I caught the metro over to the Jardin Botanico (Botanical Garden), which had come highly recommended by Melissa, so I wanted to check it out. I am not usually impressed with botanical gardens. Almost every city in the world has one, but they are not usually too great. This one was very impressive. It isn’t too big, which is good because everything was really concentrated.

Got drinks and discussed how to gate crash the party, which was so invitingly going on below us.

Alex snuck behind the doormans back, we eventually all got in but was really obvious we'd gatecrashed given we weren't ...
