... and cooking. We assumed our meals would be basic hot dogs and hamburgers but our first supper was burritos with lots of toppings to choose from. It turns out our tour leader (who does the shopping and meal planning) loves cooking so has many creative ideas for group meals. That night we all put 6 dollars in for a huge pot of punch to celebrate a girl's birthday.
