This morning our party went to a beach just outside
, to a beach hut loned (sic) to the British Council
by the Minister here. Three of the
British Council ladies joined and we swam and boated and pick-nicked then we
swam again in the afternoon. It was a
quiet party but very pleasant.
Arrangements were made for some girls from the Legation to join us next
The wife of the
Representative of the British Council invited us back to
her house for a drink. A beautiful and very large house with a well stocked bar.
Joe & I went to an open air cinema this evening to see “Love Letters” – the mosquitoes bothered us.

We had to cancell our trip to the beach today when a heavy thunder storm burst at this morning. The Legation girls sent round a note inviting us to an informal dance at the
Club on Tuesday evening. The storm washed away much of the embankment
on the sea wall in from the Pension. The
labourers are so slow that it will probably take months to repair. St George’s
