As we figured out where we wanted to sit our driver came over into the restaurant and started to let us know to come with him. Then he started arguing with the guy who had taken us up the mountain. Another man, who I assume owns the restaurant, came over and began arguing with our driver ...
... the threat of a two-year-old sitting next to me, my flight to New York was surprisingly easy. I took it as a good sign when the little boy handed me his MONKEY stuffed animal to play with. How did he know my new favorite animal?!
