By the end 4 of us got detached from the crawl, we didn't want to pay any more entry so we were heading back to the hostel when we stumped upon an Irish bar. There we got to request some music so I asked for Ecuador by Sash and some Justin Timberlake where He played cry me a river ha. This other guy requested David Bowie lets dance.
