... a nice meal and bottle of vino tinto (Peter turned his nose up at his half a glass due to it tasting like "vinegar") it was back to the campsite just outside town where the sound of the eternal pumping of an airbed was cutting through the darkness. This guy had been at it since we left the site 4 hours before - that's dedication for you! Fair play. During the night, however, karma stuck as my laughing at the other guy's mattress problems came back to bite me ...
