... I had not only caught the flu but I had reeled it in and put it up on the wall, all the partying had finally caught up with me and I was bed ridden all day with a booming head ache, ultra runny nose and annoying cough. It was the start of a tough week to come.
Monday came and I had a new teacher "Pilar", Pilar is my friend and if you remember previously I have partied with her and her friends multiple times. It is almost impossible to get Pilar as ...

All in all it was a great day and we met some fantastic people. To end our day we visited some bat caves at sunset to watch the bats come out.
