... enjoyed the ones where you sit in a rubber ring, no one dies in a rubber ring. (Although saying this, Lily Hall once told me in year 1 that one of her grandmas floated away in a dingy never to be seen again. Luckily she had five to begin with.) After we have finished sliding, floating, screaming and swimming we made our way out for some food and then to buy some more alcohol.

Our hotel was in a dodgy ...

This was fine and if you haven't done it before or haven't been in an Asian market before then would no doubt have been very interesting, but being shown a cardamon seed, being made to smell it and hold it (with the obligatory 'ooh' noises being made) wasn't going to be my highlight of the course (the Cinnamon stick on the other hand, WOW!)
