Did something rather unusual!  We ate at an Ethiopian restaurant for lunch.  Delicious.  Julie B can speak a little Ethiopian and made fast friends with the owner.

Then off to the Secret Lagoon, the best of the hot springs so far, very natural setting, and deeply relaxing.

I even did a session of Water Yoga (I think I may have a new career as a Water Yoga Instructor)..I only lasted about 15 minutes before I needed to stop, get out, get rehydrated and cool down.  the water was wonderfully warm and the day SUNNY!
