... had to catch a Train that evening so we headed purposefully back to the hostel. After Sofia left, I went and got some food from a vender just outside the hostel, including BBQ’d chicken wings and an Aubergine, just a side point, I didn’t realise Aubergine and Eggplant were the same thing I thought they were very similar things but it turns out Eggplant is just the American Name for them, Which I have really come to enjoy.

Sophia, our contact at CUPL, picked us up from the train station, and then brought us back to the hotel where I am now.
