We didn't pay all that much so we all know that saying?? Went to McDonalds for dinner. GOTTA experience foreign McDonalds. The young lady asked us where we were from and got very excited. She loves Australia. Tried for an early night for an early start ...

... so we got long ropes ready. Once 1pm came our light stayed on red and we were getting very frustrated by all this waiting.
