Last night I got eaten alive! Hannah remained untouched, at one point in the night i woke to get some repellant and there were at least 20 huge mosquitoes on the wall near my head! These thankfully don't carry malaria but are massive and painful!
Today I was 'helping' Hannah at work. Every morning the 12 horses needed for the week safari's have to have a good "run". This means that each rider holds onto another horse and they run round the sugar plantations. This was ok to start with since Hannah led two horses so I just had to hang onto the one I was sat on. However half way through this trot, canter, walk routine it felt like all the skin from my thighs had been removed and rubbed with vinegar! Was so painful. I took the pain, not much I could do but wince and wait for the end. Before we reached the end a tractor blocked our path and was a steep gully with only enough room for him. The lead guy turned his horse to face up the gully, this was the invite I needed, I did the same and before I knew it I was storming up this embankment crashing through trees and smashing over bushes, this was fun.
On our return Hannah told me we needed to go out again!! Thankfully this time we would only be walking, and not so far, although I'd have to tow a horse too!!
After this cowboy experience we had a light lunch, I had a snooze and fixed up a mosquito net for tonight.
We met the owners, Richard and Sarah also their two children Fin and Mouse. Sarah cook a roast chicken with all the trimmings, the first roast I'd had since England! It was amazing, after which I almost fell asleep on the sofa. Bed was beaconing.
