Somewhere Under The Rainbow

 November 2014 – Part 2

It was a bit late when I got back to Bocas Town so I used it as an excuse to stay in town for the night. The next day I met up with my new CouchSurfers: Nina and Fizz from the UK.

I’ve been on the island for almost 6 months now. I know that there is bio-luminescence in the water around the boat dock, but what I didn’t know until Nina and Fizz showed up and we went for a midnight dip, that if you swim in it at night YOU SPARKLE LIKE A GODDAMN WIZARD.


This is something I will have to do a lot more of!

The weather wasn’t the best for my fellow Angled-Saxons, but we played a lot of cards and managed a trip out to Dolphin Bay. And, at the end of the day, there’s always booze HURRAH!

The following Sunday I headed over to Rana for Sunday drinks, my mate Jack was there with a couple of friends, Nikki and Ashley, from California.

After Rana, Jack and the girls invited me along to the utterly brilliant Blue Coconut bar on Solarte island.

On the evening of the 24th of November I took this photo of the moon rising in the east. It’s not an eclipse, that’s the old moon being held in the new moon’s arms.

Damn this place is BEAUTIFUL

A few days later I went to Red Frog to meet up with CouchSurfers Ben and Jazzy from Austria and New York City respectively. I also met up with friend-of-a-friend Vyara from the UK. On the way back we were treated to an epic rainbow. It’s been raining like hell this month, but these moments make up for it.

Afterwards, we travelled to Bocas Town for a night out on the tiles. 

Before returning to Jinja to chill the remainder of the month away.

Lovely green happy Jinja.
