    Take care in the sun !

    by Pauldelabar Updated Nov 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I know that one of the high priorities on many peoples minds is to get in the Sun as fast as they can and for as long as they can to get a tan to be proud of when they return home. But.........


    If you are fair skinned or even if not, USE Sun protection cream or lotion BEFORE hitting the beach. Even if just walking around town you can suffer from the Suns effects.

    Buy and wear a Hat or Cap to protect the top of your head.

    DO NOT sunbathe on the first day for more than TEN MINUTES ! I know that does not seem a lot of time but to avoid looking like a lobster and feeling itchy and uncomfortable, ten minutes only is recommended. Then gradually lengthen the time each day.

    Remember that when in the Sea or Pool, the water acts like a mirror and reflects extra Ultraviolet back at you.

    Seawater having a high salt concentration, has the same effect as putting salt on Pork Crackling ! So shower off as soon as you come out of the sea or saltwater swimming pool. By the way, beware of the little showers on the beach. They are intended for removing sand and are SALT water; so a shower in your apartment / hotel is better unless you are CERTAIN that the water is not salty!

    Beware Dodgy Late Night Chinese Take-Away

    by amapola66 Updated Mar 11, 2005

    Beware the late night Chinese Takeaway Restaurant that is the only open place in the wee hours in the winter (near the old part of town I think).

    Late one Sunday night, a friend decided (against his better nature) that he would risk a take-out from the only place open at 3 am.
    It was also out of season.

    He spent the next two days incredibly ill in bed with horrific food poisoning after some iffy seafood concoction.


    I will try to get more details as to which restaurant/take-out it was).
