... And ask every souvenir shop and restaurant whether anyone had turned in a lost key. Nothing. Not even the presence of the church had compelled whomever picked it up to do a good deed.

I know how much this taxi should be.

    This hotel/hostel is definitely one of the best we've ever been in. The rooms are extremely tidy and spacious and the beds are pretty good as well. What makes this place stand out however is the very friendly staff. Miguel provided us with all the assitance we needed and was definitely the nicest hotel owner we've ever met.
