow.

 

 

This restaurant is called Nova Restro Bar. A restaurant with delicous food and drinks located in Kazimierz. I tasted two different shrimp dishes the times we went. They also have a really good drink called cucumber Mojito, Krakow really impressed me drinkwise!

 



Street art in Podgorze area.

The famous bridge called Kładka Ojca Bernatka (Footbridge).

 

There are hundreds of padlocks attached to the bridge. These are put there by lovers who then throw the keys into the river.

You can also see hanging sculptures




 



St. Joseph's Church - is a historic Roman Catholic church in Podgórze district of Kraków,

Indian is our favourite food so we could`t resist and thank god! This place was just amazing, we had Chicken curry, butter chicken and nan bread. A small restaurant called Taste of India walking distance from our hotel. If you want indian food in Krakow you have to go here. You wont regret it!

We went to this bar twice because the music was amazing (reggeaton) haha and I found a really good  gin drink with basillikum as you can see on the photo




Le Grande Mamma, an italian restaurant located in town square with delicous chilli mussels. The other dishes looked amazing. 
 






Town square.

 

In my next blogpost I will write and show you how my experience in the consetration camp was. Prepare for some disturbing photos. 

 

POLAND TRIP!

We just got back from Poland the other day after spending 5 days there, and we had an amazing time. It is both our first time visiting the country and we decided to go to Krakow because I really wanted to learn more about the history of the Jews, and the horrific things they went trough that we can not forget about. I will write more about it in my next post and my experience in Auschwitz.


We stayed in a boutique hotel named Oberża Sąsiadów, located in the Jewish ghetto that was created by the nazi germans during the war. The district of the place is called Kazimirez, a popular place of history, bars and restaurants. It is also walking distance to the city center. We couldn`t asked for a better location to stay in. Most of the buildings in Kazimierz are in their original state and condition, they keep a sertant charm and definitely makes you feel like you travelling back in time. Each and every building tells and keeps a story of a strong and resiliant group of people who fought for survival.  

The room was pretty nice, we had a balcony, big bed, nice bathroom and there were friendly people working there that helped us out if we needed something. 

Our hotel was from the 18th century.


Tanning in our hotel balcony with a polish beer. Beers and sodas are actually cheaper than water!



When you visit a new country you just have to try the traditional food. We fell in love with Pierogi and had it many times. Pierogi is also known as varenyky, are filled dumplings of Eastern European origin. They are made by wrapping pockets of unleavened dough around a savory or sweet filling and cooking them in boiling water. It is also very good fried. I think the most popular Pierogi in Krakow was the kind filled with cottage cheese and potatos. We really liked those and the ones with meat as you can see below.


We went to a great bar/restaurant called Gospoda Koko in the city center as we were recommended from locals. Our favorite Pierogis was from this place. So if you visit Krakow eat Pierogi here! They also have the same restaurant in Kazimierz.


This Pierogi is from another restaurant in the main square filled with cheese and potatos. 

 

We had some sunny and some rainy days in Krakow, but you can def tell the spring is on its way.



I was searching randomly on instagram of places to eat in Krakow and I saw the craziest pancake photos and we just had to go there. 

The name of the restaurant is called  Mr. Pancake.

The restaurant was so nice and they had alot of variety of pancakes, burgers, drinks and alot more. 

We had cookie, icecream, maltesers, chocolate pancakes. I could not move after, we only managed to eat half, it was way to much sugar that I had to go straight to the hotel bed.

But if you have a craving for something sweet you must go here, we do not regret it and would go back, but next time share one! 

 

 

Our favorite bar was no doubt called Królicze Oczy, a local pub with the most amazing cocktail Lichi mojito. My favorite drink of all times!  

The bar is located in Kazimierz. They also had the most amazing apple cake  we have ever tried.

The bar has its own charm as you can see below.

 






 

Typical looking buildings.

Stay tuned for more about our trip in Poland, coming soon! 

 

 

Arrived in Poland

Da er vi kommet oss til rette på hotellet vårt i Krakow og er super fornøyd. Fint og rent rom og ikke minst en koselig balkong vi kan sole oss litt på. Været er bare døds deilig sammenlignet med regnfulle Bergen. Her var det 18 grader igår på dagtid. Vi bor i område Kazimierz som er et populært sted for restauranter og barer. Hotellet vårt er også gangavstand til gamlebyen. Vi var innom der igår og det er bare så fint! Vi gleder oss til å utforske mer. Vi har allerede fått prøvd ut masse typer øl samt en tradisjonell polsk rett som heter Pierogi (dumplings) vi smakte noen som var fyllt med kjøtt, poteter og ost. De har mange forskjellige typer og gjett om vi skal prøve fler!

