    ... travel agency district of the city and was a short bus ride away from the historic part which is set on the hill side.

We decided to fly there and do it ourselves so booked the flights for a couple of weeks time. We got our yellow fever vaccination ...

We had originally wanted to go see some of the museums in the area but apparently everything is closed on Mondays, so we didn't get to check much out.

They live up to 150 years old, are herbivores and there are about 3000 on the Island now. Watched them eating, walking and lying in the mud. Highlands had very lush growth. Cattle grazing as well. Bought goods at the shop then bus/dingy back to boat for crew introduction. Dinner, info talk about tomorrow then ...
