“Swimming was tough because of the waves, wind and tides, but in the end it was the most fun, fun and simplest part of the long story of the last 6 years and the last 48 hours have been very stressful. “I’ve accumulated,” said Dina, who lost her luggage on arrival. She forgot her earplugs just before swimming began.
