    Funky Monkey Backpackers is set back from town in a quiet neighborhood. The only accommodation they had available was a large canvas tent with two beds, which we found odd because the place seemed pretty empty. Just as we had settled in with some beers and card games, 16 Finnish girls paraded into the common area in a sudden whirlwind of chatter and excitement.

    ... enough getting to the attraction, which basically consisted of jumping off a cliff with a bungee cord attached. The danger of the attraction was marked by a nearby shrine and chapel.