Idag er planen å begynne med frokost på et pannekakehus, følg med!

 

Now we are settled in our hotel in Krakow and are very pleased. Nice and clean room with a cozy balcony we can sunbathe on. The weather is amazing compared to rainy Bergen. Here it was 18 degrees yesterday during the daytime. We live in the Kazimierz area which is a popular place for restaurants and bars. Our hotel is also walking distance to the old town. We were there yesterday and it's just so nice! We look forward to exploring more. We have already tried out lots of types of beer as well as a traditional Polish dish called Pierogi (dumplings) we tasted some that was filled with meat, potatoes and cheese. They have many different types and I guess we are going to try more! Today is the plan to start with breakfast at a pancake house

 

Spontantur på tirsdag!

Jeg kunne rett og slett ikke dy meg i å ikke kjøpe flybilletter til Polen på tirsdag. Begge oss har fri so why not! Vi sparer jo ikke egentlig til ting utenom reiser. Vi har aldri vært i Polen før så vi gleder oss veldig. Vi drar til Krakow og skal bo i sentrum, jeg har booket hotel etter anbefaling av polske venner av oss der nede. Jeg har kjempelyst å dra til Auschwitz som jeg synes jeg nesten må oppleve når jeg først er der. Følg med på bloggen og insta på turen vår!

CRETE!

Back from family vacay in Crete. We stayed in Rethymnon, one hour from Chania. This is a super charter place, but you can find some nice places. One week is more than enough tho.

TULUM AND PLAYA DEL CARMEN

TULUM

Tulum is one of our favorite places to stay in Mexico, they have the best private beaches, restaurants and it is not crowded with tourists. Only 40 minutes drive from Playa Del Carmen.

Our top places in Tulum is:

Papaya Playa Project a hotel/beachclub to chill, eat and drink all day. You get great sunbeds if you eat and drink for more than 500 pesos. 

Coco Tulum is a beachclub/hotel with great smoothies and drinks and probably the pretties beach that I have blogged about before. 

Our fav place to have tacos is at the beach near Coco Tulum, called La Eufemia. They have the best fried shrimp and fish tacos for a good price.





The Papaya Playa restaurant have also delicous tacos I eat everytime I go there. Modelo Especial is my favorite mexican beer, soo good!

From Papayas restaurant you get the beautiful sunset view from the beach/restaurant. We always stay until it gets dark.

 

Just a few minutes drive from Papaya Playa Project you will find the best taco restaurant in Tulum called La Eufemia. The restaurant is actually named after the owner`s dog. The place was pretty new last time we were there and it has grown alot, it was full of people! The photos is of fried fish tacos with chipotle sauce and cabbage. Totally delicous!

This year we discovered this great street stand where you can buy traditional Mexican Tamales. We both can handle pretty spicy habanero salsa but this one supriced us, haha! Soo spicy! I dont remember the name of the food stand, but I guess you can find pretty good tamales everywhere in Tulum. This one was close to hostel Che Babel.




 


 

PLAYA DEL CARMEN

If you are a person that likes the nightlife, you should go to Playa Del Carmen. For me it has become to touristic since I came here the first time. I only stay in Playa Del Carmen to visit family/friends and my fav bars and restaurants. It is also not far from the airport, about 35-40 minutes with no traffic. 

 




The beach it pretty packed so I always go where it is less people. This place is called Canibal Royal, beachclub with good food, drinks and sunbeds. The drink in front of me is a Mezcal bowl with fruits, yummi!



The fish tacos and ceviche in Canibal Royal taste amazing, you should def try it!



This rooftop is at a hotel named Be - Playa. A place with very good smoothies, cocktails and sushi. We always come here to relax and get away from the crowded places. 





If you have any questions about travelling in the places I`ve been blogging about just leave a comment below. 

BACALAR

Denne turen bestemte vi oss for å dra til Bacalar, en landsby men de nydeligste farger i sine kjente laguner. Det ser ut som Maldivene bare hundre ganger billigere. Bacalar er ca 4 times kjøretur unna Playa Del Carmen og 1 time unna Mahahual.  Vi bodde på et hostel som het The Yak Lake House som ligger rett ved lagunen og gangavstand til byen, prisen er ca 400 kr natten for privat rom med sjøutsikt inkludert grei frokost. Vi dro også på en 3 timers båt tur rett utenfor hostelet og betalte bare 100kr hver med guide som tok oss til forskjellige cenoter og fantastiske laguner. Ingen tvil at dette er en av de fineste stedene jeg har besøkt.


