Breakfast was fantastic! Rooms clean, television with cable. WIFI is available. At times, the people at front desk seemed preoccupied and unwilling to accommodate.

... spears. The armour looked pretty creepy too.
After no longer being used as a prison, it was converted into a cotton mill. Then buildings were built up against it, parts were removed and the old castle was forgotten about as it could no longer be seen.

We decide after an hour or so that we need some ice cream and a seat as it is hot and our feet are still pretty fragile; easier said then done. Most restaurants seem to serve only beer and food. We finally find a nice place with ice cream and "milkshakes". I put that in quotes because that's what I ordered and is not what I got. What I received was ...
We had another sleep in today, then got ready and went down for a bowl of leftover salad from last night. After a chat with Karina for a while, we headed down to Ledebergplein so Darren could get a Turkish pizza wrap from the Turkish bakery down the road. When we got there though, it was closed, so we went to a fries shop instead, and got our regular special sauce with samurai sauce on our fries. We must have eaten enough fries lately though, because we couldn't even finish ...
