24 June 2011:

After stringing more shell rings on the beach and catching up on writing trip notes, it was dinner time. I was surprised to find I was the only one here tonight! So much for that dance show that was supposed to be scheduled here. I used this opportunity to chat with the dad of the family that owns this place. Apparently, Awesome Adventures has quite a monopoly in this area and takes a huge cut, making it difficult for the individual family operators to make money. The good thing is that apparently, most of the supplies come from the forest and family gardens, so life isn't too hard.
