I think I thought it was sort of funny to wear this top in the middle of a tropical paradise, and that maybe I would blend in all reverse camouflage style to where you could only make out my head in a mass of Alice in Wonderland-scale blooms. Nope. But sitting underneath gargantuan rain trees with not a single other human in sight turned out to be much better. There’s really something about this place that makes the idea of being a barefoot hermit so appealing.
