... BE ATTACKING! So I plowed forward telling Mitch that I wanted to explore a different path back. This was not my best decision of the night. You see, my minor detour took us not only past our hostel, but about 2 miles (3.25 kilometers) west of our hostel. This was uncharted territory, not even in our class hikes. We were so lost.

The next day we headed for the Hop On Hop Off ...
... good to let them wander through and buy souvenirs.
The market was really fun, but by 9 pm I was pretty tired of walking around so I got a cab back to my hotel and crashed. I know a school group wouldn't all be able to get cabs, so I will give some ideas of travel options at the end of my trip based on what I think would be most appropriate.
