Because we only have one full day here we decided to try and pack as much in as possible. We got up and 9 and we were out the door for 10. We got a quick breakfast consisting of muesli, fruit and yogurt from a street food stall around the corner from our hotel. It cost 50 Bart each.

... and turned into a bit of a class clown - one gangly man from Holland named Axel (who has NO idea how cool his name is) said as I left that he didn't know what the team would do without me. I laughed and made some kind of sarcastic MVP joke, but then he earnestly said that he will miss me making him laugh every day. It's a mismatched group of people here but everyone is very nice.
