... me of Hazlitts Brambleberry a very sweet dessert wine. Right after treating ourselves we waited for the next bus. I'm sure glad we got off at Alina's because the bus that came was too notch, AC, comfy seats and a tv that was playing old 70-80s music videos on MTV. It was yet another amazing moment.
