tourist day

we went to one of the small island here, and were able to visit a couple of hindu temples and buddhist temples....but the most exciting part of our day was when we found Burmese noodles! we have been seeking them out for months now....and it was worth the wait!

moon boats

bangladesh is known for their beautiful moon boats they craft and a few days ago we went searching with my friend to help him find a boat that he could help repair, and instead we found a place where he could help build a new boat which is his dream. such a cool thing to see these being made with no electric tools, everything by hand!

saint martin.....

all the fisherman's kids help with sorting the dried little fish.

saint martin adventure

spent 4 days on saint martin helping the surf club out a little bit. it was my first time out on the island that actually has blue water and not the normal brown water here. most of the time was spent on this fishing boat trying to get shot of them surfing. it was quite the trip and i never want to be in that boat again! it was a good thing i took motion sickness meds.

attempting to go film at the beach....

since the boys have been fasting, that means they also gave up surfing for a month. so we tried to go to the beach and didn't forget Boojoe (the dog pictured) who won't let us leave him. the beach was crowded and everytime we pulled out our cameras, we would be surrounded.
