Most humbling thing I’ve ever done, can’t wait to return!

Lots of mosquito repellent and as much stuff for the kids as you can carry!

£30 a week was enough for my food then buying the odd souvenirs!

Would go in October because I found it a little cooler, as the first couple of weeks I was there in September was still unbelievably hot!
