... store in town, bought some cereal and milk, then walked back to the room. Later in the evening, Alvaro stopped by and introduced me to the Dutch lady in the room next to mine; it was the same young lady I met on the trail, small island! Her name is Iris, and we chatted about hiring a guide together, but decided instead to split the cost of a rental car and go on our own.
