We pulled over at a McDonald's to use their internet and discovered that you actually needed a code sent to your mobile phone to be able to connect but since we didn't have a SIM card it was an expensive and fruitless exercise. It was about 7pm by now and I was getting pretty stressed out. Matt wanted to just rock up at the place we had booked and ...
First, uncle Raphael came over with his family for a quick visit. When he left my dad said he was coming back later. Later my cousins Tim, who's 10 as well, and Alina, who's 7. Half an hour later Raphael came back. We had lunch and took a photo of the family. I like playing with my cousins. ...
