We've been made to feel very special the last couple of days. Our teachers have given us all gifts to say thank you for coming and made us try on traditional gowns and did our hair for us. It was so hot in their clothes, I don't know how they do it.
We've spent the weekend at the resort which met our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed talking over very leisurely meals, drinking free wine and beers and relaxing in the pool.
We went banana boating in the afternoon and on the first fall I got so winded I would have drowned if I didn't have a life vest on. From then on I really feared falling. It was heaps good.
At dinner on the last night at the resort the staff made a special cake for us and gave us a really nice night. There was live music on the beach and the staff gave us quite a few free drinks.
Now we're pretty much just waiting to leave. We saw Jaime off to the airport today and the rest of us leave for Male at 9:30 tomorrow morning. Most of us are on the same flight to Singapore so we can post phone our goodbyes. Our flight doesn't leave until 11:30pm so we have the whole day to see Male then we'll probably just scope out the coolest place in the airport and play the waiting game.
A few of us have our bath robes from the resort and we're pretty keen to wear them on the plane so if you happen to see 4 girls walking around Changi or Sydney airport in robes it'sprobably us.
I'm so keen to eat food that isn't rice, tuna or noodles!
