22 June 2011:

After returning, I spent some more time snorkelling and relaxing. I decided that fins was not for me, as I ended up with some horrible blisters and raw patches on my feet from using them, and I am able to get around fine without them. I also ended up with a mysteriously swollen infected finger, and found that around here, many people, including the tourists, had mysterious infections and skin problems. In fact, these issues seemed quite common in the islands - I guess the environment isn't as clean as in the first world.
