... did not! I ordered the house salad which was supposed to have onions, peppers and chicken. I was shocked when I received a salad covered in baby octopi and mussels in the shell!!! Needless to say Don ate all of the octopi and mussels and I picked through the rest.

After lunch, we decided to do some light shopping and search for some sunscreen, which is desperately needed at this point! Apparently, you can't purchase sunscreen ANYWHERE in this city!!!! We ...
