Took a 1 hour boat ride. Waiting on the boat for the passengers to on board was probably the worst feeling. I felt like I was going to puke sitting there as the waves were so big and the boat kept moving up and down. Once the boat ride started, my sea sickness started to slowly fade away. It was pretty cold on the boat and I had not jacket with me. So next time bring a jacket as out in the waters tends to always be a bit colder.

For girls you have to wear a head scarf and have your hair covered up inside the mosque. If you don’t you can’t enter the mosque. You can also borrow a head scarf at the mosque. They also give you a dress to cover up your legs if you are wearing anything too tight. Some girls would wear leggings, so they were given a dress to wear on top of their leggings. All tourists had to enter from the tourist section. I don’t think I did a great job wrapping my scarf around my head. I realized it kind of takes some skills to get the scarf wrapped perfectly around.
