Now for the REAL rest and relaxation! We had a late start to the day and the only item on the agenda was to head to Rabbit Island where there is not much to do aside from lay on the beach or get a massage. We hopped on a tuk-tuk to head down to catch a boat to Rabbit Island for the day.
It took about 20 minutes to boat across to the tiny little island, which featured a beautiful beach, a few eateries and watering holes, and cute little bungalows if you wanted to stay the night.
We all lazed around the beach and had a massage at our own pace. Sandra, Cathy, and I chose the traditional Khmer massage which came with a “strong” warning, while Todd and Scott decided on an aloe vera massage – which also turned out to be fairly high pressure. The day gave everyone a good opportunity to really unwind, which is just what we needed to get ready for one more week of work on another latrine.
