... and 2 hours later arrived in Colonia and dropped the car at the port.
Because we dropped the car at a different rental shop than we hired it from, the guy didn't even check the damage that we did to it. 3 absolutely destroyed rims and no doubt some scratches from bottoming it out a couple of times, was meant to cost us $900, but cost us nothing.

Our bad luck with the weather continued and the rain unfortunately pursued us all the way to our destination, meaning that this supposedly Mediterranean-esque beach town more closely resembled North Berwick.