This Mexico trip we decided to visit new places we had never been to before, Edward has always talked about how amazing Bacalar is . Bacalar is a small town with the most gorgeous lagoons that looks like the Maldives, just a hundred times cheaper. Bacalar is a 4 hour drive from Playa Del Carmen, and 1 hour away from Mahanual. We stayed at a hostel named The Yak Lake House, that is located right with the lagoon and walking distance from town. The price for one night is around 900 pesos for private room, included breakfast and lagoon view. Right outside the hostel you can go on a 3 hour boat tour for only 200 pesos per person. The guide took us to different cenotes and fantastic lagoons. Just take a look at the photo below, no doubt this is one of the prettiest places ive visited.


Hostel view


The hostel we stayed in (white building) our room was on the top to the left





The boat ride where we started in front of our hostel. 











This gorgeous place is called Canal De Los Piratas, my fav place in Bacalar. This was a part of the boat tour.




















With our friends from Mexico City




Room view of the lagoon


Hotel room. The hotel is actually walking distance from the castle St. Felipe and other good restaurants with local food. 


I guess this is one of the most popular places in Bacalar. This is a hotel named Los Aluxes. They have a great view and the lagoon to swim in. 



This is a cenote called Cenote Azul, a huge cenote where you can swim in Bacalar. You only have to pay 10 pesos to get in! Try the mexican food in their restaurant, taste delicous and not over priced.

If you ever go to the Riviera Maya, you should visit Bacalar for 2 or 3 days. It is a very relaxed and virgin place that is breathtaking. 

Teotihuacán - MEXICO CITY

 

Ca en times kjøretur fra Mexico City finner du de kjente pyramidene i Teotihuacan som betyr gudernes sted på Aztec. Jeg har vært der en gang tidligere og måtte tilbake for det er helt fantastisk. Man bør dra innom her hvis man først skal til Mexico City. Vi gikk opp den såkalte Solpyramiden som ble bygt 150 år f.kr og utsikten sier seg selv på bildene. Pyramiden ser høyrere ut enn den er, den er faktisk bare 65,5meter høy. Det var ikke så veldig lett å ta bilder for denne dagen var den sykt sterk vind på toppen, hehe! Prisen for å komme inn koster ca 50kr og da kan man være der så lenge man vil.


About an hour drive from Mexico City is the famous pyramides located in Teotihuacan, that means the god`s place on Aztec. I have been there once before and just had to go back because it is just amazing. You should go here if you first go to Mexico City. We walked up the sunpyramid that was built 150 years b.c and the view just tells itself on the photos. The pyramid looks higher than it really is, it is just 65,5 meters high. It was not that easy to take photos this day because of the crazy wind on the top, hehe! The price to get in is around 100 pesos and you can stay there as long as you want.

 




































 

New trip next week!

I am super exited for a new trip next week.

Mexico is the first destination of 2017, and hopefully many more to come! I will start in Mexico City, then continue in the Rivera Maya

You can join me on snapchat and instagram to stay on board!

Home sweet home!

We have been home for about 2 weeks now, and we both got the worst flu ever the day we arrived to our home. We have been in bed all the time our first week at home. We are now feeling alot better and I went to the gym for the first time today. Christmas is coming up so we are exited about that, I also finished all the presents. I can finally publish the better quality photos from our trip so check out my upcoming posts!

 

Cartagena castle

Yesterday we visited the San Felipe castle here in Cartagena. On the top you get a killer view over the new and old town in Cartagena.

The castle is walking distance from the center, and you have to pay a fee to get in. 

We just got into our new hotel with an amazing view. Only 200kr a night with breakfast. We love the new area and we still havent spotted any tourists yet, meaning cheaper areas to eat and drink.

Colombian breakfast

Her er gatematen ti ganger billigere enn restauranter, ikke minst like bra. Vi har spist empanadas hver dag siden vi kom og vi elsker det. De har med både kylling, kjøtt,fisk, ost, Hawaiana osv. Favoritt empanadasene våre så langt er på denne plassen. En mann som står her  hver dag utenfor Plaza De La Trinidad i Getsemani. Men vær kjapp de forsvinner fort!

 

Here the street food is ten times cheaper than the restaurants. We have eaten empanadas every day since we arrived and we love it. They have them with chicken, meat, fish, cheese, Hawaiana etc. Our favorite empanadasas are so far on this place. The man in the backround is standing here every day outside Plaza De La Trinidad in Getsemani. (Exept saturdays and sundays) PS ! Go early, they run out pretty quick because they are super delicous!

