The sun is out


“Here comes the sun,
here comes the sun,
du du du du…
and I say… ”

Moonson season is here and the whole Asia Pacific is affected. Early morning showers kept me from my morning run today but compensated with loads of running around and carrying a ton of stuff.

The sea was really choppy. Almost made me throw up. After an hour being battered by the waves and almost giving in to the nausea, we docked in Bintan. As soon as my feet planted on solid unmoveable land mass, my head stopped spinning. But caught a headache soon after wodering if it was phychological. It must have been. Otherwise I realized that Bintan Ferry terminal never changed since the last time I was here. It was 7 years ago.

GMT +7 sets us back an Hour earlier. So we arrived at exactly the same time we left. The bad thing check-in time is 4 hours away.

Arrived at the hotel with three and a half hours to kill. Wet. Hungry. Headache. Thank God for WiFi. (wrote this on my iPhone) ok ok, thank God for iPhones. As soon as there was a break in the weather; while still gulping* down 2 chicken sandwiches. I headed out to the beach.

Am glad the heavens decided to ease up a little and let this puny living being have a chance with the sea.
