So I wish I had more to say about this little town, but we didn't do much except rest and recover. I guess after 6 months of backpacking it's ok to give ourselves a day or two off.

... while the botanical gardens offered a distraction, allowing us to fritter away a few hours with a picnic. Back at our hostel, we were serenaded by a bloke aimlessly strumming his guitar.
