... the room we stopped at a convenience store for a bottle of plum wine to celebrate and at another street vendor for an ice cream cone (we couldn't seem to find any birthday cake but ice cream works just as well in a pinch and the mango sauce had real chunks of mango). The remainder of the evening was spent sitting on the balcony, sipping wine and enjoying the music as it progressed from smooth jazz to a smattering of guitar hero's ...
