... and very touristic. Later that day I went back to my hostel and met many people staying there. I met Alex who is originally from Mexico but now lives in Montreal Canada and has a career as a sous chef. For supper I had the priveledge of enjoying some fresh cod with jumbo shrimp and mixed vegetable he decided to make. Best meal ever! Take a look at the photo of Alex and his master piece, tasty right?
That same night I met Marco, ...
