Day 5! A Mad Rush; but one of the Two Most Memorable Experiences^^

... we spent all of this time, and money to spend a little over an hour in a little town on the top of the mountain, but really the experience was in getting there and back.

We went up over 2,500 meters, in at least 29 tunnels through the mountain, and it provided wonderful views of waterfalls, bridges and mountains not seen any other way.

They were really nice and liked to travel also so we spoke about that most of the time. We couldn’t stay up too late since we had to be on the railway train at 9am.
