nothing to special. Back at the hotel me and Kirsty returned dads
bike we hired a few days before and bought supplies for the train
before meeting dad for dinner. The taxi ride in the evening down to
the station went well, no seat belts as usual they had been removed,

I got so scared because the wheels were sliding in the mud and I thought we would slide right off the mountain. I was so relieved when we got back to the bus. On the way back to the resort, we stopped at a spice garden to buy spices. We bought this delicious batch of Brownies there as well. Then we returned back to the resort.
