We walked back through the market and ate on a side street - the same vegetable and rice fill a bowl deal, but a slightly airer location. We then went back to make the most of our decent Internet connection, Skyping and uploading hotel reviews. The following morning, much to the dismay of Villa Aphay's owner, we moved to Merry 2 Guesthouse - we'd pre-booked anticipating a ...
