... group was on Teide, so we really needed to bring warm things in order to survive in the cold mountains. We got dinner in this quaint restaurant (which was in no way big enough for all of us, but I appreciated it), and then we took the windy, terrifying uphill trip to an area near the observatory we had visited earlier in the trip.
