    The place was clean, showers were fine. TV is on its last legs. You get toast, tea and coffee included. We stayed in a double room (it also had a bunk).

    To celebrate our previous climbing feat, we decided we'd go out, get some beers, and eat plenty more. We got some roti, all types from sweet to plain. At the hostel, I invited two Danish girls to join us for drinks at a place called Upper Star. They were already headed there, so Neil, Keel and I met them there. Us three musketeers bought a Heineken …

    Vervolgens richting de bioscoop, voor een film. Gravity 3d dit keer. Erg leuke en spectaculaire film.

De voorspellingen zagen er namelijk gunstig uit, ondanks dat het hard rekende. Kwamen daar ook nog een Duits meisje tegen die ook mee wou doen, scheelt in de kosten. Alsnog is de trip enorm duur, …

    Ik werd wakker getikt door Robbie die ik de vorige dag had ontmoet. Precies op tijd overigens, want het was 07:55 en mijn vlucht ging om 08:55. Ik had de avond ervoor overmoedig gezegd dat ik zelf wel zou wakker worden, maar het alarmpje in mijn digitale camera doet het niet al te best.
