Failures and annoyances subsequently include crashing a motorbike (and suffering some ensuing deep scraps), combating constant allergies, and adapting to the local mosque’s loudspeaker blaring a “call to prayer” every morning around 5:15.

However, all things considered I am relishing the opportunity to enjoy this new place, and the peaceful surf still carries on.
