Since it was Ahmed leaving tomorrow we let him decide on the plans for the evening and he chose chili vanilla for dinner. I tried the fresh tortilla wrap with sweet potato fries and salsa, as well as helping Sam finish off the pate she left! Ahmed had wanted to go to el centro tonight for the salsa dancing....I don't do dancing so ...
... impromptu night out. We've been here 3 weeks and not been on a night out yet and too be honest not really drunk so it was about time to sample the night life. So we picked up some beer and had a few drinks at the hotel before heading to nightclub, bed....and what a night! It was turned out to be one of the best nights I've had. The club was huge and packed with locals as well as a few tourists. We bumped into a few travellers who we'd met on ...
