On Sunday, we both woke up with headaches, probably the heat, so we took some painkillers and went back to bed until 9:30 when we went for breakfast. The food here is very good -- especially the freshly-made omelets.
Most of the day was spent just relaxing. Another hour in the pool, a couple of cocktails. Lunch in the restaurant, then back to the room for an afternoon siesta. At 7, we all gathered in the foyer and caught taxis to the resort where Richard and Maiko -- Juliette's brother and his fiancee, whose wedding was the following day -- were staying (the Four Seasons). We met them at the restaurant there, which had open sides so we had an ocean breeze to keep us cool. Out west of the Indian Ocean, a thunderstorm provided a light show. The food was great (as you'd expect given the cost!), and Andrew introduced me to Bintang beers (really just rebranded Heineken Pilsners).
When we got back to the hotel, we were once again exhausted so straight to bed.
