    ... noted they use Solar powered street lighting, fairly appropriate as there is so much sunshine. Also on the way also saw wind turbines (not as many as in New Zealand).Another interesting observation was the way people start building a house, and when it is partly complete they leave it... it can take up to three years before the building is completed... weird.We had two ...

After saying goodbye to everyone that we had gotten to meet at the volunteer house, we asked our host family to arrange a cab to take us to the bus terminal so that we could catch our early morning bus south.

    Suitably refuelled, we set off on our walk up to the viewpoint.
