    ... to have lunch, he was to drop me off...oh well his fault not mine! Off we go, at a much slower pace, as he is not sure where I'm staying... I'm greeted by Heidi our hotel proprietress, nothing like any Heidi's you are picturing, believe me, but made of sturdy German stock! I'm greeted by the hotel dog barking ferociously and the hotel cat wanting to stay in my room...that ain't happening! So RAIN! stops long enough to walk to the market to ...

    ... greeted by the yoga teacher who was so full of zen one could not help but smile and take on some of that zen. Yes - we got our zen on!! The hour and 15 mins session seemed to go on for longer than that, and it did.

The hot springs were amazing. After a 15 minute hike through bushland we came to two wells that were on property of a local family. Here were the two hottest pools. So hot ...

Until one guy stopped me and commented on the red poppy I keep on the strap of my backpack. He was nice so I said I'd come back after having a better look around.
