    ... trip and trying to stay calm as the vertigo kicked in. Praying the brakes held as we got stuck behind a refuse truck. No turning round, no overtaking, no way back! On the plus side, we got to see alot more scenery and had a guided tour all the way back and I'd treated us to a leg of lamb in the shopping for tea. I'd also found a jar of mint jelly with a Waitrose label!!! Treasure! We invited Ingrid and Roman for a meal onboard with a view, under the mango ...

    ... that were so american, but there were other bits that looked a little island style ghetto.... I honestly have no idea what I was expecting, and it was dark, but I quickly realised that I was not in "Kansas" anymore. I was also a little worried on the trip about the hotel. I had never been in contact with them myself, and I was worried about whether I had a reservation at all, if they knew that I was coming so late, if anyone would be there to let me in ...

    ... to be wild fires. Every now and then we would see large flames leap up to the sky. With the proximity of homes, this reminded me of the fires in Colorado Springs last summer, just on a smaller scale. By nightfall we could no longer see the flames.
