the Gili islands

We are going to the Gili islands today.
We leave Senggigi by taxi, and follow the coast, which is superb. We take a boat and reach Gili Air.
We do some snorkeling, from the boat. It is less impressive than what I expected: the water is not so clear, and there aren't so many fish. We continue to another island. Snorkeling again. It's better, as there is wreck here. But it's not a ship wreck, it's the wreck of a pontoon. What does a pontoon does here, so far from the shore?
We continue to the third island, where we disembark.
A number of hippies here, and bored-looking people who drink their cocktail while looking at the ocean. No cars here: bicycles and horse-drawn carriages.
We find a restaurant, and even dare to visit the toilet.
Sunbathing on the beach, and then back to Lombok.
