Then we hit some of the shops, but I was feeling so ill from being overtired that we headed back to the hostel to officially check in and then have a nap. After our hour sleep I did feel better and we got ready to go out for dinner. We went to Pe Na Areia, and had more grilled fish but this time in a soya sauce, with vegetables and rice. It was truly delicious, ...
