Fresh drinking water is always a problem on islands, here and in other parts of the world. At present it is necessary to bring bottled water with us when we visit, so in early June I went to Isla Verde to supervise the installation of a small water distillation system.
The well water on that part of the island is brackish, and this new equipment will mean we can now have some water without the salty taste. We will no longer have to bring mineral water with us on every trip.
Some of my pals from my old high school decided to come with me to see the new resort development. We only had a couple of days on the island and my friends enjoyed the food and the tranquility of Isla Verde and said the refreshing sea breeze put them to sleep.
Sadly, some of my friends had to leave after only one night but Edith stayed another day. After the work was organised we tried to fit as much fun as possible into the time we had, so before she left we went for a boat ride around the island. She also enjoyed swimming with the kids, eating lots of fruits like mangoes, plums and coconut, and of course taking pictures.
It was only a short visit, but all of them promise, they will be back on isla verde.
