We chatted with our Brazilian roommate about her travels, as well as a former Queen's student from Toronto and now Vancouver. She's travelling for four months, which is an insanely long time in my (and my bank account's) opinion! For dinner we had burritos and Belgian ...

Off we set for our milkshakes but Jo changed her order and decided that she would instead like a fruit smoothy which included the puréed seeds of the lemon which went in to it. Added fibre is not what she needs but hey it's all part of the journey.
