.....4.30am touch down! Yay! We were not in the mood for anything other than sleeping! Not going to happen. We knew how much the cab was so didn't get ripped off. Winner! We are locals now! Cab to our accommodation and our cab driver was not happy. Totally didn't understand that we needed to go to a hostel to pick up our accommodation key.
