... an even game, but by the end I was suffering. Here there are no convenient drinking fountains or anything like that, so I had to go back to the hostel, get my money (I didn't bring anything besides a ball), and then go out again to buy water. After we had recovered a bit we headed out for pizza and beer.
We met a real upstanding Colombian on the way back. He was dirty and skinny and had 2 tear tattoos below his left eye. He was drugged and or concussed ...
... to find our length. We were all a little on-and-off but I managed to hone my throws I a little and smashed a couple of the gunpowder sections.

The gold museum had some interesting exhibitions with one of the highlights being a mummified corpse tied up and placed in a bag. Not too sure how it resembled gold ...
