Luckily I had a rain coat and bag cover, but everything still got damp with such a ...
... the perfect remedy after a sweaty, dusty walk.
In the evening they put on entertainment for us and the other groups in the form of a 90s/salsa disco! Of course I can't help myself and having been totally wholesome and the image of health for the previous 3 days of trekking, I get carried away with the cheap beer and overdo it slightly.
