We are at Misima and tonight we are going out for dinner at the Misima guest house.
Earlier we went up to the Skull cave with a lady named Joyce. We got to ride up to the cave in the back of a truck!! (Otherwise we would've had to walk for an hour). Dad said there was 40-60 air conditioning (which means it works better at 60 k's an hour then it does at 40) Only Mum went completly into the cave. I poked my head in because the skull cave was full of (you guessed it!) real live (not so 'live' anymore!) human skulls put there by real live Pirate Ships!! Someone had neatly placed about 40 skulls in a large group. The skulls have been there for almost 200 years ago. One of the skulls had someone's name carved inot the back of it. I can't remember the name though.
On the way back we stopped at Joyce's village and bought some bananas and some garlic nuts. Despite what they're called garlic nuts taste more like almonds than garlic. The bananas are only about as long as my finger and they tatste really sweet.
Tomorrow we will be leaving late morning to go to Bagaman Island, about 28 miles away.
