Woke up again at 9h and met Hermanneke, such a cute little boy! Had breakfast with a homemade pineapple, coconut and ginger smoothie, yummy. Ready to hit town!

We shared Jefferson and his wife's (Nina) bedroom along with their dog (Scott) and two cats (Cheetah and John). A little tight, but they were super nice, showed us the city, and ...
