With ten people watching in the hut in front of the idyllic beach I set up my hammock. I fail – the ropes are too close, then too far. Everyone laughs. Matthew, the great two left-handed adventurer laughs it off. Well, tries to.

Then Clement pulls out the photo of me and Will bare chested together on the tiny Equator monument. Will bans that one from making its way on the internet. You’ll just have to imagine how intimate it looked on such a tiny concrete block.

Today was equator day, Clement’s 35000km day, and a day of coconuts and the most amazing beaches. Our resting point tonight couldn’t be more beautiful – a bay with a big white, sandy beach, lined with coconut trees and crystal-clear, mirror-calm waters. We watched the sunset sitting in the water as the clouds merged and transformed before our eyes.

What a warm welcome in the village. Again, we had an evening with amazing food and people. Thank-you!

We passed flat plains with villages, and in between amazingly steep forays into the mountains above sandy white beaches. Today was a day of swimming, hello mister villages and a spectacular lunch in a little village.

We were stopped near a sandy white beach for photos, and then invited back to the village. After a quick swim, we found ourselves dining on cooked jackfruit, pumpkin in coconut milk and sardines. Very ‘enak’ (delicious).

We’re staying in a little house next to a beautiful beach – still waters reflecting the orange sunset rays. Coming out of the water is a feast for the mosquitos and sandflies. We were chased under the mosquito net where we are safe.. ☺