Vakre historiske kirken og travle torget og med gode valg av restauranter og barer rundt

 

The beautiful historic church and busy square with good choices of restaurants and bars around

Church of the holy trinity

Måtte jo selvfølgelig prøve fersk presset juice til frokost idag, nam!

 

Of course we had to try the freshly squeezed juice for lunch located in Plaza De La Trinidad

Ikke en eneste gate som ikke er fasinerende. Så mye fine farger, bygninger og blomster

 

Not a single street that is not fascinating. 

Update fra Colombia

Igår kveld begynte det å bøtte ned med regn her, det endte med lekkasje på rommet og ingen funksjon i aircondition. Vi har nå byttet hotell,for 200kr ekstra har vi dobbelt så stort rom, skikkelig aircondition og takterasse. Bilder av uteområdene kommer etterhvert.

Nå kjøler vi oss ned på rommet før vi skal utforske byen mer. Vi spiste foresten de beste kjøtt og kylling empanadas til frokost Idag. 5 stk for 18kr. Gatematen her smaker helt konge! Under ser dere noen bilder jeg tok av gatene idag, så mange fine farger!

Last night it started to poor down with rain here, it ended with a leak in the hotel room and no air conditioning. We have now changed hotel for 200kr extra. Now we have twice the size of the room, properly air conditioned and roof terrace. The hotel is named Friend`s to be. 

We ate the best meat and chicken empanadas for lunch today. 5 pcs for 18kr.

Below you see some pictures I took of the streets today, so many nice colors!

Our room in the second floor

 

Colombia

We arrived yesterday to Cartagena. The city was full of people celebrating the independence day. We are staying in a nice area called Getsemani. The streets here are beautiful! We are going to explore more today, the temperature here is so hot! 32 degrees now, so we are having a hour break in the AC. Check out photos below

Foam and fireworks everywhere!

Delicous empanadas

Had 2 amazing weeks in Bahamas,now its time for some hours in Florida before Colombia tomorrow. Below you wil see some photos from the last days in Bahamas.

Morning tan

Today it is such a hot and nice day. This morning we took some cool photos, better quality in my Canon camera tho. I am blogging from my sunbed in Bahamas. The time is 12pm now and we are gonna grab some lunch soon to get a little break from the sun. Later we are going to town to eat some seafood, yum!

 

Local Bahamian food

On thursday we went to local Bahamian places here in Nassau with a couple we actually met on the plane from Cuba. They took us around to have some food and drinks. We tried raw Conch salad for our first time and it taste even better than fried! Conch is a type of shellfish everyone eat here. They also put ghost pepper in it so it was super spicy. We ate fried Craw fish aswell and it tasted better than lobster!! I also had my first gin drink and I hate gin, but this one was actually really good. The drink is called Sky Juice

This is Conch, the most common shellfish to eat here

Our friend that took us around. We met him on the plane from Cuba

Fresh made Conch salad

The Bahamians are really friendly and happy people. They are very helpful and we got picked up twice from the road of people giving us a lift. We met these fun students and had a good laugh!

Compass point

A short walk on the beach from our hotel you can find another hotel called Compass point. The other day we went there for some food and drinks. Look at the beautiful colors, we are in love with the Bahamas!

Fried calamari & mojito

Sky juice, a famous drink here that I love! It is mixed with condensed milk, gin and coconut water

Fresh fished red snapper. This was one portion and more than enough for 2 people.

Morning swim

Today we woke up early to swim at the beach, no people and the sea temperature is perfect. We took some pretty cool photos. Check out below

Its 11 am now and soon a beachparty are starting here.

Sunset

Just checked in to our new place in Bahamas. We are staying on the beach in a huge old school suite in Nirvana Beach bar (they have rooms for rent). The prices here is pretty steep, but i guess thats Bahamas. 

The beach and sunset here is just amazing. We are staying here until we continue our trip to Colombia. Stay tuned

Bahamas

We are now finally in Bahamas Nassau and it is just like the photos you see. Real paradise. I got a pretty good tan today. We went to a beach called Love beach, not overcrowded but just chilll and nice. Only 15 minutes from the airport.

We went to a beach called Love beach. Gorgeous view and ocean. And yes that is all real seashell you see on the photo

We had a lovely dinner at the Compass point hotel, walking distance from Love Beach. I tried for the first time a famous Bahamian dish called Conch a type of shelfish like the shells on the beach photo. It tasted pretty good. Had it fried, with lime,lemon, beans and rice

Tomorrow we will explore more of the island.
