All were very ...
... met two girls on my tour- an Australian and a Canadian- who are very cool, so I am going to meet up with them for drinks at Utopia. Since bars close at 11:00 here, apparently the thing to do is to go bowling after they close because the bowling alley CAN still serve alcohol. So it looks like drinks and bowling are on the agenda for the evening.
