When we were chatting he mentioned that he meets lots of people and ones like us that are just like showing his mum and dad around! Now hold on a minute! The guide was 39years old so maybe John was old enough but ........ . Anyway a great day indeed despite the rain. Now time to rest (although the power is off in the hotel due to maintenance and there's no internet!) and plan for dinner and our rest day ...
