... decided to relax and escape the heat. It was around 37 degrees. Michal behaved bravely and faced the heat I must say. He almost passed out once or twice and did not complain... A lot.

... appetite so we went into a cafe on the street. Andy had a local beef stew omelette which was very nice and Kayley had a tuna sandwich which was so nice (and small) that she ordered a second. We spent the next couple of hours eating, having waffles, talking, playing games and relaxing which is something we haven't done since the jungle. It was a great way to spend some time.
