Day 5

Today we went around the beach where we will go and protect sea turtle nests tomorrow. The water was so blue and clear. We learned about the coastal forest and the importance it has. The private beach we were on was one of the only private protected beaches left and a construction company from France just bought it. It's sad to see something so beautiful and needed for creatures like sea turtles probably be destroyed. We also went to a museum about greek technology. The man who owns it has spent 36 years working on amazing models that show what the greeks had and how they built what they did. He based all of his work off ancient greek documents. The passion and brains this man has for his work is unbelievable.
