... the people we
were with knew the VIP members so we got right in and even skipped the
cover charge! We were literally in our own little corner of the bar with
a bottle of vodka bigger then my body! I may have had a little
too much fun ;)! We met a lot of great people and the night might be hard

After our hike up the very steep trail (yes even Tom went), we drove to a nearby winery and medieval town. Back at 5 pm for a tour of the Monastery/gardens, wine cellars and wine tasting. Then an early dinner and bed.
