That night was very chilled, there's not a lot you can do in a hostel when there's no one there, The next day I went to Malecon 2000 which is the renovated walkway next to the river. ...

    ... At the end there is a hill, it's covered in colourful houses. There are no roads only cement staircases. It's that steep.

    ... were everywhere, on the benches, in the trees, all over the floor and quite unphased by being photographed by countless humans. It was the most bizarre, surreal thing and I couldn't quite believe my eyes. Imagine Trafalgar Square not just with pigeons but with Iguanas too. No body knows why or how they came to inhabit this small park in the city but they did and are now quite an extraordinary ...

    ... I really enjoyed showing them round the place, introducing them to my colleagues (both teaching and admin) and then introducing them to some of my students and including them in the first part of my lesson! We were working on past simple & past continuous within the context of childhood memories.

    They took a taxi at 7.30 (that I had asked reception to order for them) back to their hostel. The plan is for them to ...
