We had another lovely dinner at the Mexican with Liz and heard about how she was going to get to the animal park she is volunteering in for 2 weeks. It sounded like a hassle but she was keen to go so hopefully it all works out for her. Vicki and booked the death road bike tour for the next day and on the way back to the hostel I sucked it up and ...
