    Once we were seated on the plane we both closed our eyes to try and sleep. We were lucky as the plane was not full, so we had three seats between the two of us.

Our taxi driver picked us up soon as we walked out of the terminal and we had a lovely day waiting us. Everything ...

    ... I had an amazing meal at an Argentine steakhouse. The next morning I was ready to go again. Armed with a bag full of snacks and a freshly made grilled cheese sandwich that the lovely lady from the hostel got up to make at 4:30am, I hopped in the taxi she hailed for me (goodbye Costa Rican swindlers) and I was at the bus station by 5.
