Our second day we decided to grab one of the hop-on hop-off buses that stop at the resort. At the first stop near a market we got off and decided to have a look for some souvenirs where I picked up a hat to keep my white face looking white in the hot sun. The hat was inexpensive and as we later found out, easily available for purchase in about every place we visited. At first a bit rough but with some warm sweat and good use it became more comfortable throughout the trip and was going to be a good souvenir on its own upon our return to Ireland.


The hat was placed in the overhead along with my carry-on bag for the flight home, and not being one to regularly wear a hat I forgot it on the plane. It was a sad day.
