... other direction. The police officer then starts playing good cop and telling us he'll do us a favour and not give us a ticket if we give him money. Not only did he want money but he refused to give back our car registration, by this point Kike was losing his temper and began to get rather stern with him.

We are both very relaxed and Johnny is enjoying the variety of foods on board.
